Drawing My Way Through Cancer By Ken Margolies

A slideshow of sketches documenting one man’s medical journey.

Work  from Drawing My Way Through Cancer. Untitled/Slide (above). Freaking Out (right)

One day Ken received the news from his doctor that he had tongue cancer. Living in New York at the time, his friends asked him to report and share his experience as their way to stay connected and supportive. The drawings he created are a deeply personal record of a full range of emotions, fear, pain courage and hope. The story is hard to watch in parts, but Ken hopes it will be helpful to others. Most importantly the story has a bright colorful ending.

Ken’s story is an inspiring example of how creating and sharing art can help you through difficult times.
