Cancer patients shared their stories and their talents at a Survivor Art Show held Oct. 18 and 20 at The Victory Center in Toledo.

Since 1996, The Victory Center has been providing individual and group services to support and empower cancer patients and those closest to them.

Services available to cancer patients include oncology massage, Reiki, reflexology, sound therapy and facial massage to address skin changes during treatment. TVC also offers exercise groups and support group meetings.

Artwork showcased at the exhibit was created as part of the center’s Healthy Spirit Art Therapy program, as part of the Art and Soul Retreat held at TVC by local artist, Karen O’Brien, or as an individual artistic expression from home.

Works showcased ranged from origami and still life, to sculpture and painting. Cancer survivor artists were on hand to share the stories behind their artwork.

“Art expression is one of the ways that people cope with the extraordinary changes they have gone through in their lives,” said Penny McCloskey, MEd., program director at TVC.
