What is your favorite Caymanian ‘ting?’

Cancer survivors are expressing their favorite ‘tings’ through art.

It’s all a part of the Cancer Society’s art therapy class, where cancer survivors use a variety of mediums to create works of art.

Of course, the art classes are also a great opportunity for survivors to share their experiences with each other in a supportive environment.

“We learn from each other, we learn from each other’s experience and from our artwork that we are doing,” said budding artist and cancer survivor Phyllis White-Leachman. “We, we encourage each other.”

At first, some of the artists were skeptical of their ability, but their efforts so far have paid off, with beautiful results.
