Walking, Riding, & Laughing

The Roller Coaster Ride….

Seas It was able to help a family of four from Colorado recover from the daily grind of living with Cancer. Rich and Diane decided to use their Seas It grant for something their entire family could enjoy – a season pass to Elitch Gardens in Denver. Rich has been battling Stage IV Colorectal & Liver Cancer since May. The season pass has provided Rich and his family with some much needed fun, running around, and quality bonding time that the roller coaster ride of cancer (yes, pun intended!) hasn’t been able to give them. Last weekend, they spent the day at the park living in the moment and feeling great together as a family. We wish Rich and Diane and their young children all the best as they face this battle together as a family.

In Her Studio: A Place To Heal and Recover

Karen, an artist and instructor from PA, hoped to continue painting while being treated for metastatic lung cancer but the process and expense of purchasing supplies for her home studio was a deterrent. The very activity that provided the most healing distraction and comfort for Karen seemed difficult to pursue.

Seas It was able to apply Karen’s Seas It grant to top-notch art supplies delivered to her home studio with donations from the Italian Art Store in NJ and Dick Blick in Philadelphia.

Below is an image of one of Karen’s paintings from 2013. Seas It wishes Karen recovery aided by doing what she loves. We can’t wait to see the outcome of her time in her studio!
