Founder's Note

"Art builds a bridge from person to person communicating what is often not found with words."

About Hirsch Wellness Network

How It Began

For as long as I can remember, “cancer” has been a word associated with my family. From mother to daughter for four generations, breast cancer and ovarian cancer have left their mark. As a breast cancer survivor, I understand the physical and emotional challenges brought on by this disease and have found valuable support, strength, and compassion from others touched by a cancer diagnosis.

Hirsch Wellness Network was started in my mother’s honor.  An artist who shared her talents with many and lost her battle with cancer at age 34, when I was 9 years old.   Since 2008, Hirsch Wellness has been dedicated to building a cancer support community that connects cancer patients and survivors, caregivers, family, and friends with creative tools and self-care strategies providing emotional support during treatment into survivorship and beyond. I hope you will join me and become a part of the support network.


Value of creativity

“I have learned that a group involved in a creative activity is far more helpful than one that just talks about loss and fears.”

—A Caregiver

In the moment

“Hirsch Wellness provides a joyful ‘present-time’ art experience offering
a chance to share deep feelings
related to my cancer experience.”

—A Cancer Survivor

A place to be fearless

“This workshop has allowed me to learn to let go. I didn’t think I was artistic or creative, but I was surprised with my results!  This is a safe environment to express yourself. I don’t have to be afraid of my cancer or ashamed
of my feelings.”

—A Cancer Survivor
