Brushes With Cancer is an evening that celebrates survivorship and hope through art, music and storytelling. Over the next few months, survivors will be asked to share their “Twist On Cancer,” (lessons learned, fighting strategies and new perspectives) with our online community of support. Their ‘twists’ will serve as inspiration for local and international artists to create unique pieces of art. The art will be auctioned online and in person at the Twist With An Artist Benefit taking place on April 17, 2013 at Floating World Gallery in Chicago.
The Benefit: At the event, participating survivors will have the opportunity to share their Twist on Cancer, and the artists they inspire will discuss their creative processes and reveal their final works of art. All proceeds will go directly to the Twist community.
Inspirational stories of hope will be provided by Jenna Benn, Founder of Twist Out Cancer Jonny Imerman, Founder of Imerman’s Angels
Ethan Zohn, Two Time Cancer Survivor and Winner of Survivor Africa
