A Sculptural Tribute to those who have, who are and who will battle Cancer.
By Artist Michael Tieman

Dedicated to the women in my family
who have battled breast cancer;
my mother-in-law Janet Ormandy Marshall (Muzzy),
my aunt Pat Wetzel,
my sister Beverly Starr,
and my younger sister
Connie Sue Drotos,
who after a courageous six year battle
with breast cancer,
died on July 29, 2008 .  

Always a positive attitude and a smile
Muzzy and Connie were an inspiration
to those battling breast Cancer,
and they will be sorely missed.

November 2012
On November 9, 2012 Nancy and I are donating a 36" Courage sculpture
to the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute - Oregon Health Science University, in Portland, Oregon.
This is in memory of Nancy's mother and one of my inspirations for this piece, Janet Ormandy Marshall "Muzzy".
