The event, designed to help people affected by cancer cope with the emotional side of the disease, was open to patients, survivors, families, caregivers and clinicians. “Therapeutic art is an excellent way for patients, survivors and families to cope with the trauma of cancer diagnosis,” says Teri Hoenemeyer, Ph.D., director of Education and Support Services at the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center. “We’re really excited to be able to share this opportunity as a way to honor a loved one, a friend or a patient, or just to celebrate life.” Sponsored by Lily Oncology on Canvas, UAB Arts in Medicine and the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center, this event honored all who are affected by cancer. The finished colorful artwork will be on display in different clinical areas at UAB. # K N O W U A B C C C • U A B . E D U / C A N C E R 31
