Artist’s Statement: I dedicate this project to my sister and my son - with the use of pink for breast cancer awareness and the use of pearl for multiple sclerosis. Simply believe in life, love and yourself. I believe in you. I admire your strength and with that you give me my strength. One day with the support of so many, these diseases will have a cure. The center roses represent the three years since I, myself, was first diagnosed with breast cancer. I believe with the support of all the concerned groups that this disease will no longer be the sentence we all hear when we are told “you have breast cancer”. Simply Believe!
