I created this mixed-media piece from clay, fabric, tree branches, beads, and fiber, and titled it “Spirit of Hope” to emphasize my belief that positivity is essential in my life while dealing with metastatic breast cancer.

I have been working in polymer clay for several years and have always loved fabric and fiber, so I stretched my skills to create this large wall hanging.

I plan to create more of these to share with other patients with cancer and possibly to raise money for research.
