My family is impacted by cancer.

There are so many questions.

How can I talk to my children?

What can we do as a family?

Well Beings Studio engages the arts to support emotional well-being and open conversation with children, teens, and families. We break stigmas around medical trauma, chronic illness, disability and inclusion. Together we develop coping skills, empower creativity and build community.

Well Beings Studio fosters a climate of purposeful inclusion, an environment where all can feel safe, valued, cared for, and given an opportunity to form meaningful connections with each other. We cherish the diversity of humanity, a diversity which includes differences in sex, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, range of abilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, financial means, education, and political perspective. These beliefs and practices apply to all of the activities and decisions of our organization.

Just wanted to tell you that I sent a copy of Little Green Monster to a woman a few weeks ago  - included it in the package with her wig.  She texted me to say how wonderful it was to receive and read to her youngest.  Sounds like her family is going through a lot (outside of her diagnosis) so I am so thankful I could just pop the book in too as a surprise - it was well received, a tool for her and her family.
