Wings of Hope Sponsors "Gratitude Graffiti"

What are you grateful for?

That's the question Wings of Hope Cancer Support Center asked this fall with the region's first Gratitude Graffiti Project, which was held Oct. 30 through Thanksgiving (Nov. 27).

According to Carolyn Ettinger, program director at Wings of Hope, the project is intended to help people focus on what they are thankful for and what is going right in their lives. This helps keep life in perspective and can become a tool for healing and coping with difficulties in life.

"The project utilizes community hubs as "Gratitude Stops" to engage passersby by writing a message of gratitude on storefront windows or billboards," Ettinger said.

"At Wings of Hope, we witness the transformation that occurs when cancer patients and survivors recognize the things in their lives that are meaningful," Ettinger said. "Expressing gratitude through a project like Gratitude Graffiti is one way to remind us why life is worth living."

Women Helping Women Breast Cancer Awareness and Recognition event on the 30th. 120 women (and a few men) were in attendance.

Survivors were recognized at the event.
