Take a peek at what my daughter's friend made from my radiation mask.

Way to GO Marie!

Best looking mask I've seen..., or smelt.

now that's the best looking "after mask" that I've ever seen.....truly!  Amazing how she took something that so damned ugly, and made it into something you can actually hang on your wall and not scare people.

I like it!!

Fitting end to the scary one.  I still get anxious when I see one and I know that is one.


35 Lorazapams Later I can say, nice job!

What nice way to make something so ugly look so beautiful! That truly is an extreme makeover! If I'd been that creative maybe I'd have been more open to keeping my mask. I couldn't wait to say goodbye to that hunk of junk! But what you have is beautiful.
Thanks for sharing.

I feel/felt the same way Billie . I showed it to my Husband and my Daughter and then got rid of it . Every time I saw it I had to remember that I might still have the big C.

This is very inventive.  It's like taking a frown and turning it upside down to make a smile !  Thanks for sharing !    Katie

Makes me smile.  John has his mask in his man cave in the basement and everytime I see it I cringe. It just scares me for some reason. Plus it makes me feel bad knowing what all he has gone through.

I wouldn't have know it was a mask by looking at it. My mask will have a less than beautiful ending after all is said and done ;)

I like how it has been adorned and reflects a positive image. Many other comments seem to reflect the darker and negative. Of course, running the rad "gaunlet, is for most, the worst part of the journey, I have created mental imagery more reflective of the bouquet. This is the treatment that is KILLING the f...ng caner. That is a GOOD thing. Maybe it will make getting through the rads and post tx rough road a more pleasant journey. don

I can't take any of the credit. Marie is a great artist.
And..even after all the work she did, I STILL wanted her to keep the mask, not ready to have it close...

Here is another sample of her work.

I certainly admire (or is it jealous??) people with talent.


My only question.......where's the goat on the mask???

I left mine behind.  For what it cost, I guess I should have taken it......My mom wanted me to send it to her in GA, to paint up and "artsify"... but I just didn't want it "following me" home.   What strength it takes for your daughter to work on something that represents your family's painful journey.  I hope it was cathartic for all of you!
