ISU fine arts students honor cancer patients

Last Wednesday, Jan. 29, the Community Cancer Center hosted the Wall of Hope event, in which eight ISU theatre students enacted cancer patients’ experiences, aiming to inspire hope.

Each student was matched with a cancer patient, taped an interview with them and then wrote three minute stories to perform that patient’s story at the event.

These string of stories, called The Hope Monologues, were part of 108 different art dedications for the patients, created by both the patients, ages three to 86, and their family members.

ISU art and design students also contributed to the project with paintings of the patients, and other projects that depicted their hope to beat cancer and live a full life.
