Why am I encouraging you to buy one of our paintings or one of my photographs?
Stories about children or young people with cancer tend to make newspaper headlines, as they are often the cases which are the most shocking. Fortunately, getting cancer at a young age is rare.
However, 1 in 2 people will get cancer in their lifetime. One of the main reasons for this being that people are living longer. Half of all cancers are in people over the age of 70.
Getting older doesn’t mean you will definitely get cancer but the chances increase the longer you live.
Both Pam and I have had cancer. Fortunately, we have survived, not everyone is so lucky.
We are thankful to Associations like AECC for the work they have done to improve survival rates.
The painting club here in Bigastro is not asking you to simply donate to AECC, we are offering you the chance to own an original piece of art in exchange for your money.
In case you haven't seen them. the paintings and photographs are in the Sala Polivalente. To own one and make a donation to this worthwhile cause, please contact Jose Julian on +34 620 25 63 67.
