About the auction: All proceeds from this auction
will go to Bridget Zinn and Barrett Dowell. Bridget was diagnosed with
stage 4 colon cancer in February 2009. After receiving treatment in
Portland for 18 months, Bridget and her husband Barrett are now
traveling to Phoenix for one week every month for innovative treatment
at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America. Not all of their costs for
this promising treatment are covered by insurance. Bridget &
Barrett’s friends and family are rallying to help them pay the bills so
that they can focus on Bridget’s health and kick cancer. Artists,
authors, and other friends and acquaintances have donated items in the
spirit of love and hope. Link to Bridget’s blog.
What I donated: Here are the details on the cards, prints and recipe cards featuring my art.
