Today I am having a Black Friday Blaze Orange Book Benefit where all signed books are $30 and $10 from every book will be donated to my mother who is still battling cancer. If you would like to donate directly to her cause, or in addition to the book benefit, you can do so by using the donation button at the bottom of the page below. Thank you for your continued support of my book and a cause that is so personal to my family. Contact me for your books.
My mother has been diagnosed with a rare form of kidney cancer. She went to the hospital after her back pain became more severe and she was informed of a large mass around her kidney. Long story short, she was on chemo, had a very major surgery to remove most of the mass, went on chemo again, and was accepted into an experimental cancer treatment program. During this time she also found that she actually has two variants of a rare form of kidney cancer, not just one. Do you want to know more? All of her personal stories, information, and thoughts can be read on her blog Rearranging Reality. All of this has drained on her in many ways but she has been very strong and positive, but she needs your help. There are multiple ways you can help if you want.
- Donations of money, gas cards, or items for the benefit on November 2nd will all help greatly.
- Commenting on her blog (links below) and showing support.
- I will be doing Portraits for a Cause Sunday October 27th. Details below.
- You can attend the Benefit at the VFW Club on Starr Ave. in Eau Claire, WI on Saturday November 2nd. Details below.
Next Sunday October 27th I will be doing Portraits for a Cause at Banbury Place (800 Wisconsin St, Eau Claire, WI 54703) by the white goose from 2pm to 4pm. Everyone that donates $20 will get their own vintage portrait by me that says “I Donated”. All you need to do is show up, give me 5 minutes of your time, and you get a Facebook ready image and a digital file that you can print up to a 5X7 size. (includes print release) If you make a $20 donation for your portrait before Sunday, I will upgrade that 5X7 digital file up to an 8X10 digital file that you can keep. (includes print release) Families and couples get a discount. First vintage portrait $20 donation and all others are only a $10 donation.
