It represents the upbeat life force that has kept me going strong, despite some significant challenges.
A 20-year cancer survivor, Starting Over represents the joy of having a second chance at life. I was proud to have this work included in the opening of St. Joseph's Cancer Institute's grand opening, featuring art from many survivors and their caregivers.
