What Is Creative Recovery?

Using the imagination to create a path out of trauma.

WHAT IF?

IMAGINATION HAS A ROLE IN CANCER RECOVERY?

That is what I am working towards, creating spaces in cancer centers and communities to use imagination as a tool in recovery.

IMAGINATION BEATS CANCER

In 2020 I was diagnosed with a highly aggressive form of ovarian cancer.  

I underwent a total hysterectomy and 6 rounds of chemotherapy to stabilize the disease.

Now I work in the cancer world performing at benefits, using comedy and storytelling to share how imagination is a tool in recovery.

THE GOOD NEWS

I am well enough to perform, create and enjoy life!

In 2021, I was awarded a grant by the Canada Council for the Arts to investigate the role of  imagination in cancer recover.
