For those of use whose lives have been touched by cancer, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought heightened health risks that cause many of us to be homebound. Knowing that cancer diagnosis and treatment can already bring challenges related to isolation, depression, fear, physical pain and fatigue, the Hirsch Team wants to understand how cancer survivors, caregivers and patients in treatment are coping.

In August we launched The HOME Project, a creative mail art program where we package and mail a postage-paid box and a paper house template for individuals to cut, fold and decorate with their own art supplies or embellishments. These small houses are a remarkable expression of the thoughts and feelings people have about being HOME. More than 30 finished works of art have been delivered to the Hirsch Center, along with words responding to what HOME means.
