Artist Jeannine Dailey poses in front of the mural she painted in the pediatrics clinic lobby in the Ruppert Health Center.

As Jeannine Dailey finishes the mural that spans the walls of The University of Toledo Medical Center’s Pediatric Clinic in the Ruppert Health Center, it seems fitting that the beauty she’s created for kids and families comes from having successfully conquering the results of a disease normally associated with children.

On Thursday, May 31, at 7 p.m. in the Ruppert Health Center on UT’s Health Science Campus, Dailey will unveil her mural and share her remarkable story.

After catching chickenpox as an adult and having part of her brain removed, Dailey was expected to live the rest of her life in a nursing home.

Instead, working with the Ohio Rehabilitation Services Commission, Goodwill Industries and the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business Development Center, Dailey has her own business, Visions Murals LLC.

“I always wanted to open a mural-painting business, and this new program is allowing my dreams to come true,” Dailey said at Vision Murals’ launch celebration in August last year.
