The Arts and Humanities Program relies exclusively on contributions from individuals and organizations that recognize the essential role the arts play in managing emotions during a health crisis. Arts and Humanities Programs are designed to promote the health and well being of patients, family members and staff at the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.

We are grateful to the Robert M. Fisher Foundation for the Cecilia F. Rudman Endowment Fund and to The Joseph E and Marjorie B. Jones Foundation, Prince Charitable Trusts, The Cornell Douglas Foundation, The Hargrove Pierce Foundation, The Sue Zabel Fund, Lisa Flaxman, The Kathleen A. Beard Memorial Endowment Fund, The D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and The National Endowment for the Arts for their generous contributions to the arts at Lombardi.

This program is supported by public and private contributions. For more information or to contribute to the arts at Lombardi, please contact Julia Langley at 202-444-7228 or


"I realized that when I was doing the watercoloring I would really immerse myself in what I was doing to the point that I would forget everything else. And I knew that was part of the cure..."
