Twist Out Cancer provides psychosocial support to previvors, survivors & caregivers through creative arts programming which serves as a mechanism for healing.
Brushes with Cancer 2024 Applications are NOW OPEN
Our Brushes with Cancer program matches individuals touched by cancer (Inspirations) with Artists to create a unique piece of artwork that reflects their personal journey with cancer. Those touched by cancer share their ‘twist on cancer’—stories, feelings, and experiences with the Artist, which serves as the inspiration for the art.
Apply to our transformative program as an Inspiration or Artist.
