This mosaic is a celebration of rebirth after Cancer Treatment or diagnosis. For the last year, I have been collecting medicine vial caps at the Cancer Center where I work. I have been a chemotherapy nurse for over 11 years, and have learned through the years that remission isn't the only victory. Sometimes victory is controlling the disease. Sometimes it's more palliative than that. For some people, it's achieving a comfortable passage into the next life. I've been inspired by the many people I've had the pleasure to care for. This is for them. In memory of: Lennie Cote, Linda Bullock, Clara Canaan, Richard Reed, Gloria Zimmerman, Richard Stieg, Jerry Thompson. Barb McGiness. In honor of: Bethany Fay, Emmy Rickert, Chris Mund.
