Nancy Morgan on Writing, Stories and Living with Serious Illness

Nancy Morgan, one of the first graduates of the Transformative Language Arts program in 2002, came to Goddard because she knew it was her calling to help people living with cancer, their families and medical providers find their voice and community through expressive writing. Coming to Goddard after losing close family and friends to cancer, Nancy followed her studied through the program and into a practicum at the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center in Washington, D.C. Her practicum led to a career and a job as Director of Arts and Humanities at the Center, where she’s worked for the last 13 years. She’s also conducted important research on the relationship of writing and health.

Nancy recently shared this wonderful video in which she discusses her path, her work, her research, and the miracles she witnesses on a regular basis through the power of the pen.
