CU Students Create Moving Installation For Youth Lymphoma Awareness

 

A group of CU students will launch a campaign to raise awareness for youth lymphoma this week. Lymphoma is a type of blood cancer that weakens the immune system and is the most common type of cancer among youth and young adults. While most people recover, young adults often dismiss early warning signs, which can lead to a delayed diagnosis and treatment.

To raise awareness, CU senior Keleigh Andrus, artist Evelyn Kiehfus and a team of CU students created the #ThroughIt campaign that features an interactive art installation which, they hope, students won’t be able to ignore.

KGNU’s Rossana Longo-Better spoke with Andrus about the campaign.
