Overview

"Finally! A book featuring 86 pages containing full color artwork prescribed to ease the cancer patient from the bedside to the coffee table. A whimsical collection of 115 traditional poems and songs rewritten to empower, entertain, comfort, and inspire those looking for creative healing from cancer and other chronic illnesses. In January of 2021, Iris Jacobs was diagnosed with stage III breast cancer. Determined that the disease would not be her life's final chapter, Iris pursued healing through changing her diet, her lifestyle, and her entire attitude about living. Above all, she began to create. She started rewriting nursery rhymes, turning ""Mary Had a Little Lamb"" into ""Leftie Had a Little Lump."" She then moved on to Christmas carols: ""The Twelve Months of Treatment,"" ""What Growth Is This?"" and more. Folk songs and jazz standards followed. Eventually she began painting accompanying art with oil and canvas. Iris channeled all her energy into healing creativity. Thanks to chemotherapy, surgeries, radiation, and her radical zest for life, she reaped the fruits of her labors in September 2021: No evidence of disease. Now in her second year of complete remission, Iris publishes her poems, songs, and stunning art in The Breast Cancer Garden of Verses. The Breast Cancer Garden of Verses contains poems, song lyrics, and artwork that follow Iris Jacobs through her journey from diagnosis to complete healing. This collection contains pieces that are humorous, uplifting, touching, and empowering. Through her choice of source material, Iris Jacobs engages the children within all of us, comforting them, challenging them, and trusting them. The Breast Cancer Garden of Verses will resonate with those who are living with cancers and other chronic illnesses. Iris Baldwin's work embodies her commitment to recovery, laughter, authenticity, breast cancer awareness advocacy, and playful creativity. Readers with chronic conditions looking for a fresh outlook, set to a familiar tune, will find The Breast Cancer Garden of Verses to be a genuine treasure."
