Medical IssuesI have never in my life asked for financial help with anything. My husband and I have always paid for ourselves and our bills, no matter what.
But, since last July, when my husband was diagnosed with stage 4 renal cell carcinoma (kidney cancer), our medical bills have been mounting.
Tom is doing well on the chemo drug he has to take...doing well means the tumors have not grown. He will never be cured. That is impossible at this point..
His cancer is treatable until the cancer figures it's way around the drug, which it will eventually do. Tom worked through last season (he is a landscape gardener)
and he hopes to start working again this spring....but our bills are building. I am now working part time at the library in my town to help with expenses.
I have started this 'you caring' fundraiser in hopes that some money can be raised to help us with the ongoing bills.
If you are at all interested in helping out, that would be wonderful....or pass the li
Help an artist through difficult times?It's been a such a long time since I have last written a journal entry. I hesitated long whether I should write this journal at all, as I feel terribly awkward to ask for a favour...
May I come to the point directly: I have had a pretty tough year and I am left completely out of pocket... It is not that I was not busy, I have worked hard on some projects that did prove just not to be as fruitful as they had promised. I'm afraid that I am presently in dire financial straits. Right now, I have almost nothing to live on.
I wondered if I could appeal to anyone's generosity - in true Christmas spirit - to visit my print shop and make maybe a little purchase from it? I know the selection is poor, but I hope there might be something that will suit you, or maybe useful as a little Christmas present for loved ones. As alternatives to prints there are also mouse pads, mugs and coasters available on some of the images. I shall thank you humbly for your generous support.
I do have a little ETSY on
I need help :(Greetings DA association I hope that many will understand this aspirations and despair as a serious concern.I'm desperate,defeat after defeat and constant falls seem to be awards for us who are doing the best we can in every aspect of human and artistic expression here.I'll be very brief so I need every available assistance from all who care about me because it's time for community to get up and pressure all those who think the opposite.There is no justification for such failure because I keep trying to warn all members of this esteemed site about irregularitys which have long been presenthere,I lost a few really good friends because of that, they deactivate their profile because I believe that they are disgusted.I don't have to much energy right now for detailed explanations but thanks to some members here I have first-hand information they I can share with you.

Come buy, come buy..."

Ah, it's been a such a long, long time since I last prefaced a journal entry with a quotation. Does anyone remember those days? Are there even any watchers remaining from then?
I shall come to the point directly. I'm afraid to report that I am presently in dire financial straits. I have almost nothing to live on and am overdrawn on the bank by a sum which will leave me in anticipation of yet more debt in the coming months once it is paid off.
If I could appeal to anyone's generosity in visiting my print shop and making what little purchase you can from it, I shall thank you humbly and gratefully for your support. I know the selection is poor, but I hope there might be something that might suit you. Cards, mugs and magnets are also available on most o
