Stories of real people in the real world using art therapy in the healing process is the best way to understand why we need to support art therapy in medicine. Today’s post shares an inspiring story from Everett, Washington on how one patient is using stained glass art as a mode of art therapy both with himself and others.
“Ron Lacount is as colorful as his stained glass artwork. The 67-year-old helps teach art therapy at Everett’s Providence Regional Cancer Partnership. A cancer survivor himself, Lacount was diagnosed with stage IV throat cancer in 2013 and underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatment.”
