This is Sajida’s first painting (hopefully of many) after picking up her pencil and paint after 20 years!
“Friends and Colours of Hope – In an effort to inspire hope for those facing the brave fight against cancer.
At the end of 2016 I was given the devastating news I had breast cancer. I still remember my friend giving me a big hug and telling me she’d be there to support me. Her friendship became an essential source of laughter and support for me. I certainly needed her, my cancer was aggressive, and so was my treatment. My friend was at the end of the phone day and night, constantly checking I was ok and providing emotional support and giving me hope. This painting represents friendship and positivity through the cancer journey. The glass of drink is to celebrate all the strong women out there who are going through or have won the biggest fight of our lifes “breast cancer” and to be very proud of it.“
