Having Fun at the Cancer Clinic

Maybe you envision a kids' cancer clinic as dark and gloomy, with bald dark-eyed children moaning and holding iv poles.

The truth is delightfully different. It's a place for healing and thanks to wonderful volunteers, a place for fun. I talked to one of the volunteers, Tara (not pictured), yesterday. She's there every Thursday. She's an artist and wanted to share her passion with kids fighting cancer. She glowed, talking about it. She says she's gotten far more out of it than any of the kids. (The kids might argue her point.)
