Brushes with Cancer Toronto

  • The Richmond

The Mission: Brushes with Cancer provides psycho-social support to those touched by cancer to improve the quality of life for cancer patients, their family and loved ones, through a unique art experience.

The Program: Creating Unexpected Intersections
Brushes with Cancer strategically matches artists with those touched by cancer to create unique pieces of artwork reflective of their journey. Over a period of 3 months, twenty selected pairs will connect in person, via Skype, on the phone or by email. Their relationships are guided and supported by Twist Out Cancer volunteers with the intention of creating a support system for both the artist and subject. The program finishes on a high note with our signature celebratory art exhibition and reception where the artwork is revealed for the fist time.

“Telling my story in this context and through this creative process was better than any kind of therapy,” said Amy, a Brushes with Cancer participant who lost her mother to breast cancer and who is herself both a survivor of kidney cancer and a ‘previvor’ who was diagnosed with the BRCA2 gene."
