Brick Auction Year 2011 
Brick Number 247 
Artist Full Name Ava Bachelier 
Title Sunshine 
Artist Short Bio I've been fighting since my premature birth - I'm legally blind, had polio as a child and still suffer its effects, and in 2009, lost my right breast due to 3 different cancers. I lost all my hair, which came back curly and unmanageable, but not my sense of humor. Just as I've managed to surpass the other obstacles (blindness and polio) in my life, I'm confident I will survive this. My worsened eyesight caused me to give up detailed painting, but I still donate a brick each year. The benefit far outweighs the cost (migraine headache). 
Inspiration My inspiration for this brick came while I was sitting outside enjoying the sunshine and the marvelous realization that I can still do so. It's been a long two years since my surgery to remove my right breast and the three cancers in it and all my tests to date show no recurrence.
