All Houses of Hope Artists

Houses of Hope

Each house has been hand painted by a child who is either currently living with cancer or is in remission (a survivor). Children who have passed away are represented as well through houses that their families have painted. They have all used the houses as a medium to convey their interests, likes and journey through cancer.
