The Beauty of Healing Through Art
Bobby Ferro was diagnosed with a brain tumor at age 17. Following numerous surgeries and radiation, Bobby graduated from high school and college and received a master’s degree in clinical and mental health counseling. Despite progression of his disease, and additional surgeries and treatments, Bobby worked in mental health/addiction counseling, a career he loved, primarily supporting the poor and disadvantaged. Refusing to let his disease define him or defy him, he lived life to the fullest, travelling the world, advocating for and helping the homeless, inspiring many, and using painting and photography as a way to express the beauty he saw around him. Bobby believed deeply in diversity and inclusivity, treating everyone he met with respect and acknowledging their worth and beauty. At age 27, Bobby passed away from glioblastoma. His mother, Alysia Baldwin Ferro, has worked at Johnson & Johnson for more than 30 years, mainly in Regulatory Affairs in various therapeutic areas. Honoring Bobby and the full and productive life he lived, she is proud to share his work with Janssen for inclusion in its global art collection.
Still Life 1998
Susan Davis was a self-taught artist whose work included magazine and book illustrations, formal oils, murals, detailed watercolors and highly evocative pastel drawings. Over the course of her career that spanned more than twenty-five years, Susan produced a broad and highly acclaimed body of work. Her June, 1998 retrospective exhibition was eagerly received and was held over through September due to the enormous response. In August of 1997, Susan was stricken with a malignant brain tumor. The effects left her right side — her painting arm — paralyzed, but it did not dim her spirit nor deter her from practicing her art. Although this work is decidedly different from earlier work, it is lit by the same honest joy, painterly skill, and highly refined color sense which made her work both recognizable and beloved. After a valiant struggle against the disease, Susan Davis died on December 20, 1999. She lives on in her daughter, Jamie Barkin, and in the heart of her husband, Robert Barkin.
