A new Cancer center in New Orleans may want to show my rocks and do a small story on me. My brothers GF runs a chemo floor there and I sent her one of my "Cancer Worrior" rocks for her desk. Well, her boos seen it then she called her boos who's like the head of the hospital. They all then looked ...at the rocks I have posted on FB and now they will be calling me sometime in the next week or two. They want to have a place on how people cope with cancer through art. Well as you already know. I NEVER painted anything in my life untill I had cancer and my Mother-in-law started me on painting rocks. I never really colored when I was a kid!! LOL... My cancer and how I cope with it is helping others get through this fight. Who would have thunk???

Life is funny sometimes

Congratulations, Brooks , that is amazing! Good for you! I have a book called "Cancer & The Art of Healing" by Marilyn Hundleby & Sherry Abbott. It is all about how art can help heal through the cancer process. It is a beautiful book.

You shouldn't be that surprised...I mean after all "Pet Rocks" were a big hit many years ago...and they weren't even painted! LOL

Good Luck and keep us posted on developments with your new 'career'.

Not knowing about your painted rocks, I thought you were talking about something else entirely! ;) LOL. This wonderful board makes my mind skip to the most outrageous things....
Congrats to you and good luck! Funny that the truth is as colorful as I had first thought, although in a different way... ;)

As they say, the Story goes on, you have come full circle. Those have helped you, and now you are helping others all with a rock. Who'd a thunk, and the circle continues. You have to be on cloud nine. I am, and we all are so proud of you. Great job! BROOKS Make it a Great Day!!

I just knew you were good. And I am one of the privileged few to have one! Yeah, for us.
Thanks again for the wonderful "rock". Every time that I see a unique shaped rock I think of you. I know you could turn it into an art piece.

Brooks, this is just too cool. You're on your way to stardom!! For someone who's never painted in their life before, you have an amazing talent!

This is great! I love your rocks, and that you've found a passion for something to help heal your spirit.

My favorite is the turtle with his head out - I have probably the world's largest collection of turtles, and yours would fit right in.

Do I see a cancer fundraiser in your future? Selling cancer warrior rocks?
