fundraiser

I recently found out about a girl from my hometown who is going through tougher times than I could ever imagine. She has been battling a brain tumor for some time which seems to be getting worst. She and her husband were given approval by doctors to try to have a baby and not long after she found out she was pregnant she also found out her tumor was getting worst. You can read all about the story here.
She had the baby a few months early but the baby seems to be healthy and doing well! Now the mother is battling a brain tumor while the rest of her wonderful family have come together to help with her and the baby. Her husband seems to be a truly wonderful person as does the rest of her family.
I have been reading from their hospital journal online and every day I feel more and more helpless. This family is going through such a tough ordeal. Their home recently flooded so now they have that on top of medical bills and day-to-day expenses to worry about. I have been trying to figure out what I can do to help. I thought a fundraiser/art sale could be a nice way to help raise some money to go toward all their expenses.
I will put together a blog and set up a pay pal account for this as soon as I can get art together. If you are interested in donating a piece to this sale please contact me through email at Abeautifulparty {at} hotmail.com{dot} com.
I really just want to help out any way that I can. If you know someone who may also be interested tell them!
Thanks for your time.

Hey, I'm totally down with donating some of my work. I'm working on some 3-d stuff, too. Let me know the details. Recently, one of my best friends back home in Florida was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He had it removed a week ago, today. So, this is something that I def. wanna do. What a touching story...
