This week we completed the framing of the latest Facing Chemo exhibit – Before & After. The show hung this past Wednesday at a corporate event at Genentech. We are looking forward to seeing the show hang again soon.

In May we welcomed a number of guests at OMI Gallery who came to hear Bob talk about the Facing Chemo project.  We’re honored that a handful of participants came to both listen and take part in the discussion.  A special thank you to Ferne, who agreed to have her portrait taken during the event so that Bob could walk attendees through the process, and to Dexter who bravely shared her experience with the group as well.

We recently received a heartfelt note of thanks from this Facing Chemo participant.  “…this project has brought healing to me in a way I would have never known I needed.  It’s reinforced that my core is essentially the same beneath the effects of chemo.”  This particular image struck a cord, “despite all of the things cancer has tried to rob from me, in this image, I see, and now know that cancer will never rob me of joy!  This image made me happy…  Bob obviously has a gift and I am so grateful he is using it to do this project.”

Things are falling into place in preparation for the Facing Chemo opening this September.  The book is in design and the first image has been printed – and it’s truly remarkable.
