Many of these photos were taken while he was so terribly ill but yet he was always grateful to be alive!

My Son Phillip created this loving video of his many creations for me towards the end of his life. I cherish it always.

We honor Phillip's life and love of giving with The Phillip C. DeMars Foundation, Hope Through The Arts Program.

Phillip inspired many; Children, leaders at the SRF, family and friends with his love and caring nature.

​​During his many years in and out of Children's Hospital, he helped many children learn the joy of art. He felt helping kids gave his life meaning.

Phillip was diagnosed with Stage IV Sarcoma at age 18. He spent the next 4 years fighting for his life. He did this with strength, grace and Hope.
