On the 25th November members of the Wales Cancer Partnership, which includes Cardiff University, Cancer Research UK, Tenovus Cancer Care and Wales Cancer Research Centre, came together at the Tackling Cancer Together conference in Cardiff, to highlight the cancer services and research in Wales.
The Breast Cancer Art Project, and some our art, was showcased by Cardiff University’s Dr Sonia Vougioukalou and her colleagues in the School of Healthcare Sciences. She said “People loved the art and were very humbled and grateful that you communicated such difficult experiences and let them into your world.”
It was Dr Vougioukalou’s research project on living alone with cancer, which included an art element, that motivated the creation of the Breast Cancer Art Project. So thank you Dr Vougioukalou and her colleagues for the inspiration, and for sharing our project with others.
