Diagnosed at 65 after 40 years of normal mammograms, Jane feels strongly that many women her age don’t understand that their risk increases with age and that they need to continue their annual screenings. She describes her survivorship as being about “Staying alive in body and spirit. Coming to peace with the fact that I am not the same person I was and will never be. Learning to find a peaceful place in the midst of great fear. Being amazed and eternally thankful for the kindness and support and love that other people have given me. . . . Gaining clarity in how I want to spend my time and feeling a sense of renewal and energy.” She is happy to have this opportunity to meet and make art with other survivor artists.
