The Art of Healing
Advocates say art therapy is an effective tool to help young cancer patients and their families cope with the stress of disease and treatment. Tracy's Kids is a nonprofit focused on supporting these young patients through art therapy and awareness-raising events like its annual "And the Winner Is" fundraiser. Highlights include commentary from Second Lady Karen Pence; Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.; and his wife Marcelle Leahy, Tracy's Kids board member.
