Cancer Survivors Turn Radiation Masks To Art
on 19 January 2018
According to Artsy, groups across the United States (and other nations) have taken radiation masks—mesh pieces molded to patents' faces in advance of chemotherapy for head and neck cancer—and turned them into art. The groups are composed of artists, many of whom have survived cancer themselves. The results are striking, and carry an array of meaning: confrontation, reclamation, survival and more. In the process, awareness is increased and money for patients in need has been raised. To learn more about the artists and organizations like Courage Unmasked, read more at Artsy.
