Breast cancer survivors paint chairs that will be showcased throughout Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens 
Jupiter Medical Center and the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center are proud to present the “Pink Chair Project,” a campaign to honor breast cancer survivors and raise awareness about breast health during the month of October.
The project features chairs decorated by breast cancer survivors, whose designs reflect the inspiration that helped them navigate through their diagnosis and treatment. Each chair is as unique as the survivor. For instance, Donna’s design illustrates her spiritual faith and her gratitude to her family and her medical team; Kris’ ocean design is inspired in part by the mythical strength of the seahorse; and there’s Marine, whose children inspired her family-centered design. In some cases, they are being created in collaboration with volunteers who embrace the survivor and her artistic vision.
