Rapides Cancer Center Hosts Exhibit

Posted:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) Works from the Lilly Oncology on Canvas: Expressions of a Cancer Journey exhibit are on display in the Rapides Cancer Center this week.

The traveling exhibit features more than ten pieces of art created by those affected by cancer.

The competition is designed to provide an artistic outlet for those battling cancer.

Leaders from the Rapides Cancer Center say the exhibit has made a positive impact on cancer center visitors.

"Especially our cancer patients and their families can relate to some of the emotions experienced and dramatized by the photos and pictures. It has allowed them I think the chance to get in touch with some of their feelings as well and to think about maybe putting that into an art project themselves," said Karen Hathorn.

The exhibits last day for public viewing is Friday August 16th.
