Fly Free

Our Fly Free program (for ages 4 – 18) aims to help young artists affected by cancer and other chronic illnesses gain a platform to showcase their work. We celebrate their journeys as artists and survivors and make sure that each and every young artist who participates stands in the spotlight. Aspiring models walk their first runway, singers perform on their first big stage, and artists show their work in galleries.

Fly Free launches our more mature artists into the New York City creative community as budding professionals. We connect them with established artists in their respective disciplines and provide them with information about grants, contests, publishers, and more.

Alumni of our Fly Free program have gone on to start their own bakeries, release singles, and have their art shown at New York’s premier galleries. Most importantly, we believe that the arts not only help children become cancer-free, but remain healthy and happy throughout their entire lives.
