The top pictures are the ones I delivered to Genesee Hurley Cancer Institute. They will hang them in the Chemo Clinic. I try to keep my artwork light hearted and positive.

The second set of pictures will be delivered to the VA – Ann Arbor Cancer Center. A friend I know has his infusions there and mentioned they would love to have a set so a set they will get.

My two favorites are Rosie the Riveter and the Wizard. It is a blessing to be able to gift these pieces of artwork to the cancer units. I hope this whimsical artwork puts a smile on the patients face while they are getting their treatments.

NOTE: The pink ribbon is for breast cancer. The lavender ribbon is for all types of cancer.

Amazing Brother

I have an absolute amazing brother! Bob went to a dealership to get some work done on his truck and during the two hour wait him and the receptionist (a 21 year old) started talking. He had his Kindle and she ask what it was and he explained that he downloaded books to read and also played games on it. She mentioned that her little boy would love that.

As they conversed he found out that she only made $11.00 an hour but only got 6 hours 3 or 4 times a week. She was a single parent and was struggling to make ends meet. She did not say this in a negative way – she told my brother she was very lucky to have such a good job and hoped that soon she would be able to pick up more hours.

When my brother’s truck was done he drove to Best buy and bought a Kindle and a 2 year warranty on it. He drove back to the dealership and gave her the Kindle. She cried, was shocked that he did this. She said she would pay him back and he said it was a gift.

Now that is what I call PAY IT FORWARD. My brother has always had a kind heart and this story proves it.

I am so lucky / proud to have such a loving brother.
