It’s Fall Y’All! We broke out all the hits for our October Heroes Art Session with our childhood cancer hero families. Taking center stage was a family favorite, pumpkin painting! Sweet Charlotte knew exactly how to paint her pumpkin. Like a black cat to match her Halloween costume. Sydney and Tay spent time painting the perfect pumpkin. The littles of the group, Matthew and Ahmod, slapped on some paint and then ran off!

Nancy Jacey and her crew have a concept for a collaborative art piece. They will auction it off at the 12th Annual Heroes Art Ball (Save The Date: May 5, 2023). From the looks of it, the painting will be a colorful glittery masterpiece.

The sweet spot was the caramel candy apples. Alvion’s mom, Shaqueenia is a pro at creating yummy treats! The next table over, Patricia helped the kids “paint” Halloween cookies. Catherine, at Holland Baking Company, made the cookies for our childhood cancer hero families.

It was the perfect Fall afternoon.

Our Heroes Art Sessions provide a supportive environment in which childhood cancer heroes and their siblings can make art and build community with other hero families. At the sessions, you feel a collective sense of healing by creating and being together. We are grateful to Visual Arts Center for giving us the space for an open studio. And to our donors who allow the Heroes Art Sessions to happen at no cost to our families.
