A Plea For Help

Note: the below information also went out in my newsletter. You can donate directly by clicking on the button below or you can shop for a print by clicking on the link at the bottom. The family is thankful for any help!!

Recently, the 7 month old baby of some friends of ours named Malea contracted bacterial meningitis. This is a serious and possibly fatal illness that affects the outer lining of the brain and is contagious mostly through contact with saliva. Malea is a wonderful, happy baby and her condition was so serious that she needed to be airlifted to Doernbecher's Hospital in Portland. She is now facing the amputation of one of her feet, blisters all over her body, and at least another month in the hospital not to mention possible future complications. The family is financially not in a place to afford all of the medical bills, travel and hotel stays in Portland.

For the rest of this month (thru June 30th), 100% of the proceeds from the sale of all of the prints and notecards available on the 'prints' page of Peter's website will go directly to the family for financial support. You can also donate directly to any Wells Fargo branch in Albany, OR care of The Malea Fox family.

Please post this print sale on Facebook and forward this newsletter to as many friends and family as possible who may want to help.
