Best in Show: Blog Best in Show: Youtube Rookie of the Year Patient Leader Hero

Adriana, a breast cancer survivor, started a blog in 2017 celebrating art produced by breast cancer patients and pairing them with art mentors. In its first year the blog featured contributions from all over the world: 25 paintings, 8 drawings, 25 poems and 11 photographs. Fb likes 216, Twitter followers 424. Blog now used in teaching & advocacy.  — S.A.

The Breast Cancer Art project blog celebrates art produced by breast cancer patients from all over the world. It is very innovative, well designed and helps people understand what going through breast cancer treatment is all about by enabling cancer patients to tell their own story through their own artistic means.  — S.A.

I am inspired by Adriana's generosity of spirit that whilst still in recovery herself she established an online forum to provide support and motivation to others also impacted by this disease. Adriana is a true inspiration.

Adriana's story is inspiring and her tenacity is to be applauded

Adriana has raised awareness of the Breast Cancer Art Project across the work place. It was lovely to see the email section stating "Fighting fit and back at work". The art work is very powerful; the alive in the rain piece captures a rare moment.  — Georgie
