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 do you think about Guadalupe's major housing plans, which include 800 planned homes?

Good. The area needs as many new houses as possible.
It's a good idea if commercial developments like big box stores don't follow.
There should be more, but 800 houses is too many.
Bad idea. That many homes will skyrocket the city's population.
