Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation Brushes with Cancer
A Private Licensed Brushes with Cancer Program
The Program

Brushes with Cancer is a program of Twist Out Cancer that strategically matches artists with individuals touched by cancer (inspirations). Over 6 months, the artist and inspirations work together to build a relationship built on mutual understanding and trust. The artist creates a unique work of art that is reflective of the inspiration’s journey with cancer.
