Stationery: Your Ally for Navigating Breast Cancer

Category: General

At Gallery Leather, we believe in giving back to our community. October is breast cancer awareness month. This is why we’re donating 5% of your purchase to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation through October 31, 2022. We know it’s likely that you or someone close to you has been affected by this disease.

Going through cancer can involve keeping track of many moving parts, including appointments, medications, and more. Here are some ways that stationery as an ally for navigating breast cancer can help you stay organized and relieve stress during this time.

1. Planners

We offer planners in a wide variety of formats and designs to meet your schedule. These include include weekly and monthly formats, and formats with time slots to make scheduling easier. With all the details you could hope for, we craft our planners using time-tested bookmaking techniques and quality materials.

Many breast cancer patients have to attend at least three months of treatment in addition to any surgeries or follow-up appointments needed. Keeping track of them can be tricky, and putting them down on paper can help.

2. Journals

Information on how medications are distributed often needs to be shared with a team of healthcare professionals. Writing this information down can help you accurately share this information with your entire medical support team. To help you share this information, we offer journals portable enough to bring with you to appointments.

In addition to keeping records, journaling can be a supportive part of healing. A private journal can be a place to work through stress, anger, fear, and other difficult emotions cancer can raise. Getting feelings on paper can reduce anxiety and help bring a sense of calm to your day. It can also be a place to celebrate good days, important milestones, and progress in healing. If a therapist is supporting you, notes from a journal can be a good way to start important conversations.

One satisfied customer had this to say about their journals:

“I have a whole shelf full. I have tried many journals. This is by far the best. Sturdy, good line spacing, attractive, and well made. I have become a loyal customer.”

3. Address Books

You or your loved on may have a complex team of caregivers. You may need to be able to reach them at a moment’s notice for questions and updates about treatment, logistics, and the healing process.

Use one of Gallery Leather’s Address Books to collect and organize all of your care team’s contact information. Keeping this information right at your fingertips helps you stay in touch. Our pocket address books hold up to 400 records while still being compact enough to fit in your purse or pocket.

4. Personalized Products

Navigating breast cancer is about so much more than pink. Your treatment plan and needs are unique to you, and there’s no reason your tools can’t be the same. Finding ways of expressing yourself can be uplifting and empowering. Many planners and journals come in a rainbow of colors and can be personalized to fit your taste and personality.

Also, Gallery Leather offers the option to customize your purchase with a pink ribbon for $5, 100% of which goes to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. We hope this helps provide a tangible way of standing in solidarity with those impacted by this disease.

Whether you are a caregiver or a patient, we want to help you with tools for organization and awareness. Stationery can be your ally for navigating breast cancer. This month and beyond, you also have the opportunity to take action in helping others affected by this disease.
