Breast Cancer Survivors Heal Through Art

Posted: Updated:

Some local breast cancer survivors have created works of art based on self-discovery and their lessons learned.

Several canvasses will be on display as a way to raise money for other breast cancer victims.

We spoke with one survivor who is two years in remission who says art has helped her heal.

"This too shall pass you do get through it and being able to put it in art form is very soothing for the soul," says Laronda Etheridge.

Sharon Dimattia has worked with several survivors at Renown through their Healing Arts program. She sees firsthand how artwork helps them heal. "We need to celebrate these stories.

The ART Inside Breast Cancer show will be at the Sierra Arts Gallery this Saturday at 7:30pm.

There will be music, art, appetizers and wine. Donations will go directly to Renown's breast cancer patients.
