As the world begins to move past COVID-19, reflecting on the past year can help everyone empathize with people recovering from cancer. This talk explores recovery and return, often accompanied by feelings of loneliness and hope, guilt and gratitude. The discussion also looks at how to reach a better understanding of these complex emotions by viewing works of art, such as Thunderstruck Tree and Tobias Healing His Father’s Blindness.
