I received two packages yesterday. One was from Howard and Sandra Tayler, and contained a spiffy Tagon's Toughs hat…


…as well as the original art Howard did for the Acts of Whimsy fundraiser in support of procuring genomic sequencing of my tumor. The video of him creating the art can be seen here.


And they were so kind to have it nicely framed for me! I love this art, but I think if I ever get out of this mess, I'll auction it off to benefit the charity of Howard and Sandra's choice.

Meanwhile, for reference, here's my spoof of Howard's artwork, which I did for my own Acts of Whimsy video.


You can clearly see why Howard is a prominent cartoonist and artist, while I am not.

Meanwhile, the folks at work sent me a very nice hoodie and hat with a "Cancer Sucks" theme. How terribly apropos. It's merch from the Choose Hope site.



My friends rock!

I guess it would be inappropriate for your job to send you a shirt that said "Fuck cancer." ;-)
