postheadericon Helping Mr Elric Collab.

Two designers , Scraps By Storm and Childress Imaging, 7 year old son was recently diagnosed with DIPG, a rare form of brain stem cancer for which there is no cure. They were first told he was stage 4 and only had 6 months to live. The tumors have effected the right side of his body, he has problems walking, can't use his right hand, his face droops down, and he can't eat by hisself.

They did some research on this form of cancer and found an experimental study being done at St.Jude. The doctors here say that with positive treatments Elric can live a long and healthy life . So they began their 1,000 mile journey to start Elric's treatments. The father was self employed and had to stop working so that way someone would be around to watch their youngest child, Kat 3 years old, while Elric goes through his treatments. They are to be at St Jude till sometime in mid December, so a bunch of us designers who were touched by Elric's story decided to make a collab for them to help them pay their bills while they are without income.
To find out more ways to help Elric's family in their time of need please go to his website at

To help support Elric we have made a facebook fan page for him where we will update everyone on his condition, and post pictures of his journey.

I have helped in this very special collab and this is my collab part

This collab is priced at just $4!!!
All the money goes towards this brave boy's recovery and to help find out other ways of helping this horrible cancer.
You can purchase this kit at

Please help if you can 30 kits for just $4 is so little but can help out so so much!!!
Big Thanks to everyone who has helped out so far!!
Hugs Laura
