To say that I am excited is a complete understatement.

I am overjoyed to be donating portions from your sales towards Tracy’s Kids- A pediatric art therapy program for children coping with the emotional stress and trauma of cancer and its treatment.

In a very fundamental way, creative work is tied to our sense of being vital, alive and healthy. Physical illness brings suffering not only in the body, but also in the mind and spirit. Undergoing medical tests and procedures can be dehumanizing, especially for children, who may not be able to understand the healing intent behind the scans, needles and medicines.

Art Therapy allows young patients to do creative work within the limitations imposed by their illness, restoring a sense of self and wholeness. Getting well is hard work, and recovery may take a long time. Experiencing oneself as a creator within the treatment setting changes how young patients see themselves: they become active partners in the work of getting well, not just passive patients who can only take medicine and wait.”
