Hearts For Anna, a fundraiser for Anna Millea, opens today at 10 a.m. Central time and continues through Sunday, August 16. Anna is fighting breast cancer – again. The disease has returned aggressively and is now in her bones, requiring an extreme sixteen rounds of chemotherapy. She has no insurance, having been deemed uninsurable due to her “pre-existing condition.”
More than 100 miniature artworks, no larger than 5″ x 7″, have been donated to raise funds to assist Anna in her fight. The items will be sold first-come, first serve, with all items selling for $100 on Day 1, $75 on Days 2 – 4, and $50 on Day 5. All money will go to a fund that goes directly to Anna Millea to help pay for her medical bills.
I don’t know Anna, but I happily made and donated Morning Song. This could so easily happen to any of us. I just participated in my sixth ACS Relay For Life in celebration of my Dad being able to say, after colon cancer, “It’s 15 years and I’m still here.” I raise funds for the ACS in honor of my Dad, but welcome this opportunity to make a difference in one person’s fight.
UPDATE: Just saw a Tweet from Lisa, CEO of Artful Home, that buyers should create an account to expedite their bidding. I did so from the Wish List page from the main Artful Home page.
