Helping a friend!

My buddy Moose Baumann,  extraordinary colorist , is having some financial trouble at the moment and well... it's better if you here it form the man himself:

A few years back my wife had breast cancer. She had chemo and a partial mastectomy, and we thought things were good. A year later we found out that it had spread,  and she went in for more chemo and surgery. Several months prior she had lost her job and her insurance, and because of her "prior condition" she no one else would insure her. So we've been working on paying off the full cost of her medical bills for the past two years, just north of $90 grand.

Right now work is scarce and money is super tight, and on June 1st it looks like we may lose our home because of all of this. I'm trying to sell some prints of my work online to make some quick cash, and hopefully keep my home. I'm reluctant to ask for help, it's embarrassing, but I'm at the end of my rope. Would you please pass along my info, along with links to my work (below) and this email address, through your blogs, websites, Twitter and/or Facebook pages and help me get the word out? I would be eternally grateful. 

The prints themselves are gorgeous and relatively inexpensive. Now while I acknowledge that times are tight  and money is scare, is there a way we can help out. I know of one artist who is donating the proceeds of his original art to help Moose out. If you have a few shekels please consider buying a print and helping a good man in his time of need.
