If you or someone you care about is battling breast cancer, you know that maintaining a positive attitude is an invaluable tool for healing. Inkspirations for Breast Cancer Survivors was created by Beverly Vote, a breast cancer survivor, to help you de-stress, recharge, and renew so that you can awaken your healer within. 



Over two decades ago, Beverly Vote was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 38. With a bleak diagnosis, and few resources, she felt helpless, overwhelmed, and alone. The experience forced her to dig deep into her emotional and physical wellspring to awaken the healer within. In the fight for her life, she gave herself permission to spend less time with people who were negative and controlling and she welcomed more hope, joy, courage, and passion into each day. She soldiered through, and after two years of surgeries, treatment, and a learning curve about how she could empower herself, her prognosis improved--25 years later she remains cancer free.


In 2006, she founded Breast Cancer Wellness Magazine, an award-winning publication to empower and encourage anyone facing the challenges of breast cancer.


"We are all so unique and one healing size does not fit all," she explains. "Putting together our life after diagnosis can be confusing and overwhelming. Coloring is a great healing tool to relax and let our feelings flow without being critical or judgmental about what is being released. It doesn't matter if our coloring book is a scribbling mess, an angry expression, or a soft gentle scrawl.  What does matter is that we get into it however we want. It is during these times of reflective coloring that our dormant strengths and desires begin to emerge." 


The book features artwork from artist Ann-Margret Hovsepian paired with uplifting quotes and positive, healing affirmations specific to the breast cancer journey.  Featuring 31 pages on heavy stock, and a special lay-flat binding for easy opening and coloring, it's both a calming escape and a creative rallying cry to help people put their strongest selves forward for their most important fight.







About the authors

Beverly Vote was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992, at the age of 38. With a lack of medical knowledge and little support available, she realized she had no point of reference for healing and no role model specific to breast cancer. Her fears controlled her experiences until she learned there were ways she could indeed empower herself. In 2006, Beverly created the Breast Cancer Wellness Magazine, a quarterly, full-color publication that goes directly to thousands of breast cancer patients and survivors in all 50 states, as well as to several thousand mastectomy centers, support groups, and breast cancer centers. The magazine was the 2007 recipient of the Don Ranly Publishers Award for Best Issue in its category. In 2012, she was the recipient of the Tigerlily Foundation Transformation Award and in 2014 received the Pink Angel Honoree award.

Beverly is the author of How We Became Breast Cancer Survivors and co-author of Faces of Courage and is a contributing writer for Chicken Soup for the Breast Cancer Survivor's Soul, Dancing with Fear: Tips and Wisdom from Breast Cancer Survivors and The Pink Prayer Book. She was named 2007 Yoplait Champion, along with 24 other women and men from across the nation for their dedication in making a difference for breast cancer patients and survivors. Beverly is a Certified Healing Images Specialist. She and her husband David live at the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. They have two grown children and five granddaughters.
