This Saturday Nucleus gallery is hosting an art auction to benefit @charles_hu_3kicks and his wife Carrie. It’s not only a chance to get my work at about 75% off but also to contribute to a good cause. See below for more info. Link in bio.
A group of artists is hosting a silent art auction on March 18th 2017 at Nucleus Gallery. All proceeds will benefit Charles Hu’s wife, Carrie, who is suffering from Amniotic Fluid Embolism (AFE), a very rare childbirth emergency (1/80,000 births). AFE is when amniotic fluid enters the mother’s blood stream and triggers an allergy-like reaction, which resulted in cardio-respiratory collapse. Immediately after the AFE, Carrie suffered the second phase of a condition known as Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC) which caused abnormal blood clots to occur throughout her body while leading to massive blood loss elsewhere. 73 bags (300cc/bag) of blood transfusion was used to keep her alive. Carrie had suffered a series of strokes that will affect her speech, vision, and hand-eye coordination which the doctors believe can be re-learned over long-term physical therapy and intensive treatment. While they are optimistic that she will eventually make a recovery, they are expecting a long road to rehabilitation which will prevent her from getting back to her normal life and providing for her family in the coming years.
Both Charles and Carrie have made a difference in the art community. We would like to give back by creating this fundraiser to help pay for their hospitals bills, neurological rehabilitation, physical rehabilitation, speech therapy, and help to take care of their newborn and their two and a half year old boy. We would appreciate any help to get them through this very difficult period.
