ART FOR THE SOUL …with Val & Rolanda Engstrom
Val is a 12 year survivor of tonsil cancer, treated at UCI and is doing quite well. He and his wife, Rolanda, started art classes at UCI almost 8 years ago and offer free art classes to cancer patients twice monthly. They tailor their classes to meet the emotional needs of the patients and offer their love and support through the art they and the patients create together. It is really a wonderful program. They are a really loving, caring people who do this voluntarily.
Come join Val & Rolanda as they provide your soul with some art as they offer a hands-on experience at the next Head & Neck Support Group meeting…..Bring a friend, all are welcome!
ALL ARE WELCOME!
On the first Saturday morning of every month, HNC patients and survivors gather, chat, share personal stories/experiences and gather helpful information from others. They are of different ages, gender and race, and accompanied by family, caregivers, and/or friends. But they all have one thing in common – they or a family member have been diagnosed with Head & Neck Cancer (HNC). They are here to participate in the Head & Neck Patient Support Group at USC, to encourage and to be encouraged.
Additionally, many individuals from diverse medical and healing disciplines have taken time from their hectic schedules to join in. Doctor, Nurse, Speech Therapist, Dietitian, Journalist, Medical Office Specialist, Yoga Therapist, Research Scientist, Art Therapist, Medical Supply Vendor, Pharmacist, and Professor are just some of the “titles” that have joined our meetings as active participants.
