Awareness Issue 2018



A cancer diagnosis is a life-changing experience for anybody, an almost all-defining pit of despair with seemingly no way out. But art therapy has proven useful to many battling the disease, and for working artists, it can be a lifeline to recovery. For this week’s cover story, and for the Sun’s first ever Awareness Issue, Arts and Lifestyle Writer Rebecca Rose spoke with local artists who are either survivors or are currently battling cancer, and turn to the creative process for healing [12]. Also, check out some of our regular content, Spotlight [8] and School Scene [10], which aim to raise awareness during October,
which is the awareness month for both Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence.
