A great idea - radiation mask exhibition in the UK

I got this email and was asked to participate - I like the idea and would like to be involved...

The exhibition will be held during Brain tumour Awareness Month (March in the UK) and will be made up of around 25 radiotherapy face masks.

The masks will literally be just the clear perspex face that is used here in the UK and the idea is that people who have in some way been touched by a brain tumour decorate a mask, in anyway they like, but so it shows their thoughts on brain tumours.

For example, I have a 16 year old who is decorating a mask as her mother has a Grade 3 brain tumour and she wants to help bring attention to the journey her mother and many others have to go through. She is an art student but I have no idea what her mask will look like, however, she will provide a short piece to be displayed with the mask to help explain the thinking behind her design.

Other masks will be decorated or autographed by some celebrities who have been touched in some way by a brain tumour. We are asking anyone taking part to also write a little about why they decided to take part and how they are connected to the brain tumour 'world'.

All the masks will be displayed together then at the end of the exhibitions we will be auctioning off the masks decorated by the celebrities in the hope that they will raise a decent amount of money towards our charity (we are currently in the process of registering as a charity here in the UK).

But first and foremost this project is about raising awareness of what brain tumour patients, their families, friends and carers go through.
