30 Days of Artists: Olivia Moreno | Just Do It

Olivia MorenoOlivia Moreno has approached breast cancer like a true champion. After being diagnosed only six months ago, she decided to stay positive and accept the opportunities that have come from her diagnosis. True to the name of her art bra, when Olivia heard of the opportunity to participate in Art Bra Austin, she decided to go for it and become not only a model, but also an artist!

The inspiration for “Just Do It” was inspired by Olivia’s personal journey with breast cancer. Once when discussing her surgical options with a close friend, Olivia was advised, “Don’t think about it as waking up without a breast; think about it as waking up without cancer.” At these words, Olivia thought to herself, “Just Do It.” And that’s exactly what she did. Now months later, fitness and healthy eating has become a large part of her life. The art bra, like her mastectomy scar, represents Olivia’s courage and determination to do whatever it takes to stay alive and healthy in the face of cancer.
