Raffi Darrow, volunteer at My Hope Chest and Alisa Savoretti, founder of My Hope Chest and me, in front of my pieces at the show. For each sold print, I will donate $40 to this NPO, focusing on funding Breast Reconstruction surgery for uninsured breast cancer survivors. They are the ONLY national organization providing this "final step in breast cancer treatment"Many Thanks go to my Seeking Kali collaborator and friend William Evertson for printing, preparing the prints, shipping, traveling to the show, hanging the show, assisting in every thinkable way, documenting and all his and his wife Karen's support!!

Thank you Ria for your tireless activism and creative output. It was a joy and pleasure to document this exhibit featuring you, Branka and Betty. All of you are remarkable and inspirational women.

I'm glad you've said what so many of us feel, but somehow feel constrained to actually say in "polite society". You've reminded me that cancer is anything but "polite" and that sometimes imploite-ness is absolutely called for in order to raise $$$ to fight a heinous disease.
