Virtual Twistshop with Living Beyond Breast Cancer

Living Beyond Breast Cancer and Twist Out Cancer communities collaborate for an evening of art-making, discussion and connection. Join Twistshop facilitator Mignon Dupepe, as we use dendrochronology or tree ring dating, tree of life and art practices to illustrate a personal narrative of our cancer experience. No prior artistic skills required to participate in this experience-just an interest in using art processes and discussion for expression, growth, and connection.

Art materials to be considered for using with this workshop include:

  • Plain heavy paper/watercolor paper
  • Colorful markers
  • Color pencils
  • Crayons
  • Pastels
  • Watercolor paints/paint brushes/water
  • Paper towels/Q-tips for blending pastels

Living Beyond Breast Cancer is a national nonprofit organization that seeks to create a world that understands there is more than one way to have breast cancer. To fulfill our mission of providing trusted information and a community of support, we offer on-demand emotional, practical, and evidence-based content that is meaningful to those newly diagnosed, in treatment, post-treatment, and living with metastatic disease.

For 30 years, Living Beyond Breast Cancer has imparted wisdom and connection via conferences, events, a peer-to-peer helpline, and more. Today, we remain committed to creating a culture of acceptance—where sharing the diversity of the lived experience of breast cancer fosters self-advocacy and hope.
