As a sculptor, my work has always had a purpose that was spiritual, and my career was always about using my art to help others. I created The Glass Ribbon Project over fifteen years ago to support women with breast cancer. I was inspired to create strength stones after I read the story of a cancer nurse who was diagnosed with breast cancer. When she told her mother about the diagnosis, her mom reached down and picked up two stones. While keeping one for herself, she gave one to her daughter and told her “I will reach into my pocket and hold on to my stone whenever you have a procedure or treatment, and I will say a prayer.” Her mother and I both believe that there is a real connection between people that makes a difference. When people share their strength and hope – healing happens!
