This fundraiser is closed

Our friend Mike Amann is fighting stage 4 neuroendocrine cancer like a freak. And we're here to help him! Not because he needs us, nope.... because WE NEED HIM. And it's time for us to show him just how much.

We need his talent, his vision, his spirit and his friendship. We just need him. We need him to fight. We need him to be inspired. We need him to believe in hope and prayer and faith and science and laughter and loyalty and love. He’s our friend, and we need him.

And, sure, Mike is already the Badass of The BLDG, the Curator of Covington, the Conscience of Ludlow, the Savant of the Screen Print, the Daddy of Little Kaizer and the Lucky Guy Who Landed Lesley. So while it seems like he's got it all, he needs us now more than ever...

Mike is leaving no stone unturned in his fight to beat the crap out of cancer. But, as you can imagine, the burden of medical bills can be a beast. Please donate here or send a check payable to: Amann Family Benefit Fund, 49 Kenner St., Ludlow, KY 41016.

Join us in supporting Mike, financially and spiritually and emotionally... And post support for Mike here on Facebook at

You may see the name "Jeff Warman" when donating. Jeff is one of the "Friends of Mike Amann" who set up this account. Since we are not able to be an official 501(c) non-profit organization (because the donations are going to an individual family), we needed an individual to manage the YouCaring & Paypal account that is directly connected to the Amann Family Benefit Fund account at Huntington Bank. Jeff is that individual. Any other questions, feel free to contact us at or or through the Posters&Prayers Facebook page.

After his courageous fight with cancer, Mike passed on November 10. We thank you so much for all your support of the Amann family and ask that you please continue to participate in this fundraiser to help them in their time of need.

Below is a tribute to Mike from the "Posters & Prayers" facebook page:

We needed Mike. And, wow, we were so lucky, so unbelievably blessed, to get him. We got Mike the artist, the entrepreneur, the curator, the badass, the warrior, the man. We got Mike the brother, the father, the husband, the son, the gracious and loyal friend. We wanted more time, but Mike gave us enough to last a lifetime.

We needed him. We got him. And we'll never forget what he taught us. How to believe, create, respect, inspire and fight with supreme courage and dignity. We are all better, stronger and more inspired because of him.

Even as he was battling cancer like the warrior he was, he was working to make our community better. Adding art and spirit, building a truly unique business, inspiring communities to have vision, sharing an unbreakable love with the magnificent Lesley, and raising a baby boy to smile with such light that he'll brighten the darkest days.

We needed Mike. But he was needed more another place. A better place. Well, it's better now, for sure. Mike has already started adding color and life. He's taken Juno on a walk, looking for the next great cloud to add a mural, or maybe a pair of antlers. Tomorrow, wear a Reds shirt or doodle something funny, definitely have a taco and a beer for Mike. Then, look to the sky. Look for beauty and light. And let it make you smile. Because Mike is there.

We love you, brother. And we'll miss you forever.

We want to thank everyone who has donated so far, and we encourage you to please spread the word about supporting the Amann Family! Mike and Lesley (and lil' Kaizer) are extremely appreciative and humbled by the outpouring of love! So let's keep it going and really make 'em feel it even more!!!

And if you're in the Cincinnati area, tonight is our Posters & Prayers fundraising event at Arnold's downtown starting at 6 pm. It's going to be a wonderful night celebrating incredible art and an even more incredible family. See you there!
