Day one of giving Luna Chick an updated cosmic look so I can take her to the science center family events with me.
The original Luna Chick is the black-and-white painting that I created when I thought my life was ending, but little did I know, it had only just begun.
I painted it just before my six-month follow-up breast exam after having found a lump in my breast. The lump could not be seen on a mammogram the previous July. On January 12th, 2016, it had grown and was now visible. I wasn't going to get the surgery because the doctor thought it would be a benign papilloma on a milk duct. Luna Chick woke me in the night three days in a row. I finally looked at the painting and the left nipple (the exact spot where my tumor was located) that was so prominent shining in the moonlight, and I knew that I must get the surgery. The painting must've known it too because after I was diagnosed I was told that my tumor was at a 60% growth rate & 20% is considered high. They told me had I not gotten the surgery that I would be dead by Christmas 2016. Luna Chick saved my life and when I lost my job a week later after I was diagnosed with breast cancer, art saved my financial life as well.
It has been 2 years since that nightmare, yet most bizarre & wonderful adventure began for me. i’ve done several updates since then changed her into a Lunar Goddess. I added the color pink to her later post the painting on social media to remind women to do self-breast exams.
Please do self-breast exams. Early detection saved my breasts & my life. Please continue to support my art & other artists. Sometimes out of the greatest tragedy, a gift is given.
I am forever grateful & thankful for you all. 🙏🏻 LIKE, FOLLOW and SHARE, spread the word of self care. 🙏🏻 #breastcancersurvivor#doselfbreastexams#pink#healthyhabitforlife#lunachickbreastexamsonthefullmoon#fullmoon#fullmoonbreastexam#lunachick#thelunachickartist#nancyspurlockfineart#cancersurvivor#artsavedmylife
