As you all know we had a great you caring fundraiser on instagram for Catherine earlier this year. We were short of hitting our goal of 10K. Catherine is still having treatments and is still dealing with the effects of having cancer. I know there is no way she has the energy before treatments to make art and a living. She has not asked me to do this but, I know she can use our help. If you can please do so, if you can't please share with your friends. xo
Catherine is a wildly talented dear artist friend of ours who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.
Taken from her own words -Its been a wild few weeks, with lots of tests, pokes, procedures, gross things installed in my body, surgeries and losing my hair. but I am figuring it out and will come back tougher from the experience.
Catherine is a self employed artist who owns Red Shoes Home Goods in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Her shop is currently closed due to her illness. The next few months are going to be a struggle financially paying for any and all expenses while she is having chemo.
Of course she would never ask for this to be done for her but, I know that things have been pretty hard lately and we artists, craftspeople, customers, friends and family want the best for Catherine and her family.
Do what you can and help us spread the word. xo
