Sandra Pelzek

Sandra was diagnosed at age 33 and came to the Rare Chair Affair at the invitation of two other survivor artists “who I enjoy spending time with and their participation encouraged me—I do not think of myself as an artist!” She says that one focus of her survivorship has been about understanding which things in life are—or are not—worth stressing over and feels that “it’s important to take time to care for yourself, not just for you, but for those you love.”
