On Nov. 11, Twist Out Cancer held a reception at the Detroit Shipping Company to honor participants and artists in its Midwest Brushes With Cancer program.

The initiative pairs individuals affected by cancer (known as “inspirations”) with artists who create unique works based on each person’s cancer journey.The event featured a live auction of the artists’ pieces, which were all inspired by Detroit-area residents who have been affected by cancer.

All proceeds benefit the mission and work of Twist Out Cancer, which is based in Chicago and Philadelphia but has staff, participants, and board members all over the world. Since its founding in 2012, the organization has touched the lives of more than 140,000 people through its programs and events.
