How Survivor Artwork is building a community of survivors and fighters, supporters and patrons, one story at a time.
It often starts with a conversation. There's the conversation you may have with your doctor, which leads to the conversation you have with your oncologist. There are conversations with family members, conversations you have with friends and coworkers, the occasional person at the park or on the bus. We have conversations with ourselves, reminders that we are strong and not alone; that it's okay to feel how we feel: angry, sad, hopeful, determined, and most importantly, connected.
When we have these conversations and share our stories, we're often doing more than we realize. Survivor Artwork is honored to play a part in this storytelling. With our Storytelling Series, Survivor Artwork provides a space for people to share their experiences and to have cancer cell images made from their own cells. In addition to our contribution to cancer research, we donate a portion of every Storytelling art piece to the storyteller affected by cancer.
