An opening night reception will be held on
April 6 at the Writers Theatre

Twist Out Cancer, an international non-profit charitable
organization that provides psychosocial support to individuals touched by cancer through  creative arts programming, announced that an opening night reception for its Spring 2024 Brushes With Cancer Program will be held on Saturday, April 6, at the
Writers Theatre in Glencoe, Ill.

The unique pieces of artwork that represent an Inspiration's personal journey with cancer will be on display at the Writers Theatre and then at
North Shore Congregation Israel through Tuesday, April 23.

Twistshop, which is an art therapy-focused workshop that promotes healing, relaxation and emotional recovery through art therapy-based interventions, will be held at the North Shore Congregation Israel on Wednesday April 17, at 10 a.m.

The Spring 2024
Brushes with Cancer program features 70 participants from 14 states and six countries. It is a unique celebration that pairs accomplished Artists with Inspirations, who have been touched by cancer as previvors, survivors, or caregivers.

As the Inspirations share their twist
on cancer – stories, feelings, and experiences – the artists create a unique work of art that represents their personal journey with cancer. The Spring 2024 program includes unique pieces of art representing 35 individual journeys with cancer.

“I founded Twist Out Cancer with the belief that art, community, and resilience have the power to transform someone's personal journey with cancer. Together, we are creating a tapestry of strength, hope, and creativity that empowers individuals to face the twists in life with courage andgrace,”

said Jenna Benn Shersher, Founder and Chief Executive Officer
of Twist Out Cancer.

“After 12 years, our Brushes With Cancer program continues to amaze me with its profound art, shared stories, and the strength that comes from Inspirations sharing their personal stories.”

An opening night reception will be held on Saturday, April 6 at the Writers Theatre, with entry times at 6 p.m. or 8:30 p.m. All tickets include food, beverages, music by the
Imperial Boxmen, private access to the exhibition, and a special program featuring testimonials from program participants.

The 6 p.m. show is sold out and limited tickets are still available for the reception at8:30 p.m. One ticket is $75, two tickets are $140, five tickets are $350, and
can be purchased here.

From Monday, April 8 through Friday, April 12, the artwork will be on display through private tours only at the Writers Theatre.

 Those interested in viewing the art
can email August Spree,
Twist Out Cancer’s Director of Programs, to arrange a day and time to visit the Writers Theatre.
Appointments are not required to view the art at North Shore Congregation Israel’s Frank Memorial Hall from Monday,
 April 15 through Tuesday, April 23.

A Twistshop will be held at the North Shore Congregation Israel on Wednesday April 17, at 10 a.m.
No prior art-making skills are needed to participate, and all materials will be included.
Advance registration is required.

Since it was founded in 2011, Twist Out Cancer has positively impacted over 257,000 people through programming and outreach, including Brushes with Cancer programs, Twistshops, Twist Hearts, and more. This year, there will be two Brushes With Cancer programs that will be open to
