Fortunately, her parents Molly (a Doctor) and Ron are making sure she is receiving the best treatment available. Of course, not everyone is so fortunate. We hope our family will be able to celebrate Christmas with her this year, marking the one year anniversary of  her diagnosis. Though far away, she knows my family is praying hard for her swift recovery and count ourselves blessed whenever we get a chance to be with her.

But I know, praying isn't enough. It is my desire to do whatever I can to move the needle in this world. How sad it is that we often become advocates when an issue effects us personally. For me, I advocate for survivors and for the prevention of CSA. I advocate for ideas politicians who support the needs of all the people. Through the Quench Project, I advocate for children in Haiti and places where children need help the most, such as those suffering on the border. And, of course, as a creative, I advocate that people find a way into the creative fray, or at least surround themselves with meaningful, inspiring people and things. For me, creativity has been crucial to my very survival.

These missions are driven by a deep need to make a difference in the world, particularly for the next generation of children, no matter how tiny that difference might be. Now, I have become an advocate for children suffering from Leukemia. Please join me in this mission. In fact, I invite you to make this your mission too. If more people acted on their convictions, we could eradicate so many problems in the world.

A portion of the profit from the sale of Giclees and Artist Proofs will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  I am making 10 giclees and 10 APs available for this cause. Today is Giving Tuesday, BTW.

If you'd rather donate directly, I invite you to participate in this fundraiser by donating here.

Invest in The Quench Project
A portion of the sale of artwork (originals and reproductions) from The Quench Project Collection will be donated to The Bread of Life Orphanage in Haiti and/or other direct charitable causes (The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, in this case) where the money will have an immediate and powerful impact on raising the quality of life in places where people are struggling to overcome adversity. You will have a visual reminder and symbol of the indominable human spirit to overcome adversity that will inspire you to become your best self and remind you that you are part of making the world a little better than you found it.
