Breast Cancer Patient Gives Painting to Cancer Program at Wheaton Franciscan - Elmbrook Memorial Campus

Brookfield, WI - Leaders from Wheaton Franciscan-Elmbrook Memorial Campus and its cancer care leaders formally received a painting by local artist Jennifer Weichelt, a breast cancer patient at Elmbrook Memorial. Weichelt is a Brookfield resident who originally created the painting during her treatment for a local breast cancer research event, and decided to donate the piece to the center where she received her treatment.

“The words outlined in the painting are from breast cancer survivors, and I included them in this piece to help provide hope for others,” Weichelt said. She created the painting while she was receiving chemotherapy at the medical oncology offices at Elmbrook Memorial.

The painting is now displayed near the infusion services area, where Weichelt hopes it will inspire other cancer patients in their fight against this disease.
