Review for Discovery Arts, Mission Viejo, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The first time I went to the annual Discovery Arts run, I was overcome with emotion. When you see a child who is battling a horrible disease dance to music, sing to a song, showcase an amazing piece of face art, you realize how for that one moment they have forgotten about their disease. I visited hospitals and the programs that Discovery Arts facilitates and saw smiles...and heard laughter...rather than crying or screaming. Marilyn Clements, the executive director, is an angel. She is an entertainer by profession but an angel day-to-day. Arts are so important in healing the world. And Discovery Arts does that one child at a time. I am so honored to have been a part of this organization. It's one of my most proud accomplishments...
