Originally I was just goung to email this to Claudia and encourage her to compete. But the artwork on the website waqs so moving to me (all done by cancer patients, caregivers, & oncology medical staff, all with a "cancer journey' theme) that I wanted to encourage you all to pop in and see the artwork: http://www.lillyoncologyoncanvas.com/Pages/Index.aspx

and then, this is for Claudia & any other artists within our group:

I skimmed through one of the books from this project while waiting for brachytherapy yesterday at the Pluta Cancer Center in Rochester, NY. I was thinking at the time that I would love a copy of the book so I could spend more time looking at it and reading what the artists had to say. Thanks for telling us more about the project.
