Your Good Medicine

What is the Good Medicine Project?

It Was Created From the Heart and Out of Necessity

I always thought that if I ever had cancer, my life would be filled with pain and sadness. So, in 2007, when I found a lump and was diagnosed with breast cancer, I braced for the suffering ahead. 

I waited, but the suffering never came.  Instead, I almost always felt happy.  I floated in the warmth of  endless kindnesses from friends, family, colleagues and community.  Visits, food, notes, walks, phone calls, texts, gifts, books, flowers, funny hats… every single day for months someone reached out in a loving way. 

 It was a master class in kindness!

It was an important lesson, because it prepared me for the question I’ve been asked countless times since.  It starts like this: “My friend …neighbor … child’s teacher … roommate … aunt … niece … colleague has just been diagnosed with breast cancer! ”  Then, “How can I help her?” 

 The Good Medicine Project is an attempt to answer that question.  We hope you find it useful!
