DONATE

 

Seasons of Life, presented by TowneBank, was created by The Paula Takacs Foundation to raise community awareness about sarcoma cancers and to support sarcoma research through fundraising. This artwork pays homage to the experiences of all those impacted by cancer and expresses gratitude for their healthcare heroes. Seasons of Life is a tree composed of hundreds of exquisite hand-blown and fused glass pieces. Its vibrant seasonal palette of blossoms narrates the artist’s journey through sarcoma diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. This piece is the first installation within the Growing Hope through Art Program. Located in one of the most highly traveled corridors of Levine Cancer Institute in Charlotte, NC, it connects Buildings 1 and 2.
