Investigator: Nancy Milliken, MD

Location(s): United States

Description

Twenty years of letters and collaborative art take the stage to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the University of California, San Francisco Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center's Art For Recovery Firefly Project. This theatrical production presents uncommmon conversations about being alive and explores the unlikely bridge between students of all ages and those that face life-threatening illnesses.

With text taken entirely from the writings of local patients and students, The Firefly Project casts an unyielding and personal light on cancer, AIDS, schools, hospitals, families, time, death, and art.
