Dear Diary…a reflection on the experience of and recovery from cancer

Official launch 6pm Thursday 18th Oct

The ‘Dear Diary…’ project is a unique collaboration between a researcher, a cancer survivor and an artist! As part of a doctoral research into how women recover from cancer, one of the participants unexpectedly arrived with a diary, which tells the story of her year and a half journey from cancer diagnosis to recovery.  The artist Sheila Wood uses watercolour and mixed media to magically bring the significant moments of that journey to life.  This artwork will be displayed in South Tipperary Arts Centre, Clonmel from Tuesday October 16th until Wednesday Oct 31st.
The official ‘Dear Diary…’ launch will take place on Thursday October 18th from 6pm till 8pm at the South Tipperary Arts Centre. It will be officially opened by Clonmel Mayor Richie Molloy. This will be a very special evening where Noeleen Doherty will read excerpts from her diary. Sheila Wood will talk about the artistic process behind the art she has created. The researcher – Marie Walsh,  who is a Lecturer from Limerick Institute of Technology, has been working with women in remission from cancer for the last 3 years. She will share what women have to say about how they recovered from cancer. 
October is breast cancer awareness month. Let’s celebrate recovery, growth and the strength of the human spirit!
