Behind the Mask –
Designed by Angus Pratt:
Angus Pratt is no stranger to the devastation of a cancer diagnosis, having faced both male breast cancer and lung cancer in recent years. Throughout his journey, Angus has been involved in BC Cancer’s art therapy program that has helped him deal with the mental and emotional impacts of his diagnosis.
Now, as part of our “masked heroes” initiative, in collaboration with the art therapy program, Angus’ artwork will appear on the masks.
His design, inspired by his past Saskatchewan winters, symbolizes the sun rising on a new chapter in his life. A chapter he hopes will bring hope to other patients facing cancer.
“Art brings humanity to a devastating disease, and allows the expression of difficult moments,” says Angus. “Supporting the development of artistic expression takes a safe environment and fellow travelers willing to explore difficult emotions.”
