what is the canvas?
The Canvas takes many forms. Whether it’s a gallery, a classroom, or a website, the canvas is a place to connect, to transcend the suffering and hardship of cancer, to express individual experiences, and, above all, to create.
how are we different?
Elizabeth’s Canvas is a service provider. Our goal is to provide cancer patients and survivors with the tools they need to live a life with less pain and anxiety, not to raise money for cancer research.
Currently most cancer related non-profits are focused on raising money for research, which is great! More patients are surviving and more survivors are living longer lives. But what happens next? Cancer can change your life, damage your body, and destroy your self-esteem. How are patients and survivors supposed to live complete and inspired lives once they have had cancer?
Elizabeth’s Canvas believes that the creative process can help answer these questions. Research has proven that the creative process can reduce pain and anxiety and improve self-esteem; consequently, we provide cancer patients and survivors with the tools they need to freely express themselves.
