Journal writing can be a form of self-care for caregivers at any stage of their
caregiving journey. Donna Fitzgerald, a former caregiver, learned the value of
writing and journaling to develop self-awareness. She will explain how journaling can
enlighten and enrich our purpose and meaning. In this webinar, Donna will also share
how journaling can be a path to healing and rediscovering oneself. You will have a
chance to practice journaling during this session, so have your pen and paper ready!
Two winners will be chosen from a random draw of entries to win Donna’s journaling
workbook. Details of the draw will be provided during the webinar.
After being a caregiver to her late husband for six years as he battled ALS and

Chapter of the ALS Society, the Neuromuscular Clinic in Kingston, and Hospice
Kingston. She received the 2007 – 2008 Volunteer Excellence Award from ALS
Donna is the co-author of Creative Healing Through Transformation: Conversation
