Creative Expression Series for Breast Cancer Survivors at Westmed
When ten-year survivor Rebecca Pine learned that she had breast cancer, she found a lot of information about what to expect physically – treatment and surgical options. However, it was hard for her to find information on what to expect emotionally. That’s why she used her love for nature and creative expression to bring a Creative Expression Workshop Series for Breast Cancer Survivors to Westmed.
At Westmed, the Creative Expression Workshop Series for Breast Cancer Survivors provides a supportive environment where participants can discuss the ways breast cancer affects a woman’s emotional landscape, physical appearance and sense of femininity. Through art and nature, the sessions will focus on projects such as journaling, collage work, painting and more. This safe space allows participants to also share their own personal stories with their peers.

Gilda’s Club – A Cancer Support Community Group
We know that a cancer diagnosis can bring new and intense emotions. Emotional support can help ease the intensity of these concerns to normalize feelings, reduce anxiety, isolation and emotional distress.
Westmed is proud to partner with Gilda’s Club Westchester. The goal is to help our patients identify strategies for managing the emotional and practical stressors of living with cancer. Gilda’s Club Westchester facilitates on-site programs to assist with managing the stress and anxiety that often accompanies a cancer diagnosis.
