When the Laguna Art Lounge first instated itself in Laguna’s arts scene, it was Vanessa who helped execute our cultural mission to bring local artists to the forefront of our community.
Unfortunately, last October Vanessa learned news that would shock any woman: at the age of 30, Vanessa was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and Li Fraumeni Syndrome.
Vanessa has undergone chemotherapy and is currently completing other treatments as well. A double-mastectomy is scheduled for her in August, to be followed by reconstructive surgery.
Please help support Vanessa is this fight against Breast Cancer by joining us on this very special event with African Drum group Djembe Fusion
