Children's Art Project Designers Recognition Event On Tuesday, May 17, 10 young cancer patients received a ceremonial medal recognizing their artistic contributions to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Children's Art Project (CAP). The event recognizes MD Anderson patients who created artwork for 2011, including those who developed creative designs for the Valentines, Everyday Greetings and Holiday Collections. Each child will also have their individual work on display. "Honoring these children is something that we take great pride in because their efforts and creativity are at the core of what we do," said Shannan Murray, CAP's executive director. "The ceremony is our chance to highlight their achievements and show our support." Some of the artists are long-time CAP contributors, so this is an opportunity to highlight their continued achievements. This includes Emily Garcia, who created the "Winter Cardinal" and "Guiding Star" artwork, Fadila Farag, who designed the popular 2011 "Silver Heart," and Luis Escamilla, who created artwork featured on more than 15 designs. CAP's mission is to support young cancer patients and their families through the sale of products using their artwork. Funds generated allow children to participate in summer camps, scholarships, an annual rehabilitative ski trip to Utah and other patient-focused programs. Since CAP's inception, more than $27 million has been returned to continue this goal.
