Expressive Writing Group with David Richman

May 18, 2023
34:30 minutes

Author & Motivational Speaker David Richman joins our Expressive Writing Group and speaks about his experience writing Cycle of Lives, which chronicles the remarkable stories of 15 cancer survivors he meets while biking across the country – 5,000 miles in six weeks – while sorting out his own emotions over having lost his sister to cancer years before.

David talks about navigating the emotional trauma of a cancer diagnosis (and in life) and how Expressive Writing – telling your cancer story – can help to reduce the negative self-talk we carry in our minds, leading to a more healing outlook.

For anyone struggling with the emotions associated with cancer, whether you are a patient, survivor, caregiver, or family member, Complementary Cancer Care offers support, free of charge, through our Education & Navigation services.

We offer private consultations with one of our personalized cancer information and education specialists. As patients, survivors, and caregivers become more knowledgeable about cancer, they often find that the fear and anxiety that comes with a diagnosis can be significantly diminished.  Our oncology nurse provides one-on-one cancer education and health coaching, while our social worker focuses on mental/emotional health and life skills.
