I have presented a body of work in class including slides of artist
Hannah Wilke which dealt with her mother's and her own death from breast
cancer. Almost everyone has been, or will be, affected by dancer during
their lifetime. Cancer is usually accompanied by questioning, pain, and
grief. Educating children in the classroom about cancer will promote
awareness and understanding of the disease. There may even be a child
in their school, or a parent that is battling cancer. Through
education, students will have a better understanding of how do deal with
it when it arises in their own life.
Thank you to those of you have commented on my topic already, I
appreciate your help.
