I'm so grateful to have been given the opportunity to spend time with and create a portrait of one of Australia’s leading brain cancer specialists, Associate Professor Helen Wheeler, Medical Oncologist, who has devoted her life to treating brain cancer patients.
She is part of a highly regarded, eminent team of brain cancer specialists at Royal North Shore Hospital and North Shore Private Hospital. Her passion for her work and commitment to her patients came through so clearly during the time I spent with her.
A/Prof Wheeler also donates her time pro bono as a Director of the charity The Brain Cancer Group, Care2Cure, which supports brain cancer patients through programs established under the 3 Pillars of Research, Education and Support.
I’ve had the pleasure of supporting this charity by donating prizes to the White Pearl Foundation for its 2019 Ball and 2020 Breakfast for Brain Cancer.
Thank you A/Prof Wheeler. It’s an honour to have created this portrait and spend time with you.
