Bio:: It is an honor and a great pleasure for Dianne and me to support the
3rd Annual ArtCAN, a fundraising event for pancreatic cancer to benefit
research at Emory University and Johns Hopkins. Dianne and I both have lost family members and loved ones to cancer, and we know firsthand the
incredible pain and sorrow inflicted on patients, their families, and their
friends by this terrible disease. Pancreatic cancer in particular is one of the
deadliest cancers with one of the highest mortality rates for both men and
women, so all funds raised for additional research are for a very worthy cause. The approach taken by ArtCAN is powerful and inspiring in not only
helping educate how important art can be in positively impacting those with
cancer, but also in being a draw to help raise awareness and resources from the community to support cancer research. The artists assembled for this event are extremely talented and personally aware of the life altering changes this disease brings both to patients and their loved ones.
I wish you well as you enjoy what will be an inspiring evening to
continue the fight for cancer research funding.
ArtCAN is a unique and original fund raising event that features a fine art auction and original performances from selected acclaimed performing and visual artists from around the world who have been closely affected by cancer.
