Description
Winner of: 2013 Association Trends All-Media Contest, Gold Award; 2013 USA Best Book Award, Women's Issues; 2012 Association Trends All-Media Contest; Finalist: 2013 USA Best Book Award, Health-Cancer; 2012 Next Generation Indie Excellence Book Award, Women's Issues ------ A visual diary of cancer treatment, Rad Art is one woman's fully realized story of how she used the process of painting to help her cope with her disease and recovery. Filled with beautiful, evocative artwork, the book presents the emotional course of a cancer patient through paintings she created each day after undergoing radiation therapy. The 33 paintings are arranged chronologically--from the first to the last day of her treatment--and include accompanying text explaining her mood and feelings at the time. While respecting each person's unique experience, artist and cancer survivor Sally Loughridge has created a resource to encourage expression, sharing, and connection among cancer patients and their loved ones.
