EDI Helps a Cancer Patient to Express Extreme Feelings of Uncertainty

This moving image was created by a patient during a lung cancer support group at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Using the MyMoments app, she drew a question mark emerging from the center of a storm cloud. At the end of the question mark, she added a figure she sees as an astronaut floating without direction in space.

The image allowed this patient to express the extreme uncertainty she experiences each day of her journey with cancer – something she says is hard to do through words alone. It also resonated closely with the other members of the group, resulting in strong levels of validation and support.
