Coping with Cancer Clouds

Coping with Cancer Clouds was juried into the Sacred Threads Exhibition
in Herndon, VA . It will be exhibited through July 28, 2019 in the Washington DC area.

The Cancer journey from diagnosis to treatment is a roller coaster ride. It requires courage, faith, strength, support, and hope as patients also deal with anxiety and uncertainty. Counting blessings can provide a greater appreciation of life. The dragonfly signifies strength, and the wishing well anticipates a cure.

Some believe that dream catchers are a filter for dreams, trapping bad dreams in the web and allow good dreams to pass through feathers and beads while asleep.  The treasure chest holds strength and time. The outer web traps the bad dreams as cancer patients undergo treatments with chemotherapy, radiation and medications.
