Dr. Perkins' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Perkins "Christopher R. Perkins, MD For more than three decades Dr. Christopher Perkins has specialized in the treatment of Breast and Gynecological cancers, providing patients with the highest quality of care in an environment that promotes healing of body, mind, and spirit. His philosophy is to restore each patient to wholeness by combining evidence-based medicine, applied research, and hospitality-­inspired service. Dr. Christopher Perkins unique "Philosophy of Wholeness" reflects an approach to the treatment of cancer you won't find anywhere else. Art of Life Cancer Foundation Out of his deep compassion for his patients and a desire for them to address their cancer holistically, he founded The Art of Life Program. In this innovative program, cancer survivors become more aware of the interconnectivity of the body, mind, and soul in healing. Additionally, there is scientific evidence that art-based interventions are effective in reducing adverse physiological and psychological outcomes. In the Art of Life Program participants find a creative outlet through painting to courageously tell their story and process their cancer journey often resulting in a greater sense of hope. The Art of Life program links groups of participants with cancer to local artists to co-create works of art for public viewing. The art represents life in the midst of the cancer journey. For the many people involved, the result is life-giving transformation."
