Get well cal­en­dar

Good - - CALENDAR -

Colour Me Well is a well­ness cal­en­dar kit de­signed to sup­port can­cer pa­tients to cre­atively jour­nal their treat­ment ex­pe­ri­ence. The kit con­tains a cal­en­dar tem­plate, coloured pencils and a sharp­ener. There are kits for adult pa­tients as well as chil­dren. The colour­ing cal­en­dar has been cre­ated by Aus­tralian Sharon Stone, who used the tech­nique of colour­ing in squares on a cal­en­dar dur­ing treat­ment for breast can­cer. Day by day it be­came a re­flec­tion of how she felt. “These small, sim­ple, colour­ful de­signs some­how made me feel like I had achieved some­thing,” says Stone. “When I had fin­ished treat­ment, I couldn’t be­lieve how much these sim­ple draw­ings had con­trib­uted to stay­ing pos­i­tive through­out a tough time.”
