Creating a Cancer-fighting Superhero

Cancer is incredibly evil and I expand on that in my latest blog on Cure Today. I also demonstrate how cancer patients and/or cancer caregivers can take a creative, hopefully therapeutic, break and draw their own cancer-fighting superhero. 



Cancer, Bears and Fierce Compassion (and drawing)

In my latest blog post on Cure Today, I share a short story titled Cancer, Bears, and Fierce Compassion. It includes another easy drawing lesson for cancer patients and/or caregivers.



The Colors of Love and Loss

The Colors of Love and Loss

A book I helped to create with Dr. Joanne Cacciatore is now available. It is a FREE resource for grieving children and you can download it here: https://www.missfoundation.org/the-colors-of-love-and-loss-by-dr-joanne-cacciatore/

Dr. Joanne Cacciatore is also the author of Bearing the Unbearable* and is a globally-recognized expert in traumatic grief and a gift to humanity. Please learn more about her loving and devoted work with the bereaved by visiting her Facebook page or the MISS Foundation Facebook page.

I do have to admit there was a lot of heartache associated with working on this book on so many levels, not the least of which is grieving the loss of my wife to hereditary cancer. But I hope the tears shed while illustrating it will help children facing the unbearable loss of a sibling.

Disponible también en español.

*The first book I read after the death of my beloved wife and I highly recommend it to the grief stricken (and the grief-adjacent as well.) More information about Bearing the Unbearable is available on Dr. Cacciatore's Miss Foundation website. Or you can buy it on Amazon.
