Art Infusion with Project Pink


Last September 11 and 12, the Ruth Foundation partnered with Project Pink for Art Infusion—a two day painting workshop participated in by cancer survivors. The workshop, held at the Asian Hospital, was led by Veronica Solano, a graphic designer and teacher at the De La Salle College of St. Beniled School of Design and the Arts. Ms. Solano was assisted by TRF’s resident artist, Nurse Emma. Painting, like other creative endeavors, can be therapeutic for people who live with the challenges of cancer. At the workshop Solano said that the paintings of cancer patients are “part of themselves, their feelings, their insights…while on the journey of fighting and conquering cancer.” The paintings created during the workshop were presented at an exhibit at the Asian Hospital in October, to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Proceeds of the sales from the exhibit went to supporting cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.
