Glossary of Awkward

Coming Soon to Kickstarter: Our first book!

Glossary of Awkward: a modern lexicon of all the moments that arise from cancer.

Conversations about chronic health conditions are tough, mostly because we don’t have the right words to say. But, what if there were a whole new dictionary of terms to describe those awkward moments that arise from cancer? Yeah, we thought it would be cool too, so we decided to make one.

Written by UR co-founders, Brendan McDonald and Corinne Gray, and featuring original cartoons illustrated by Simon Kneebone, Glossary of Awkward™ is the perfect gift to buy for someone touched by cancer (a whole lot better than flowers). Use it as a conversation-starter, or to connect with someone you’ve been meaning to check in on.
