Survivors & Stories

“Cancer broke my heart, challenged my inner warrior, and scarred my body…
Bodies of Courage and Lisa Scholder provided a healing balm for my soul.”

Bodies of Courage is an “Artistic Visual Testimony” to the strength of these courageous Cancer Survivors.

This project has given survivors the self empowerment, strength, and determination enabling them to see their bodies as a colorful unique piece of art.

It’s their Celebration of Life!
