Students Hope to Lift Cancer Patients’ Spirits with Painted Radiation Masks

Artwork produced by local high school students will be on display at the UAMS Radiation Oncology Center.

The project, Paint over Pain, aims to lift patients’ spirits by bringing beauty to a frightening part of treatment: radiation masks.

Radiation masks immobilize patients during treatment by holding their head and neck in place for precise radiation treatment.
