Coffee-fueled storyteller and wordsmith

Judy Schwartz Haley

Judy Schwartz Haley is a health and wellness writer and educator focusing on parenting and cancer. 

Judy has a knack for translating complex diagnoses into more understandable terms.  She writes pieces that help ease the path to understanding family relationships and medical challenges, and helping families live their best lives despite these issues. Her work can be found at UVA Cancer Center, Dignity Health, Hello Humankindness, Mom it Forward, Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises, and of course, here on the blog.

Through her personal experience with her own cancer, losing a parent to cancer, and becoming a parent herself, Judy found strength, resilience, and purpose in her journal. Drawing on her decades of journaling experience Judy developed and expanded on journal techniques that help uncover, hone, and set into motion the steps needed to realize dreams. These classes have been taught at Cancer Lifeline, Harmony Hill, and soon, will be available online.
