Auction for Childhood Cancer: Gray Malin Framed Art

This Auction is for a small framed print from Gray Malin’s “a La Plage” series

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. On May 16, my life was changed forever when my 22 month old was diagnosed with Leukemia. Just 4% of the billions of government dollars spent annually on cancer research goes toward treating childhood cancer and as a mom to a toddler going through treatment, I wanted to do something to help other children and families going through this. All children are worth so much more than 4%. We need better funding, better treatment options, and a cure.

I started a fundraiser with the goal of raising funds for research and to help other families, and am teaming up with some of my favorite brands to auction a few items.

Where the money goes:

We are a part of our oncologist’s study and are donating 3/4 of all funds will go directly to our doctor’s pediatric cancer research. This is not something we will benefit from personally, but the goal is to do what we can to improve things for children who are diagnosed in the future. The other 1/4 will go directly to families who need financial support.

I love Gray’s work and actually just ordered a piece from one of our favorite places we visited on our honeymoon! It’s going to have the perfect home in my new office right above my desk. Thank you for your generosity, Gray!
