“I found the C is for Courage journal to be a unique, personal, and comprehensive piece that enables clinicians and support groups to provide emotional support to all patients, even in the busiest of clinics. This piece is wonderful in so many aspects, but particularly in its gentle approach of encouraging patients to self-reflect at their own pace via thoughtful identification and expression of their feelings throughout the entire trajectory (diagnosis through survivorship and palliative care). I will definitely be recommending this journal to patients to help them find inner strength and calm as well as feel empowered to express their feelings as they define their “new normal.”

From the moment of diagnosis, cancer is a roller-coaster ride of emotions, changing plans and circumstances, as one copes with the pains, problems and challenges of the disease. C is for Courage offers a place to step off of the ride, a portable sanctuary for artful distraction and a platform for quiet contemplation of life in the face of the uncertainties that living with, fighting, and surviving the disease present.
The journal prompts are designed to invite you to write about the practical and emotional aspects of the journey with cancer. The mandalas and abstract patterns offer a means to disengage from concerns and fears and let the mind and senses flow with colors and creative self-discovery.
C is for Courage is a quiet, gentle ally for processing the experience of cancer.
