Behind the Mask –
Designer Carmen Hou:
For breast cancer patient Carmen Hou, participating in BC Cancer’s art therapy program has been a continual source of healing and self-care.
“I was especially drawn to the classes as a way of connecting with other young adults on their cancer journeys, often in a similar stage of life,” says Carmen. “Art therapy has given me an outlet to process the emotions that came after my diagnosis and has been a constant source of joy in a difficult time.”
Now, as part of our “masked heroes” initiative, Carmen’s artwork will also appear on the masks.
“The thought of sharing my artwork with others through this campaign seemed like the perfect way to help raise awareness and give back to BC Cancer.”
