I wish I were writing this morning to raise funds for an art project. Instead I'm writing to raise some funds for my wife's recent diagnosis.  A month ago Catharine started to experience chest pain and was admitted to the hospital, where they ran a barrage of tests.  They discovered a large tumour between her sternum and her heart and referred us to a thoracic surgery clinic.  After a couple more weeks of waiting, Catharine had a biopsy and yesterday we had the result:  Catharine has lymphoma and we are now referred (and yet again waiting) to be assigned an Oncologist at Princess Margaret Hospital.  The Oncologist will give us the status of how far her cancer has progressed and the treatment options.

While we are very fortunate to live in a country that has universal health care and world class Oncology, time off work for both of us is starting to leave our resources very thin.  If you work in the arts you know the financial reality of supporting your family on that income alone with minimal benefits.  The perception and reality of a photographer's lifestyle are miles apart.  With Catharine off work for an undetermined amount of time to undergo treatment (with myself needing to work but to also be available to support her at home and during treatments with the help and support of her loving family), we need to ask for a little help in exchange for prints/portraits.

The money raised will allow us to stay in our home which is minutes away from Princess Margaret hospital.  Also allowing me to support and provide for her during the process until we can get some stability back in our lives and i'm free to take on some more "traditional and consistant" employment.
