The spirit of giving, the giving of spirit: UAMS glass

Posted By on Thu, Nov 17, 2011 at 9:45 AM


James Hayes' multicolored glass sculptures, "Never Lose Spirit," each of them individually created, are on sale in the gift shop in the Winthrop Rockefeller Cancer Institute and the UAMS hospital gift shop. They are $25, quite a bargain for a piece of work by the Pine Bluff glass artist.

Proceeds from the sale of the glass figure, which symbolizes the spirit of cancer patients, benefit the Rockefeller Institute's support services for persons with a cancer diagnosis and their caregivers.

Stacy Sells, a cancer survivor and former UAMS patient, and a public relations executive with Cranford Johnson Robinson Woods, created the Never Lose Spirit program. Vincent Insalaco and Judy Kohn Tenenbaum sponsor the program in memory of Sally Riggs Insalaco and Muriel Balsam Kohn.
