Adventure is a resilience-building remedy. Patient Ahead collects and curates an array of adventure experiences for cancer patients and their supporters to foster resilience, defeat fear and be just plain fun.  It is a great remedy. You can share your exploit or activity with us directly on our Facebook Page  or link with us on Social Media for all to see.  What kind of adventures?  Think indoor or outdoor. Think travel, hikes, photos, videos, exercise and workout programs, biking, concerts, camping etc. You can go big or go small!

Art of all types is critical to patient support.  So, The Cancer Arts Initiative collects, curates and presents an array of creative arts for cancer patients and their supporters.  For example, few doubt that music does not help to build resilience, calm anxiety and enthuse. Creative arts can also include photos, video, paint, culinary arts, dance and more.  You can share your creative art with us directly on our Facebook Page  or link with us on Social Media for all to see.

How Can Creative Arts Fight Cancer?

There are all kinds of art.  Music, painting, photography, dance and more. But all can help heal or deal with a challenge.  When you are involved in art you are creating or “connecting the dots” of a given situation and often discovering new dots that lead to an innovative perspective, a meditative distraction or a therapeutic value. Art is a process you do for yourself. It can be done alone or with friends, indoors or outdoors.  Go ahead.  Be creative.  Pick an artistic endeavor of interest.  Share your art. Ask another to join you.  You’ll be surprised at the potential within you.

Remember

Culunary Arts is an Art

It’s also a major topic of adventurer enthusiasts, artists and particularly cancer patients!  For us, food, nutrition, attitude and ambitions sync-up when they are planned and prepared just right.  Related, exercise adventurists depend on the right nutrition as part of their rocket-fuel.  So does everyone else, really, but we tend not to take it seriously.  Share your art.

Nice video from Yuma, Arizona explaining the link-up of art, cancer and their value together.  Funny how an initial interest can turn into a hobby.  The process here seems to overpower some challenges.

Dance Therapy: Where the Rubber Meets the Road and Healing is Jump-Started

Never ceases to surprise.  These are mostly children in this video but needless to say this also works for adults.  The broad reach of the process on many aspects of the body and mind is … mind-blowing.

Music Therapy Works for Children, Adults and the Clinical Staff
