The presentation will follow a journey through thyroid cancer diagnosis, surgery and treatment examining how art served to restore hope and control through those pessimal times. The theory of "Flow" by Dr. Cszikszentmihali sheds light on the power of art as one activity capable of facilitating optimal experience by transporting one to a new and more complex self even during otherwise unpleasant life experiences. Happiness and enjoyment may be within one's control even though disease, trials or other changes restrict how one previously achieved enjoyment.
