A friend of mine who is a cancer survivor runs online auctions of items donated to her. Last year a print of mine raised over $1,000 for her charity. While I do not expect the same results here, I thought I would offer a special print of mine for people to bid on to raise funds for my Relay for Life team in support of cancer research by the American Cancer Society.
The print is called, Bridge of Hope…
Bridges to me symbolize a journey one takes to get from one place to another. In the case of someone fighting cancer, the journey is long and full of obstacles. Bridges are held up by pillars. For a cancer survivor those pillars are the people who love and support them and the doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals who do what they can to cure them. The goal is to complete the journey to the other side of the bridge. The journey often does not end as we’d like but some do bringing hope to all. The waterfall is another symbol…for me it is the enduring human spirit. In whatever you see of the print offered above, please, consider placing a bid.
