LMC to unveil new artwork for Angel of Hope Project
The painting “Artist of Light” serves to pay tribute to those who have lost their lives to cancer as well as survivors of the disease.
LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - A hospital is hoping a new painting will light the way for those fighting cancer.
For the 11th year in a row Laredo Medical Center invited a local artist to paint their own rendition of the Angel of Hope.
On Wednesday morning, the artist Allan Gindic was present at the ceremony where they revealed the painting virtually.
This painting serves to pay tribute to those who have lost their lives as well as survivors of the disease.
The painting is then signed by cancer survivors and hung in the A.R. Sanchez Cancer Center.
The artist Gindic says he is honored to paint for such a cause.
“I hope my painting is called ‘Angel of Light’ for the Angel of Hope Ceremony and I wanted mine to illuminate people during dark times, especially if they’re having pain and if they’re not feeling so happy, I hope my painting can help them stay a little more confident.”
The painting is also signed by cancer survivors and is now hanging in the A.R. Sanchez Cancer Center.
