body of art

While we love anyone who raises money for a cure...let's face it, it is hard to come up with new ideas for projects which get attention.
Which is why we think this is so cool (link).
By the way this campaign is still looking for participants...so if you are brave, give it a shot!

    Thanks for posting news about the project!! As one of the women painted ( my photo isnt finished yet...) I cant say enough good things about Michael, the photographer, and Keegan, the amazing young woman that does the actual body painting. They are an amazing team, doing all they can, to bring an awareness to the effect breast cancer can have on women, and the need for more research until a cure is found! This non-profit project is amazing, and you can see more of the photos on display in Fort Lauderdale Fl, at "Uncommon Gallery". Thanks again for helping to spread the word!

  2. Yay!! I love that you posted this. I was a painted Survivor as well. The experience was transcendental for me... I found that it gave me a newfound strength; it transformed me in a way that is difficult to express into words. When I was going through breast cancer, I felt like it was stealing bits of me every day. As Keegan painted this amazing cosmic landscape onto me, I began to watched my scarred body turn into a thing of beauty. And as Michael was shooting the photos I began to realize that cancer didn't steal my beauty, and that it could never tarnish my soul. I will be forever grateful to Keegan and Michael for allowing me to participate in this amazing project.

    Brightest blessings,
    Melanie
