Artists are strategically matched with an inspiration – someone who has been touched by cancer, which includes survivors, previvors, caregivers and supporters. Over a period of 4-6 months, the artist will work with their inspiration to create a unique piece of artwork that is reflective of their journey with cancer. The program culminates in an evening of survivorship, hope and inspiration where the art is auctioned off.
