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.

Weekly Poll
What'd you make of the county's decision to close beaches for the Fourth of July weekend?

It was sensible since counties to the south closed their beaches.
I was OK with it. I set off fireworks at home instead.
It was ridiculous. The restrictions have to stop.
It didn't matter. I went to SLO County.
