After two months of suffering from a tenacious headache, Chris Lategan was told he had brain tumour.
He underwent surgery and while lying on hospital bed Lategan had an idea to start painting children’s wards with bright pictures.
Chris Lategan later started an organization called Painting It Forward, a project aimed at painting children wards in hospitals.
Listen to the full conversation on The Pippa Hudson Show:
I was moved from neurosurgeon ward to endocrine ward and they had to push me through the children ward and I noticed that the walls were just in terrible shape, it looked like a horror movie.— Chris Lategan, founder of Painting It Forward
I went back to the hospital and had a chat with their media liaison … so we started by painting ward 7G and afterwards it was such a big success.— Chris Lategan, founder of Painting It Forward
