Art from the Heart

The American Cancer Society held an "Art from the Heart" painting event Saturday.

The event was held at Texas Oncology from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Local pediatric cancer patients, survivors and their siblings decorated hearts and created original pieces of art.

"We have been given the opportunity as artists to take the pieces that the children have done and we're going to be putting it into a collage on April 5th. Then that will be auctioned off and unveiled that evening to raise funds for the American Cancer Society," said artist coordinators Besty Edwards and Crimson Shults.

"Art from the Heart" is also designed to help raise money locally for cancer research.

Each artist's heart symbolized what each child has gone through on their journey with cancer.
