Normally when I post something here I use a good bit of tongue-in-cheek, but there are places and times to be serious as well. I also try to sprinkle in some more ‘art’ related postings every now and again, but for the most part we keep ourselves focused on the comic medium that we all know and love. However, today something ran across my inbox that I knew I had to share with everyone. As someone who has lost people in his life to breast cancer I feel as though everyone will appreciate this as it shows the kinder side of horror. Today the good people over at Fright-Rags.com revealed their design entitled “WE BELONG ALIVE”, a t-shirt designed specifically to help raise money to help a family battling to stay afloat as wife and mother of two small boys, Leisha, battles an aggressive form of breast cancer. Her husband lost his job last year, and as a result the family is fighting tooth and nail to keep going and pay Leisha’s medical bills. That’s where Ben Scrivens, Kristy Jett, and the rest of the people at Fright-Rags come in. 100% of all proceeds raised from the shirt will go directly to Leisha and her family. The tee will be available now through the rest of October, so if you want to look good while supporting a good cause then scroll down and find out how you can pick up one of these bad boys and help the horror community kick breast cancer’s ass! You can also make the jump and find more details on Leisha, her family, and the cause to help them this Halloween! Read on for the skinny!
“WE BELONG ALIVE” Is Available NOW On Fright-Rags.com Through The Month Of October! (MSRP-$19.95) About Leisha And Her Cause…
“I just wanted to take a moment to introduce you to my friend Leisha.
She is 34 years old, a mom to two young boys, and currently battling a
serious and aggresive breast cancer.
Over a year ago, her husband lost his job – and therefore they lost their insurance too. This is part of the reason why the cancer is so advanced- because no one would see her, to help her find out if something was really wrong. Leisha finally found some great doctors who would see her – and they helped her find a medical plan that would could help- but her battle is just beginning, and she’s struggled so much already.
Leisha started chemotherapy in May (you can see the shunt which delivers
the medication in the picture, on her chest, to her right)- and she has lost her hair, which you can see was quite long and beautiful. She still has a year left of treatment, and meanwhile her and her husband still face the challenge of paying their bills and taking care of their children.
So for the month of October, we will be selling this exclusive limited t-shirt –
and all proceeds will be donated to Leisha and her family.
Leisha’s wish is that everyone who might hear her story, never ever give up on seeking help and detecting the disease early with regular check ups, breast exams and if recommended, mammograms. Often times younger people can be dismissed by doctors or dismiss warnings themselves- believing that it is too soon to worry…it is never too soon to save your life!”
