Meet Art. In the late aughts, things were not going well for Art Sims (@chatdaddy1 ). After losing work during the downturn in the economy, Art received even more devastating news: he had #leukemia . Unsurprisingly, his #cancer #diagnosis came as quite a shock for this "man about town." But despite the physical, emotional, and financial toll his leukemia diagnosis placed on his life, Art maintained his signature positivity, something he credits for helping him through treatment.
Now, years later, Art is in #remission , and he's made it his goal to not only spread awareness about cancer and the Americans with Disabilities Act, but live his life to the fullest.
Cancer Wellness magazine followed Art around his beloved South Side and Hyde Park in Chicago for our latest "Spotlight" video series. From a laughter-filled lunch at the Sophy Hotel (@sophyhotel ) to a snowy-filled night in the studio at @wvon1690 , Art proves life #postcancer is full of heart, hope, and joy. - 17 hours ago
