I didn’t need breast cancer awareness month to remind me how many women face this difficult diagnosis. During 2010, I have had far too many friends diagnosed with breast cancer. Most are doing very well, but sadly I lost a dear friend last week after a long and graceful fight. She was the first person to commission me to make work for her home in New York City.

Thinking about this I looked through my work to find something to donate for a friend’s fundraiser. Fittingly, I have donated the drawing, Wonder Woman, to be auctioned at Pink Bohemia, a celebration of the arts in honor of Renee Heidtman who is living with stage 4 breast cancer. All proceeds contribute to the payment of Reneeā€™s treatment and recovery. For more information or prize donations call 415-681-HEAL.
