BENEFITING: WOMENS CANCER ADVOCACY RESOURCES & EDUCATION
When a woman walks into Art for Healing for the first time, she is greeted with a big smile and a warm hug. She is introduced to other women living with cancer.
She is invited to sit and close her eyes. A trained art therapist leads the group in a guided meditation to a safe, restful and creative place.
She opens her eyes and walks around tables full of inspiration--shells from the ocean, water color paint, beads, fabric, glitter, yarn...the all-important hot glue gun. She creates art. Art that expresses powerful, often hidden, emotions. Art that needs no experience or talent.
All that is required is fearless honesty and personal courage.
After reflecting, exploring, and creating, the women sit in a circle and share their art, their fears, their hopes. Afterwards, there are snacks and conversation.
She leaves feeling less alone.
Please help fund Art for Healing, a program that is free to women with cancer. Just $25 from 100 people will fund this special activity for a year. Any amount will help.
If you can give $25 or more, you have a chance to win a beautiful pair of earrings created by a ten-year cancer survivor--me!
The fundraising deadline is my birthday.
