There have been so many studies recommending coloring books to battle depression, stress and pain. People battling cancer are having that trifecta. Several coloring book artists have developed some fun and hopefully, therapeutic ways to help during chemo sessions, nights when you can’t sleep or just when you want to relax and have a little fun.
I receive coloring books year-round from publishers so my number one drop off spot after I’ve reviewed them is to take them to the Oncology Department of our hospital. I invite you to do the same with any books you’ve bought but ended up not liking or even ones where you have colored a couple of pictures but are now done with. You have my promise they will enjoy seeing someone else’s work in the books as well.
Yes, there are some cuss word coloring books listed because F-Cancer!!
