Breast Cancer Mermaid™ Art Project

Breast Cancer Mermaid™ Art Project

We are hosting our Breast Cancer Mermaid™ Project Exhibition during the Health Expo. We have placed a call to artists to participate. This is another way we are bringing education and awareness about breast cancer. See our write-up below.

Mermaids are seen as mystical alluring sensual beings. When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoes surgery, she believes she’s lost part herself. She has not! The Breast Cancer Mermaid is our way to show that a woman can still be sensual and alluring despite breast cancer. We welcome each artists’ depiction of what they envision a Breast Cancer Mermaid would look like.  Would she have one shell, two, none? Would she still have her long lustrous hair? Would her tail be a little shabby? Share your version of what a Breast Cancer Mermaid™ would look like.
