Brushes With Cancer Applications

Twist Out Cancer, an international non-profit charitable organization that provides psychosocial support to individuals touched by cancer through creative arts programming, is now accepting applications for Inspirations (anyone touched by cancer) and Artists to take part in its seventh annual Brushes with Cancer program in Chicago.  Brushes With Cancer programs have been held all over the world including in Toronto, Montreal, and Tel Aviv.  In 2019, they will be held in Philadelphia, Detroit, Austin, and of course returning home to Chicago.  
 
Brushes with Cancer is a six month program that matches those touched by cancer with artists to create a unique piece of artwork that reflects on their journey with cancer.  This unique celebration of survivorship and hope pairs previvors, survivors, and caregivers with talented artists working in a variety of mediums.  Those touched by cancer share their ‘twist on cancer’ – stories, feelings and experiences – with the artist, which serves as the inspiration for the art.  The program culminates with a celebratory annual event and fundraiser in which the artwork is revealed for the first time. 
 
Applications for artists and anyone touched by cancer to have a unique art piece made in their honor are available at the following website and are due on Monday, April 1.  
 
Unique art pieces created for Brushes With Cancer in Chicago will be on display on Saturday, November 2 at Moonlight Studios.  More details including who will be hosting the event, ticket sales, and more will be announced at a later date.

March Of Dimes – March For Babies 2019

March of Dimes is a champion for families, fighting for the health of moms and babies in communities like yours and across the country. We believe that every baby deserves the best possible start. Unfortunately, not all babies get one.

  • In this country 1 in 10 babies is born prematurely each year.
  • Pregnancy-related death has more than doubled over the past 25 years.

The March for Babies community bands together to fight for the health of all moms and babies. Between participants, sponsors and supporters, we count upwards of 4 million people who walk, sponsor or donate to March for Babies.

When you support March for Babies, you make a statement about the world you want to live in—one in which healthy moms and strong babies are a priority for us all.

Chicagoland VisionWalk

VisionWalk Gears up for 14th Anniversary Celebration to Help End Blindness

Visually Impaired Children, Adults and Families Unite at June 2 Event to Support Sight-Restoring Research

The Foundation Fighting Blindness’ 14th annual Chicagoland VisionWalk will include hundreds of participants walking to raise funds to support gene therapy, stem call and pharmaceutical-based research that holds the promise of saving and restoring sight for people living with retinal disease. Since their start, tens of thousands of people have participated in VisionWalk events across the country raising more than $48 million to fund sight-saving research.

“VisionWalk is more than a walk; it is a community event, a positive social institution for people of all ages to bring attention to the need for sight-saving and sight-restoring therapies,” says Michelle Nash, VisionWalk Chair. “VisionWalk provides an opportunity to further drive the conversation around the need to fund early-stage human trials for treatments that could one day end blindness.”

The Chicagoland VisionWalk will take place at Busse Woods, Ned Brown Meadow on Sunday, June 2, 2019 at 9 a.m. to help raise awareness and funds for sight-saving research for retinal diseases including retinitis pigmentosa, macular degeneration, and Usher syndrome, which affect more than 10 million Americans.

The Chicagoland VisionWalk has steadily evolved into a significant fundraising mechanism aimed at funding cutting-edge studies towards preventions, treatments and cures of blinding retinal diseases. Helping fuel the surge in participants is the high interest among walkers who lead full and productive lives despite the challenges they have faced with vision loss.  Joining these participants are friends and loved ones helping to advance innovative treatments for curing blindness and looking towards a future of hope.

“Hundreds of walkers, many of whom are affected by, or have a loved one living with retinal disease, are expected at this year’s Chicagoland VisionWalk, “ said Steve Sroka, Associate Director of Events. “This year, we’re excited to feature live entertainment, bounce houses, balloon twisting, face painting, free lunch and more.
