Space will inspire peace, spirit, and healing within a supportive community, through play, learning, and creative
exploration. The co-founders of Our Space—both breast cancer survivors who have experienced the healing
powers of art and connections to others—bring a strong desire to create a place where children and teens can
continue to experience their roles as child, friend, student, and family member, despite the many challenges that a
life threatening illness can bring. Learn more by visiting www.ourspacerocks.org.
