Brushes with Cancer Chicago

The Program

Brushes with Cancer is a program of Twist Out Cancer that strategically matches artists with individuals touched by cancer (inspirations). Over a period of 4-6 months, the artist and inspirations work together to build a relationship built on mutual understanding and trust. The artist creates a unique work of art that is reflective of the inspiration’s journey with cancer. The program culminates in an evening of survivorship, hope and inspiration where the art is auctioned off with all proceeds benefiting the mission and work of Twist Out Cancer.
