Brief “Entering the world of cancer can be very dim. From the responsibility a medical student takes in becoming an oncologist, to the mother who watches her four-year-old deal with chemotherapy, the malignancy of cancer plagues everyone involved—their minds, bodies and spirits.
We know that in order to win this fight, it takes all of us, entirely, and how we are feeling in every moment becomes an integral part of the victory. Research on colour psychology shows that there is a correlation between colour and the way we feel. We want to bridge the gap and provide a gateway towards mind healing and inner peace.
#colourishappy is an initiative to brighten up the lives of anyone coming across the battle with Cancer. By beautifying a wall of cancer institutions, we hope to create a haven for anyone that chooses to set foot in the space.
Our goal is to rebuild the sense of community, to instil a voice among everyone on this journey and to bring back COLOR into the lives that need it the most.

You are doing a great job, the idea that we can break free is what healing is all about and you got it right with the butterflies.

Thank you so much for the fabulous mural. It’s really delightful. Your team went through a lot of trouble with trying out two murals for us but the results are well worth the effort. I hope that you will paint many more walls for us. The entire SRCC family is grateful for your commitment and involvement.
