Ryan Hintze, 7, examines a tile Tuesday at the Greater Pittston YMCA in a display called ‘Tiles: From Tears to Triumph.’ It features replications of ceramic tiles painted by area cancer survivors, their friends, families and caregivers through an art therapy program hosted by the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute. The institute created the display to answer the question of what a single image capturing what a cancer survivor’s experience of emotional highs and lows would look like. The display was unveiled in 2010 and has traveled to treatment centers, hospitals and other locations in Luzerne County. It will remain at the Greater Pittston YMCA through the end of June.
