Healing With Words is an online therapeutic writing group, offered to people who are currently receiving treatment for cancer or who have completed treatment within the last two years. The group, led by an oncology social worker, will feature a variety of topics related to coping with a diagnosis of cancer. Participants will have the opportunity to read several writing pieces, complete creative writing exercises, and create their own unique works. The group will be a space to respond to writing prompts, share work, and participate in discussion surrounding the writing process itself.

To participate in this writing group, you will need to complete our online registration process. After joining, you can read and post messages 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

At this time, CancerCare’s online support groups are only available to people residing within the United States (including Puerto Rico and U.S. territories).

Our next group will begin June 1, 2020.

If you have any questions about this group, please contact Caroline Edlund, LCSW-R, 800-813-4673, ext. 6128 or
