Lynne's Dragonflies - Fundraising For My Friends Cancer Treatment

POST UPDATE:Sadly Lynne lost her battle and we said goodbye to her in a beautiful celebration of life at Little Fistral beach in April. I want to thank everyone who helped out in any way with this fundraising effort. I have donated the funds raised to another fundraiser of a similar nature. Fly high dragonfly Xx

Just before Christmas my lovely friend Lynne was told that she has inoperable pancreatic cancer. The response from her family and friends in raising money to pay for her upcoming wedding, her treatment and anything else she needs has been incredible but more help is needed.

There is a fundraising page here telling you a little about Lynne's story and the treatment she has opted for.

Lynne's fundraising friends have dubbed themselves her 'Dragonflies'. I wanted to find a way to help with the efforts and so I am creating a series of Dragonfly collages to donate. Some of the money from the sale of the originals will go towards getting some cards printed to raise further funds. Lynne did suggest that I only donate a percentage but I wouldn't feel right making a bean out of this so she will get the lot.😉

Since meeting on our first day of university this girl has become an incredibly important thread in the tapestry of my life, she is loved by so many and we aren't going to give her up without a fight. We also happen to share a beautiful niece, my little muse who features regularly in my work.
