Artwork donated for The Fellowship Of Henna Art Show

This weekend........

Lisa Ornstein graced us with stories & songs passed down from the old time musicians that played from their souls. Lisa too, plays her fiddle & dances in her chair & plays from her heart filled with the spirit of the people she learned from. Remarkble, generous and inspiring! I am in awe of her talent & her generous nature.

Thank you so very much in coming to The Fellowship of Henna Art Show!!

Doctors & Nurses Smile....

I had an appointment the other day to see my cancer doc. The nurse calls my name smiling. My weight was taken, I didnt look. lol I sit down so they can take my blood preasure. "wheres your henna?" the nurse asks. I smile and say not today. She then tells me how the Henna subject has come up several times in the chemo treatment room. There are several ladies that want to try it. The paper on the notice board has disappeared. She asked me for another one. I also gave her the info before I left.
The doc comes in my room. Smiles, asks how I am. "I dont see any Henna?" he says. I laugh. "You know, I think you started something" That was so cool to hear!
I smiled for the rest of the day! It was a good day!

So its been awhile....time to update.

I was recently at the Cancer Survivors Day sponsored by the four major hospitals around these parts. Legacy Health, Providence, Kaiser Perm. OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, Northwest Cancer Specialists and Porland Family Magaizine and Goodness Magazine. Thank you to all these businesses for being in on this. It was really fun to go to share and celebrate. 23 years they have been giving this party & celebrating LIFE!! Its up to us to celebrate each & every day!
The entertainment was AWESOME!! Throwback Suburbia was Fabulous!!Wendy Rover was there doing her Henna Magic on anyone who wanted some. She brought another Henna Artist along and I believe they were busy the whole time!
Of course, my mission is to spread the Word about Henna Art when you are doing chemo. Wendy let me put up some pics of me wearing my henna crowns. I wanted to show people that you have another choice besides wigs, scarves or hats when doing chemo. I see a bald head, I see a canvas you can put henna art on!! Be Beautiful Be Proud!
