Pat Skowronski

Pat has endured three diagnoses of breast cancer and is philosophical about this latest one. “At times I think, is it ‘three strikes you’re out’, or is it ‘three times the charm’? I like to think this will be my ‘charm’.” Pat has been a Survivor Artist and Survivor Artist Mentor since 2009 and she has loved the experience of working with other survivor artists. “These women feel I am helping them, but in turn, they have given me a drive and a purpose to continue my fight against breast cancer. . . . It is a difficult struggle and if I am able to give someone a feeling of hope and encouragement, it is fulfilling to me.”
