Name: Serry Bauer
Brain Injury: Brain Cancer- 4 tumors in brain, 100’s in spinal column. Extensive treatment: 30 round craniospinal radiation and 4 rounds of chemotherapy with 3 types of chemo. I have short term memory loss, etc.
Explanation of Mask: The holes are for the missing memory and short term memory. The smile is who I am. Loving, hopeful, and determined as the result from my fight with Cancer. The tear is sadness from the loss of normality and the success of my pre-cancer life. The triangle signifies change since I am continually adapting to the repercussions of cancer treatment. The colors are just because. I deny the ability of frustration, anger, and pain to have control over ME.
