Cancer and Creativity

The staff and providers here at Alaska Women’s Cancer Care strongly believe in the incredible healing powers of creativity, music and arts. We encourage anyone who has been touched by cancer to explore the ways in which having a creative outlet can improve quality of life. It can be anything from writing, singing, dancing, painting, drawing, knitting, quilting, sculpting, scrapbooking, jewelry making, and/or playing an instrument; all forms of creative expression can be therapeutic.

Let Every Woman Know – Alaska, Alaska Women’s Cancer Care’s sister non-profit organization, is dedicated to raising awareness of gynecologic cancers and providing support for Alaskan survivors. Each year Let Every Woman Know – Alaska showcases works of art made by patients, friends and family who have used artistic expression to cope with cancer and to exhibit the beautiful way in which creativity can heal.

If you are interested in learning more about how to use creativity as a vehicle for therapeutic expression, please inquire at our office about the Let Every Woman Know – Alaska Arts of Healing Workshops.
