The Program

Brushes with Cancer 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 their 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.
