78-year old Peter Rinaldi displays his art created by engaging in Art Therapy at University Hospital's Case Medical Center.

According to Rinaldi "(Art) gives me not only inner strength, but physical motivation to persevere beyond my body's weaknesses due to illness and side effects from treatment. ... When I am making art, I become very focused on what's in front of me. Concerns and issues I have seem to drop into the background. ... (Art) picks my brain for better thoughts and allows me to tuck the pain away."
