Karen Haake: Painting the Pain Away

Karen Haake was frightened after receiving a cervical cancer diagnosis, but she believed that her experience would be a positive one. While getting treatment at the Steeplechase Cancer Center at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset, Karen used art therapy to paint the pain away. After her treatment, she wanted to help others heal through art. Now Karen teaches a watercolor painting class at Steeplechase for current cancer patients and patients in remission.
