The dyning Room: by KRISTINA RUDOLPH

Cancer affects us, every day, in different ways. I believe our environment increases Cancer's risk. To some, Cancer has touched our hearts. To others it has touched our bodies. Cancer affects our lives, our friends and our families.

This life-size installation represents the reliquary for my life. It contains my memories and feelings in dealing with close friends and relatives that have died of Cancer and the few that have survived their plight. It is my aim to allow you to enter this world inside my head. As everyone will be affected differently, it is my hope that you will take a tour and perhaps reflect amongst your own experiences in dealing with this disease.

The waiting room contains facts and documentation that I have collected throughout a two-year-long process. It is my hope that you will share in your experiences and stories with others to raise awareness. I encourage you to read more on how to gain prevention and avoid increasing your own Cancer risks.

Thanks to all who helped and attended! I had just shy of 250 visitors!

Like any other major experience, illness actually changes us. How? Well, for one thing we are temporarily relieved from the pressure of meeting the world head-on. We enter a realm of introspection and self-analysis. We think soberly, perhaps for the first time, about our past and future. Illness gives us that rarest thing in the world a second chance, not only at health but at life itself!
