Cancer Survivors Plaza.

Cancer...There's Hope Sculpture

In Dallas there is a large sculpture with a happy looking family skipping out of a series of square frames while a number of other sicker looking figures are entering. A marker reads: This sculpture, 'Cancer: There's Hope,' is the last work of the world renowned sculptor Victor Salmones. He claimed it to be his finest, a labor of love. The back five figures are cancer patients and their supporters preparing to enter treatment, represented by the maze. Notice the fear, determination and hope on their faces in contrast to the joy of the front three signifying successful treatment."

The sculptures are identical to the ones at other Cancer Survivor plazas erected in U.S. cities.
