Maria’s unique voice emphasizes humor, and her self-reflection has been
deep. She brings spiritual and emotional depth together with scientific fact, and
then transforms both with her ever-present sense of humor. She makes people
feel comfortable about the disease and then comforts them.

The photographs reveal the poignancy, as well as the unexpected humor, of being
treated for cancer

Maria uses humor in a sensitive and comforting way. She has terrific insight and
the ability to put confusing, painful thoughts into perspective and make everyone
around her feel better. Patients and family members laugh out loud while viewing
her exhibit. Others then join in, laugh together, and begin talking, telling their own
stories.  It is inspiring to watch.

Your exhibit is magnificent and I am certain that your work has inspired many …
you have taken control of your illness, reached out to others and helped them
