The Victory Center/Toledo, which provides psycho-social support for cancer patients and their caregivers, held a two-day exhibit in January 2018, featuring the art of cancer survivors. I had three paintings in this moving, joyful show, the first cancer-related event I’ve been able to participate in during my 10-year recovery from ovarian cancer.
