Calling all Artists Worldwide to fight Cancer, the Sick Disease that has Attacked One of Our Own.
Hello, my name is Sean Gallagher, a few months ago, a friend of ours, MAD kd esc nsf wh, co-founder of The Infamous Magazine was rushed to the hospital with severe pain. Only to find out that his spleen had ruptured. During the operation to remove his spleen, cancer was found in multiple spots in MAD’s body. He currently has Stage 4 Cancer and is receiving chemo-therapy to try and fight this fight.
MAD is a self-employed artist with no insurance nor workmans compensation, and is in a major financial situation. He currently has over a quarter-million dollars in medical bills, and has to pay cash for his medications. Some medications cost upwards of $300. for a weeks supply, not even to mention the mans stress to make his rent and keep his lights on. MAD is currently in a situation that I would not wish on my worst enemy, and will try my hardest to make his hardships as light as possible.
MAD is not only an asset to the Philadelphia graff scene but has paid his dues worldwide. I’ve witnessed MAD sacrifice money and time, issue after issue to release each copy of the Infamous Magazine. A magazine that he does, not for the money, but for the love of the graffitti scene worldwide.
Due to these unfortunate circumstances, me and members of the KD, NSF, and ESC crews will be putting together a few things to try to drum up some monies for him. Here are ways you can help.
1. “Stickers & Sketches”—I am asking for artists across the globe to send me hand drawn stickers, sketches, blackbook pages, and anything else you think that would help that I could for a reasonable nominal value. I will be putting up a bigcartel site where people will be able to support the cause and buy packs of stickers, sketches, and blackbook pages. Among any other donations.
2. “Paintings, Prints, & Photographs”—On May 1st, I will be auctioning off all of the pieces donated in seperate auctions on eBay, with all reserveres set to sell.
3. “Monetary Donations” If you would like to simply donate a few of your hard earned dollars, you could send a check, or send to a paypal link, which will be live and available shortly.
Please consider supporting a great cause, and thank you for your time.
I will be accepting donations as soon as you can send them, once we get enough stickers and sketches, the bigcartel site will be up and ready to help MAD fight this viscious fight.
