The Barbara Carmen Creative Experience Fund

Barbara Carmen was an extraordinary woman.While she faced many challenges in life, she always found it in her heart to take care of another. She was generous and kind. She fought for the under dog, she shared her faith and her creative spirit. She was the creator of many good things. She was an artist, a chef, a master gardener, concert pianist and a scholar. She was a mother, wife, daughter, sister, grandmother, great grandmother and friend.

My earliest memories include watching my mother paint or draw. She used these talents to share with others, to create something thoughtful. I admired her gifts.

My mother had the most giving spirit. She offered food and a warm hug to the hungry, a long visit, communion & prayers and homemade soup to the sick, and a bed to those who needed rest. Her deeds were not intended to give her glory, only to comfort those in need.

My mother faced many physical challenges of her own. Cancer was only one of them. It is because of her strength and her conviction to serve her fellow human that I have begun this Experience Fund. My intent is to honor my mother while diligently trying to follow in her footsteps.

The experience fund is offered to those being treated for cancer. I believe that ART heals- I would love to offer you a creative opportunity to create, to heal, to forget your worries for a bit. A workshop is offered to you at a reduced cost.
