Idea: A narrative therapy storytelling course that helps cancer patients express their life journeys, find inner strength, and inspire those who are coping with the disease.
You Night Inspiring Activities encourages women to accept life after cancer, understanding that mental and emotional wellbeing is an often-overlooked yet critical aspect of cancer care. The Story Crafting E-Course is designed to put cancer survivors together virtually to share their experiences, find inner strength, and inspire others. They feel that simply by articulating their experience so that everyone can appreciate it, people living with cancer can have their lives changed for the better.
You Night Empowering Events' Founder and Executive Producer is Lisa McKenzie. She believes in the power of stories and encourages people to remember that they are more than their cancer diagnosis.
