Regina Holliday began creating a mural protesting the healthcare system 6 days after her husband Fred died. She and Fred both believed the system failed him in his fight against kidney cancer. "It's a wonderful therapy and relief to get to paint," said Holliday. "To get to do this has been a wonderful dialog with the public. I mean, people often come over here. They look at the mural. They want to talk about it and they often share their health stories."
The note in Fred's hand states "Go after them, Regina, Love, Fred." Symbolism in the mural includes a clock with no hands (normal time seems suspended in a health emergency), a nurse at a computer with the dark screen (records not shared with patients), and a doctor with her hands tied (miscommunication in the healthcare system). No matter what you may think about healthcare legislation, there is no denying Holliday's voice or her husband's story.
