We are grateful for the West Valley Art Council’s support and an opportunity to share the stories of those impacted by cancer through art. Local artists have donated their time, talent and their own resources spending many hours creating a visual expression of a person’s story and experience with radiation therapy. We are thankful to them and the brave participants who shared their stories.
