This series of 14 works using oil pastel was created by Hollis Sigler after she was diagnosed with breast cancer for the third time in 1992. The drawings portray with immediacy the range of emotions an individual may have after being diagnosed with this illness. The replica exhibit of Hollis Sigler's Breast Cancer Journal: Walking with the Ghosts of My Grandmothers, retired in 1999 to the Lombardi Cancer Center at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, DC. The show, a collaboration between SAH, the artist, and the National Museum for Women in the Arts, visited hospitals throughout the country on its four-year tour.
