Every Scar Tells A Story


The ScART Gallery in our hospital’s Berger Lobby recently celebrated our scArtist’s inspirational designs and stories of their cancer journey and scars. ScART, or scar art, is an abstract painting process where cancer survivors sketch their scars from cancer treatment on canvas, then turn the drawing into an interpretive painting.

As treacherous as cancer treatment is, resuming the routines of work and family life after completing treatment can be equally difficult. Participants are encouraged to embrace their scars by turning them into beautiful pieces of abstract art.

While the final product is both beautiful and meaningful, the shared experience among cancer survivors can be therapeutic and spiritually uplifting. Congratulations to all our artists for as they continue their journey.
