Increase Awareness About Breast Cancer to “EMERGE”

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.  As an artist and a full time case worker for a respite center called Interfaith House. I have assisted and counseled clients with this illness. If you’re wondering what Interfaith House is, here’s a little information. Interfaith House provides residential care for homeless men and women in medical recovery. This 64-bed center on Chicago’s West Side, offers interim housing and support to ill and injured homeless adults. Breast Cancer is one of the  illnesses that a percentage of our female population suffer from.

In dedication to our survivors that have emerged from this deadly disease I have painted a piece titled “Emerge” that will be on display at NYCH Art Gallery on Friday October 11th for the Art of the Big Shoulders exhibit.dies_in_winter1
