Every 23 seconds, somewhere in the world, someone is diagnosed with breast cancer. Every 69 seconds, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer. Let’s take action NOW !
Janet (Jian) Liu, as an artist, has fought through tough mastectomy surgeries and lengthy chemotherapy after diagnosed breast cancer in 2005. She had another breast cancer surgery and radiation treatment in 2012. It was this difficult experience that inspired and encouraged Janet to establish a charitable organization to help other breast cancer patients, survivors, and community in a novel way of knowing of, beating off and recovering from the sickness. Janet has recognized that it’s not sufficient only relying on medical treatment during the recovery and that the more important thing is to maintain a positive and healthy lifestyle. By participating different activities of art and healthy living, patients and survivors can find more positive thinking and active life style they need to fight the disease.
Janet found the Art Saving Life Foundation in 2008, which is the volunteer-based registered charitable organization, the mission is to assist in the recovery of breast cancer survivors by providing art therapy programs, presenting seminars on achieving self-balance, and conducting research by funding qualified donee. We donated and setup “Art Saving Life Foundation Graduate Scholarship” at Concordia University to award the excellent student in Art Therapy master programs since 2011. We donated to support Ville Marie Oncology Foundation, art therapy research and open studio at Cedars CanSupport.
We pioneered ZUMBA Fitness charity fundraising party for breast cancer since 2009 in L’ile-Bizard community center. We organized Zumba Outdoor Summer Event 2015/2016/2017 which got great success and got great support from L’ile-Bizard City. The purpose of this event is to promote the Zumba fitness dance to local community for free; also help to build health and positive lifestyles.
We are planning to have Zumba Summer Outdoor Fundraising Party at Aug 1st, 2017, Tuesday night 7pm-9pm. The zumba party will be led by our super star – Lisbeth Mora and guest instructors. We will invite Breast Cancer survivors and their family, friends and any interested people joining to this most exciting and popular party, dancing with Latin happy music.
