April 29 was a very special evening at The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s Patient Art Show, a four-day exhibit sponsored by The Society’s Patient Art Show Committee and the Patient Recreation Department.

Michele Russell, a survivor and a speaker at one of The Bone Marrow Foundation’s past galas, and Duane Bailey-Castro, a Bone Marrow Foundation patient and survivor, showcased their artwork. Michele has a mural business and Duane is a Social Science teacher for 6th and 7th grade in a private New York City school.
