Rad Art

A Journey Through Radiation Treatment

Written and Illustrated by Sally Loughridge; Foreword by Eve Ensler

“The paintings are compelling and beautiful . . . . Almost any patient (male or female) or their family members could comfortably look at this work and find it applicable to their own situation.” —The Lancet. A diagnosis of cancer brings with it not only serious medical realities, but often an unfamiliar and daunting emotional landscape. To help steady herself during radiation therapy, Sally Loughridge created a painting and a journal entry each day after treatment, an amazing resource to encourage expression, sharing, and connection between cancer patients and their loved ones. “Sally's depiction of her radiation therapy experience is illuminating to me as a doctor, and I hope that all who read this are as enlightened.”
—Celine Godin, MD, MPH, radiation oncologist
