Cancer Center gets support from local artist’s auction
Louisville-based sculptor, painter and author Doyle Glass is best known for his public bronze pieces honoring military heroes, such as the Medal of Honor Memorial in Louisville’s Jefferson Square. His latest collection, however, is personal.
Glass’s wife, Kim, was diagnosed with stage III breast cancer in July 2011. Now Glass is auctioning his paintings to fight cancer with proceeds going to the M. Krista Loyd Resource Center at the James Graham Brown Cancer Center. The center helps connect patients and family members with the services, information and support they need.
“The James Graham Brown Cancer Center has been vital in helping Kim win her battle against breast cancer,” Glass explained. “We will always be indebted to the fine professionals here. Now it is time for me to give back and hit cancer hard.”
