“I feel strongly grateful to have an opportunity to participate in an event which benefits this vital and indispensable program that has so personally benefited me and my life. I feel as though I am a good example of how such programs can enrich the lives of those going through the arduous process of rehabilitation and recovery in a lasting and meaningful way. Now 14 years post injury, the craft that I learned in the art therapy program at RIC has not only become my means of financial independence, but also has led me to discover my passion and purpose in life, to be an artist.”
-Mariam, Professional Artist and Former RIC Patient
