My story

[p]Hello, kind reader![/p] [p]You may be overly familiar with the story but just in case, here are the condensed highlights:[/p] [p]I got Leukaemia, age 21[/p] [p]Got treated for 2 and 1/2 years[/p] [p]Threw up a bit [/p] [p]Received help from charities ([b]TEENAGE CANCER TRUST, MACMILLAN and THE YORKSHIRE CANCER CENTRE[/b] etc)[/p] [p]Got cured![/p] [p]Did some paintings ( which can be seen at [url=http://www.alfiecarpenter.com/]www.alfiecarpenter.com[/url] )[/p] [p]Sold paintings at the hospital (St James', Leeds) as a fundraiser for aforementioned charities.[/p] [p]Of the 59 paintings, just one large whopper remains. It is now living permanently at the hospital as a kind of souvenir; an emblem of anti-cancer![/p] [p]Together with a little plaque (not the toothy kind!), all 1.8m2 of the painting hangs with pride outside Endoscopy in the Bexley Wing (see photos). The piece is entitled [b]'In your element[/b]' and its mission is to bring hope to whoever may clap eyes on it: patients, visitors, nurses, drs, cleaners, porters, volunteers and so on...[/p] [p]I would love to raise the £1000 it would have generated had it sold but I realise this is a very tough ask. I am also aware of the tremendous support I have already received at the exhibition but any contribution is a win and will not only allow people to view art in the hospital but it'll give extra support to those going through cancer RIGHT NOW, PEOPLE![/p][p][span=color: #ff0000;][b]**If you would like to donate then I will enter you into a RAFFLE with the chance to win an original mini artwork which I'll paint for you!****[/b][/span][/p] [p]TCT, Macmillan and the YCC continue to help smooth out the rough ride of a cancer diagnosis, which can seem especially rough for a young person. For instance, the young adult ward i was treated on is funded by TCT and my experience would have been considerably worse had it not existed. Not every region is lucky enough to have these facilities, but the goal is for there to be 28 units nationwide by 2020 which will provide access for young adults in every corner of the country.[/p] [p]If you'd like to know more about my experiences and how these charities helped me and many of my friends, let me guide you to this video i made back in the day.

Needless to say, I massively appreciate all your beautiful support of the exhibition, this is just like a bonus round![/p] [p]Love, peace and good health,[/p] [p]All my thanks,[/p] [p][/p] [p]Alf x[/p] [p][/p] [p][/p] [p][/p] [p][/p] [p][/p] [p][/p] [p][/p] [p][/p]
