Meet Marianne – A 3x Cancer Survivor, Artist & Mother⠀
I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at 28 in 1994. I had radiation and a splenectomy (and told I would not have children) In 1997. I had a recurrence, then had ABVD Chemotherapy in the year 2000. To my suprise, I had my son Leonardo!
Then, 2014 age 48, I was diagnosed with BC from massive amounts of radiation 20 years prior. I had a double mastectomy and reconstruction. The reconstruction failed after several infections (and sepsis). I had the implants removed. I am now flat…(working on fabulous!) My art has been my therapy. I’ve painted throughout all my cancer journeys!
I am an artist, mother and 3x cancer thriver and advocate.
Id love to share my new website ( designed by my talented brother Keith DuQuette)
I share my art , my story and my advocacy
My art has changed throughout my 25 years of cancer thriving.
I rely on the therapeutic aspect of creating the art , as much as, the art itself.
And having my art relate to those going through a similar journey , is so important for me as an artist.
