The Gallery School of Pottstown and The Pottstown Memorial Regional Cancer Center, a division of Fox Chase Cancer Center, have applied for a grant from the LiveStrong Foundation to expand their Healing Arts program. THEY NEED YOUR VOTE TO GET THE FUNDS TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
The Gallery School has teamed up with The Pottstown Memorial Regional Cancer Center to offer a Healing Arts Program that uses different art forms, group discussions, and creative workshops to help patients explore the person they want to be or used to be in the context of their cancer diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. The Artist in Residence program will expand on what is currently being offered and would improve patient perception of their own well-being. But they need your vote. It’s easy to do.
Online voting began on March 7th and runs through March 23rd. Just as the Pottstown area kicks cancer’s butt in fundraising for Relay for Life, let’s rally for this Healing Arts Program, lead the way, and click away. That’s all it takes – a few clicks – to cast your vote.

Please don’t hesitate to forward this to spread the word, and thank you in advance for supporting the healing power of the arts for those who are battling cancer in our community.
