Cancer knocks on many doors. For those who have to open the door, these inspirational cards will help provide the insights to navigate the fear, uncertainty, and treatment processes.
For a patient: These cards offer simple support by "being" without blame or judgment. Use it as a start to the day, an end-of-day reflection, or anytime to interrupt a wayward thought of blame or self-doubt.
For the Caregiver/Friend or anyone else:
Cancer doesn't discriminate. If it's you, a loved one, a friend, or a colleague, these cards offer some insightful tools to help heal the mind and body
Liz - we received your absolutely beautiful and inspiring cards in the mail last night! I was going to start skimming through a couple of cards and coming back to revisit one at a time. Change of course! I couldn’t stop reading them so I got through the whole deck of cards. Amazing!!! The brilliant and often whimsical drawings, the creative visualizations that clearly inspired them, and the simple but powerful messaging has left such a positive impact on me! I can’t wait until Neal takes a peek at them! Thank you SO much!!! Regardless of a diagnosis or not, these are truly life-affirming!
I have received The Cancer Courage Card deck and am delighted with it. Not only is it gorgeous, but it is healing and uplifting as well. I am not a cancer patient, caretaker, or survivor, yet I still see the wonder, joy, and use of this deck. I bought it for a friend who I want to support lovingly. As a meditation teacher, I love reading the affirmations, thinking about the journaling prompts, and looking at the image for inspiration. The artwork feels fresh, authentic, and unique. I have looked up other artwork by Liz. I will keep this website “in my back pocket” if I need a gift for someone else. Thanks, Liz, for creating such a beautiful and helpful product!
"As a cancer survivor, this amazing work of art and prose is the inspiration I wish I would have had when I was diagnosed with and then went through treatment for breast cancer. Just feeling the glossy cards in your hands and looking at the gorgeous, colorful images is healing. Combine the wonderful art with Liz Carren's spot-on words of encouragement -- learned through her own cancer journey -- and you have a powerful, yet loving tool that any cancer patient (or their loved ones) will greatly benefit from. A true gift from the artist/survivor to others in any stage of their cancer journey."
My goal is to have entities in the cancer business purchase these decks to hand out to the people who need them. Let's work together and help as many people as possible! "Life Affirming deck."
"Hi Liz...OMG!!! Just completely BLOWN AWAY!! Your cards are even better than I knew they were going to be!! What a journey, my friend. You should be so very proud of yourself...for walking this journey...for documenting it...and for making these cards that will absolutely help others as they walk their own!! I just went through each and every card...AND...Jill is sitting there engrossed...and reading every word...studying every picture...she is greatly impressed...AND TOUCHED (I can tell!!)
Thank you for being you...for having the courage to share from your soul!!! I am so happy we met...and so happy to receive your cards!!!
I just received the cards yesterday, and they are absolutely beautiful! I love your incredible artwork and I also really liked the packaging too!
Have questions? Ask me!
Know someone touched by cancer? Don't know what to say to them? These cards can be your perfect start. Learn about the experience and understand it all in a new light and way. The images are all original images, created from the time of my diagnosis thru my year and into healing.
Liz (Elizabeth) Carren is an artist who uses her art for healing.
Her cancer diagnosis in 2020 ignited a whole new path for her. Words alone were not what she was looking for to share and explain the cancer experience to her family and friends. She wanted others to see and feel cancer in her artwork. She began creating and writing in a new realm. Creativity and visualizations became the core of the paintings, and she used them to help heal herself. Her work authentically connects with her audience, sharing what makes us vulnerable and human.
Liz Carren, an artist, created these card deck(s) so others could see, feel, and understand cancer differently. To empower, guide, validate, and
prompt positive stimulation to your brain - to see your illness in a way that you too can help heal yourself.
The first deck, the cancer process and the journey, is ready to go as a digital version or a beautifully printed set to carry with you. Deck two is in the making - it will be a deck about the year afterward - as a survivor - and is tentatively titled - What's in your Head"
