Kaiser Permanente Cancer Patients Engage in Art Therapy at Oncology on Canvas Event

HONOLULU — Cancer patients, families, survivors and medical staff gathered at Kaiser Permanente Moanalua Medical Center today for Oncology on Canvas, an annual event funded by the Oncology Nursing Society Hawaii Chapter. Participants of all ages had the opportunity to draw, paint and write about their journeys, from diagnosis to treatment and healing. Attendees also connected with a network of other oncology patients, families and staff to discuss shared experiences and inspire others going through similar journeys.

“Bringing together patients, former patients and families helps build a support system and community for our members whose lives have been touched by cancer,” said Donna Gabriel, manager of cardiology and oncology at Moanalua Medical Center. “Creative expression is a unique and powerful way to process the difficulties of diagnosis and treatment and connect with other patients going through similar experiences.”

Originally modeled after the international Lilly Oncology on Canvas biennial art competition, Oncology on Canvas was brought to the islands by the Oncology Nursing Society in 2007, allowing patients and their families to share stories and support each other through art therapy. Art created from the event will be displayed in the oncology department at Moanalua Medical Center.
