Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, May 10, 2019 – Western Reserve Hospital has installed new art in their Community Art Showcase as part of an ongoing partnership with Collide: Cuyahoga Falls. The art show features several artists including Deanna R. Clucas, Jennifer Collins, Julie Cook, Pamela Z. Daum, Kathryn Holzheimer and David Lile.
The artists, who are all cancer survivors, provided multiple pieces of their art for the display including original photos and paintings, which are available for purchase. As these artists have been touched by cancer, so have many others in our community.
This display is dedicated to local organizations and events that continuously aid those affected by cancer, including Relay for Life Cuyahoga Falls by the American Cancer Society, Falls Cancer Club and Stewart’s Caring Place.
The American Cancer Society Relay for Life gives everyone in communities around the world the chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against the disease. Participate or support the all-day event on Saturday, June 1 at Bolich Middle School in Cuyahoga Falls.
Falls Cancer Club is a volunteer-run, independent group assisting residents who are cancer patients. New members and volunteers are always welcome, with open meetings on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at First Christian Church in Cuyahoga Falls.
Stewart’s Caring Place was founded by Mimi Surloff and a dear friend after Mimi’s husband passed away following a battle with lung cancer. Stewart’s first opened its doors in October 2004 and provides support services to individuals and families touched by cancer, free of charge.
