Free Cancer Awareness Coloring Bundle
Since it’s breast cancer awareness month, it seems an appropriate time to share these free coloring pages which I am dedicating to all those fighting cancer in some way—the victims, the survivors, the caregivers, and all who have been affected by cancer in some way.

Fighting Cancer: Our Common Goal
Get a Bundle of Free Coloring Pages Dedicated to the Fight Against Cancer
Since it’s breast cancer awareness month, it seems an appropriate time to share these free coloring pages which I am dedicating to all those fighting cancer in some way—the victims, the survivors, the caregivers, and all who have been affected by cancer in some way. The bundle includes three designs, with two provided in both black and white versions. I share the story behind these pages below.
Give Hope Persevere
The first page was inspired by Robin Nelson, who was the third person to complete my Feel Good Challenge and color all 30 pages from OrnaMENTALs Feel Good Words. Her prize was a custom page designed around the words of her choosing. Here is what she wrote to me after having time to think about what words she wanted to choose for her custom coloring page:
“Things that mean the most to me are giving of myself – I recently spent 5 plus years co-running a campaign to raise money and build a hospice house for our community here. But I also believe that to have Hope and Persevere are two things that we must have to keep our spirits up throughout life. So, GIVE, HOPE and PERSEVERE are my three personal pillars. Can you do anything with any of those?”
Robin’s use of the word ‘pillars’ resonated with me and I thought it would be a cool thing to draw for a coloring page. I assigned the words ‘give’ and ‘hope’ to each of the pillars, and had them holding up the crossbeam at the top representing perseverance. Between the giving, hoping, and persevering, we all look forward to producing something better from our efforts, so between those sturdy pillars, the scene looks out to a small glimpse of paradise with a cobblestone path leading through flowers and hills and into a magnificent sunrise beyond.
A Common Goal
The next page is a remix from a previously untitled design which originally appeared in MiniMENTALs. I admit it wasn’t created with cancer awareness in mind, but I recently saw a Facebook post where someone had shared their colored version, and another person commented about being a breast cancer survivor. That inspired me to take another look at that design and rework it into what is now titled “A Common Goal.” The remix appears in my newest book OrnaMENTALs Lights Out. I’m also including the original version of this design from MiniMENTALs On-the-Go Coloring Book.
Thank you Jennifer for inspiring the remix of this design. Click the picture for her coloring book reviews Facebook page and give it a like.
Yes, it’s personal. I don’t know that there is a person alive who hasn’t been affected by cancer in some way. My father-in-law lost the battle with pancreatic cancer several years ago, and my own father is currently struggling with a recurrence of prostate cancer. I realize coloring pages can’t make a significant impact against cancer, but if they help just one person deal with the pain, grief, anger, or other emotions surrounding this horrible disease, then it’s worth doing. I hope you’ll share your coloring of these pages in the comments section below.
Send Hope and Hugs Across the Miles
If you are looking for another way to bring a smile to the face of someone fighting cancer or other chronic illness, check out my friend’s charity project, Hope and Hugs. Hope and Hugs allows you to send a hand-curated box or basket of comforting essentials to anyone battling a chronic illness while at the same time contributing to cancer research.
