So recently in the news, I saw that Rob Gronkowski, "Gronk", of the Patriots shaved his head to raise money for local kids who were fighting cancer. It's amazing to see someone like Gronk to spend his time to raise money for these kids who are fighting such a terrible battle. The painting shown above was drawn by Jac Saorsa. She painted a collection of similar pieces and presented them in a exhibition called Illness begins with an "I". This image and others that I saw showed the pain and suffering that cancer patients endure. I personally do not know anyone who has cancer and it was more than shocking.
