Elena Chalk  Elena Desserich 

The Cure Starts Now’s history is rooted in the arts. When the founders of Cure Starts Now’s daughter Elena was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, her outlet became drawing. Her painting “I Love You” was installed in the Cincinnati Art Museum beside her hero Pablo Picasso. That very painting became the charity’s very first fundraiser and now serves as the inspiration to The Cure Starts Now Logo. The Cure Starts Now is so proud to bring art back into the charity’s events through this street chalk art exhibition in memory of Elena and all the children battling cancer.
