The website shows the work of "Women Artists With Cancer" who have participated in Juried Art Shows run by the foundation, or have received grants from the Foundation, or have participated in Foundation Art Shows. Each artist has a number of slides on view and her personal information and website listed and linked.
Each artist also has an essay describing how her art helped her deal with her cancer. These essays are testimony to the effectiveness of art in the treatment and long-term well-being of cancer survivors.
This site is for survivors, family/friends, or any one with questions about cancer. People are welcome to share their stories for other people to view and learn from. I have an area set up for people to submit their stories to me and I will post them. I set up the site to give people a real life look at how Cancer affects peoples lives. When I was diagnosed there weren't a lot of resources out there that gave people at how Cancer affects people's lives.
I started this site to give people a place to share their stories and to provide help to those that have questions about how Cancer affects your life. When I was diagnosed with Cancer there weren't alot of resources that gave you a real life perspective on how Cancer affects your life. When I went in for my pre-op appointment my surgeon said that I was too young to have Cancer. My response was "is there an age that it is ok to have Cancer?" I named my site Too Young to Have Cancer because of this. Cancer does not discriminate based on age!

The book offers hope and encouragement to those newly diagnosed with cancer and to their loved ones. The author became her husband's caregiver in 1998, just one year after she was herself cared for while battling Guillain Barre, a rare and serious disease.
Doctors offered little hope for her husband's survival from CNS lymphoma, but Ann vowed to be the best caregiver she could be. She offers here a loving, encouraging environment to help steer readers through difficult times. The book, she says, can be a support group for anyone looking for information.
Catherine Stone had always been fearless until she was diagnosed with a truly wicked disease, non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.
Suddenly, she was wandering through a high tech world of PET Scans, spleen biopsies, and stem cell transplants, refusing to show anyone how terrified she was. The strength to overcome fear and fight her illness came from writing. Healthcare system adventures co-mingle with memories from the past that she believed might contain roadmaps to victory. Through this process of remembering and recording, Catherine completely forgot she was supposed to be conquering fear. Instead, through the typing of thousands of words she and fear made a wary peace. Down to the Marrow is a celebration of the richness that life offers. For better or worse, with strength, humor, and remembrance, the author reminds us all how the many minutes of our lives are connected and, if we trust this connection, it will hold us together through the most horrendous of times.
