Having persevered though my own cancer experience with St. Charles Medical Center, I’m honored to have my Smith Rock watercolor, “Endurance” in the New St. Charles Cancer Center collection. Smith Rock represents a place of strength, peace and continuance; it is a sanctuary to some and a place to be conquered to others. With each colorful brushstroke I thought of the family, friends and medical professionals who helped me through my surgery, treatments and recovery. I also continue to reflect on the personal fortitude, faith, optimism and endurance that it takes to face the challenge and continue onward with a new perspective and respect for life. – Cindy Briggs
