Please help photographer Craig Morey

I recently learned that photographer Craig Morey (whose work is available
through Custom Erotica Source) has been diagnosed with cancer and is
facing some serious medical bills for his treatment. (As many of you
probably already know, our lovely health care system basically ignores
people who don't have full-time jobs and live by making art. ) Some
friends of his have organized an art show where he will be selling his
work at reduced prices to help pay for these medical bills. Here is the
announcement I received today -- I hope that you will come to the show and
do what you can to help. Craig is not only a talented photographer but a
wonderfully sweet person.

If you cannot attend but would still like to make a print purchase, please

* Earlier this year, Craig Morey was diagnosed with throat cancer and
began receiving both radiation and chemotherapy to combat this
life-threatening disease. Because of the severity of his treatments, Craig
was incapacitated for several months and is only now returning to his
photography work. As a self-employed artist, Craig has had little income,
and no disability or sick pay during this very difficult period.

Fortunately, the most recent evaluations by his doctors have been
favorable and Craig has a very good chance of recovery, and of keeping the
cancer in remission. Unfortunately, even with basic health insurance the
cost of treatment and Craig's medical bills are

The goal of this sale is to raise funds to help pay Craig's medical costs.
He will be offering both vintage fiber prints and new digital prints, with
prices ranging from 75.00 to 500.00. There will also be signed books and
posters available.

We hope you will join us on Sunday, December 18th to support Craig.
