In addition to writing workshops, Sharon offers weekly writing prompts on her blog sites, www.writingthroughcancer.com (or .ca), originally begun as a site for men and women living with cancer, many of the prompts and their themes are equally appropriate for anyone trying to make sense of life’s hardships. A selection of these writing prompts are featured at the Greater New York City Susan B. Komen organization.
Several years ago, Sharon was diagnosed with heart failure, a progressive condition her cardiologist believes may have been the result of radiation therapy many years earlier. She was inspired by her cardiologist and engaging in the Canadian Heart Failure community to begin a new blog, one on living with heart failure and other cardiac conditions, www.heartmusings.ca.
Both blog sites offer thematic posts featuring a combination of personal reflections, poetry, reference to selected research and a number of writing suggestions related to the theme of the posts. Sharon welcomes comments and the experiences of her readers living with cancer or a heart condition.
