The three-day exhibition will include an in-depth look into how cancer survivors have found meaning in their radiation masks through art.

The exhibition will also provide members of the public access to artists on opening night; revealing the countless ways in which patients and artists have worked together to take a source of pain and turn it into an artwork by empowering patients in remission to take something gloomy and turn it into something powerful.

Throat cancer survivor, ambassador for Targeting Cancer and journalist Julie McCrossin will be there on the opening night to celebrate her 3rd anniversary of beating cancer than by sharing how she dealt with the highs and lows as well as how she managed to turn a bland and morbid piece of plastic into an object of beauty and meaning.
