Twist Out Cancer is an international, non-profit charitable organization that provides psychosocial support to individuals touched by cancer through creative arts programming. The organization was founded on the principle that when you share, the world opens up.
After surviving Grey Zone Lymphoma in 2011, Jenna Benn Shersher, Founder and Executive Director, saw firsthand how people with cancer have a unique set of needs that are not being addressed or talked about. She found that one way of fulfilling this need is through creative arts, which could be used as a mechanism for coping and healing.
What started in 2012 as a small art exhibition in Chicago for 20 Inspirations and Artists has now become an international program that has touched over 40,000 people around the world.
