About BCCR’s Voices & Visions
Voices & Visions is an exciting program that gives those who have received a diagnosis of breast cancer or gynecologic cancer an opportunity to explore and express their feelings through writing. This warm and supportive group is led by a professional, sensitive instructor. Writing has proven to be very therapeutic for cancer survivors. No previous writing experience necessary!
 
Additional information is also available on BCCR’s website here.
