About the Book

Creative Prescriptions ™ for Women with Cancer is a creative first-aid kit that specifically addresses many of the challenges faced by cancer patients. This guide will help you to tap into your inherent ability to be creative and its potential to heal physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. Creativity is your “prescription” to reduce stress, raise spirits, and facilitate the healing process.

"Annette does an incredible job of providing women who are healing from cancer a portable art studio, and journal so they can tap into the healing that happens when we are creating joyfully. This book is the framework for escaping the fear and stress of cancer through the prescription of creating authentically. How wonderful that women do not need to be good at art or have any art experience in order to add this form of play and expression to their treatment plan. This book is a great resource to promote mind-body-spirit healing and a sense of wholeness and control over the healing process. I highly recommend adding this wonderful method of self-reflection and self-discovery to anyone’s healing game plan!"

- Debra Nicholson, Director of Community Outreach
Center For Advancement in Cancer Education

"I love it! This book is a refreshing take on the healing process. New research shows the most influential factor on our health and healing–even more than diet, smoking, or genetics- is our emotional wellbeing. Many of us grew up without the tools to support emotional healing, or feel such progress can only be achieved through long difficult therapy sessions. I love how Annette has created an easy and fun way for people to experience emotional healing. It is a must-have in every woman’s cancer-fighting arsenal!"

- Christine Horner M.D, Waking the Warrior Goddess:
Dr. Horner’s Program to Protect Against & Fight Breast Cancer

"In this lovely book, Annette Tello provides a "safe space to express and honor your thoughts and feelings". In our busy, stress- filled world, this oasis of creative time may be just the healing you need."

- Ellen Speert, ATR-BC, REAT
The California Center for Creative Renewal
