Cancer Survivors' Park

October 2015 - Rancho Mirage CA

We've been in Palm Springs many times and we have driven by this park numerous times saying we should stop. Finally we did this year.



First is a positive mental attitude walk with 14 bronze plaques, four inspirational and 10 instructional.




Second is a sculpture of eight life-size bronze figures passing through a maze representing cancer treatment. The five before the maze show fear, hope and determination in their faces while the three after are laughing and happy, representing successful treatment.







 Third is a “Road to Recovery” consisting of seven plaques explaining what cancer is and basic actions to successfully overcome the disease.
