Who We Are
The Art of Life is passionate about GIVING HOPE to those impacted by cancer. We will empower cancer survivors and their families to creatively share their story.
What We Do
The Art of Life Cancer Foundation is making a profound impact upon the Central Valley by giving hope to those impacted by cancer. Recognizing that the lifetime probability of developing cancer is 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women, the effects of cancer can be seen and felt within the workplace, school, family tree, and even within one’s own home. Although we have incredible cancer care in the Valley, the Art of Life is dedicated to filling the void of offering individual and personal support that allows people to process their emotions, find camaraderie and know that they are not alone.
Cancer demands more than just physical treatment, as the emotional and social impacts upon one’s life are significant. While each person’s journey is unique, the use of creative expression evokes a sense of respite, discovery, inspiration, and purpose, so that while circumstances may or may not change, one’s attitude and outlook on life can. The Art of Life’s use of creative expression ranges from painting to mosaic and glass art, music, gardening, fitness, dance, and more. Together we will celebrate life and embrace each moment we are given.
