 ​​​NORDSTROM EVENTS FOR CANCER PATIENTS AND SURVIVORS:

We recognize that there are many patients and survivors who are interested in our programs but are either not present in the hospitals or cancer centers when we visit or are desiring to participate in one of our programs again. We hold 4 workshops a year at Nordstrom in Perimeter Mall. Patients and survivors can attend at no cost. Registration is required to attend and is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

HOW DO WE HELP CANCER PATIENTS AND SURVIVORS?

Because any one of us could find ourselves fighting the same battle, we believe in humanizing the cancer experience. We use the arts as a tool to connect and encourage. Our mission is to help those who are battling cancer by turning their minds to something creative and beautiful.  We provide programs delivered in clinical settings that give patients a sense of accomplishment and a positive distraction to their long, difficult days, helping them relieve anxiety and reduce stress related to the disease and its treatments. 

THREE WAYS HOW YOU CAN HELP
HOST A COMMUNITY EVENT
BECOME A SPONSOR

This opportunity is for groups and companies. Anyone with 
willing hands and an open heart can be part of our service project that gives 
back to the local community. Your group will help sponsor and create some of the programs we deliver at no cost to cancer patients at 13 local hospitals and cancer centers in GA.

The cost to deliver our programs to cancer patients at local hospitals and cancer centers is $30 per patient. All of our programs are provided free of charge to the patients. Your donation will ensure that we continue our mission. You can also sponsor a workshop at a clinical setting for
10 to 15 patients. 
When patients can set aside their anxiety and fear to focus on a creative task, it gives their mind and body a chance to heal. It enhances their feelings of self-worth and gives them an identity outside of the cancer diagnosis.
We would like to extend an invitation to partner with us in this mission by sponsoring yearly programs we deliver to hospitals and cancer centers in GA.

HOW DO WE HELP CANCER PATIENTS AND SURVIVORS?
 
​Cancer is no longer a death sentence. More patients than ever are treated and survive; however, life is never the same afterwards. The meaning of things changes. A new awareness of the importance of time and reordered priorities can make new beginnings difficult. FBT supports both patients currently in treatment as well as survivors in transition. The group setting of our programs helps create a more supportive and positive environment for these survivors. Art is a significant part of a cancer patient’s recovery and is just as vital to the healing process after remission.
