Dr. Ravi and Dr. Salkar at the press conference for the foundation they are starting with Scott that will benefit a program to bring art to hospitals in Goa and encourage other patients to stay positive even though they may be experiencing cancer. When Scott learned he was terminally ill he focused his attention on how much time he had left to LIVE instead of thinking of how he was dying. This is the essence of the new foundation “Smile 2 the End” that he and his doctors are creating. As Dr. Salkar said to the media today, much of oncology work is focused on treatment and chemotherapy and not enough on end-care quality of life. He hopes that Scott’s message will help change that. Beginning on Friday, Manipal Hospital will begin exhibiting enlarged prints of Scott’s original paintings in a show that will travel to other venues. Prints will eventually be for sale to benefit Smile 2 the End as well as a locally published book of Scott’s paintings. We had an excellent turnout today but we forgot to take pics of the 25 reporters that showed up to take pictures of us! Tomorrow afternoon a reporter from a Goan weekly will be following up with a human interest story, too. Thanks to the Goa Marriott Resort for providing refreshments and giving us the use of our room for the event.
