Healing Arts Workshops

The BCRC is here to empower breast cancer patients and survivors to take an active role in maintaining and improving their quality of life during and after breast cancer treatment.  We know all too well how a diagnosis of breast cancer stirs up so many emotions.  It is important to have an outlet for these emotions – a way to acknowledge, explore and express them in a positive way.

We find that engaging in creative arts can be a powerful healing experience for breast cancer survivors facing health challenges. Healing arts helps in so many ways including expressing thoughts and emotions, lowering stress and anxiety, connecting with oneself in a deeper way, coping with grief, and creating something unique and beautiful!

BCRC healing arts workshops include painting, drawing, sculpting, equine therapy, creative writing, and more. To find out more about upcoming healing arts workshops, please contact Melissa White-McMahon at (609) 497-2100 x 349 or mwhite@ywcaprinceton.org
