A Gift Worth Waiting For

A Gift Worth Waiting For

Several years ago when Purvi and I met at Family House across the street from the old UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, I truly had no idea of the wonderful gift that would come from that one, brief encounter. I was a newer art therapist to the hospital still learning the ropes of running a program. I did not realize at the time that the newfound relationship with Kids & Art would eventually lead to a wonderful partnership supporting our out-patient clinics at Mission Bay.

Hope in Art

Hope in Art

I am very lucky to be a cancer survivor. A lot has changed for me from those early, sickly days. I’m now 16, in high school, and am an active athlete. I played club soccer for many years, eventually becoming captain of a team which traveled to Sweden for an international tournament. I now play water polo for a club and for Aragon High School. I also enjoy skiing, using my new drivers license and hanging out with friends. I like sleeping in late, being on my cell phone and don’t like doing homework: in other words, I’m now a typical teenager.

Kids & Art in Vietnam

Kids & Art in Vietnam

I recently had the honor of representing Kids & Art in a collaboration with the “Paint It On” project in DaNang, Vietnam. I worked with a non-profit organization One Painting-Many Hopes. The organization is comprised of student volunteers, mostly college students, who are supporting cancer patients in the DaNang Cancer Hospital. The entire hospital is dedicated to oncology treatment for people from all over the central area of Vietnam, caring for both pediatric and adults patients.
