About the Edition

This qualitative research examines perspectives of the links among environment, health, and healing for women living with breast cancer in the Greater Toronto Area. Semi-structured, in-depth interviews are used to obtain information about ways in which breast cancer survivors access and create landscapes of healing within their day-to-day lives. Through this research, certain environments are considered to possess greater significance than others for contributing to physical, emotional and mental health and healing, especially when sick. Those landscapes with which women interact on a daily basis appear to be most important to recovery from illness. The research also demonstrates that while many women are successfully able to find landscapes that are conducive to recovery from breast cancer, others face multiple challenges related to social and economic barriers, and the impact of the illness itself. Further research exploring healing properties of landscapes for people with illness is needed to expand the understanding of connections between health and place.
