We are rolling out the second fundraising auction for Keegan.  I've teamed up with Nock Nock,(Willys Log Furniture) who is one of our sponsors on here to bring you this Item.   It's an 11x14 print of mine that I have married  up with one of Nock Nock's great rustic log frames.   The two items are on opposite sides of the state, so I'll attach a photo of the frame Nock Nock has put together and the photo that has been enlarged.  Of course there won't be a watermark in the middle of it. 

If you haven't heard Keegan's story, here is a bit of background from Karl Blanchard

"Keegan Wilder is not your typical 7th grader.  He's a hardened mountain mule deer hunter.  Though he's a little small in stature,  he has the heart of a lion and is just as fierce!  He had been feeling a faint pain for a few months but nothing that would have caused concern.  Almost felt like a pulled muscle.  He asked to be taken into the urgent care because he was having a hard time breathing without any pain.  He was immediately referred to Seattle Children's where the family was given the devasting news after several blood tests, xray, and ultrasounds that he indeed had cancer.  The mass is quite large behind his rib cage growing towards his lung.  He had surgery within one day where they biopsied the mass to determine the exact kind of cancer (so they know what appropriate treatment to provide for that type of cancer) and also placed a port for his chemotherapy.

He recently had to have his port moved which involved a second surgery.  He is having a difficult time keeping weight on so a feeding tube has been placed to help him get the calories he needs. 

Keegan is the toughest kid you will ever meet.  From the age of 5 he has been chasing his dad and I into some of the toughest mule deer country the west has to offer.  His first deer at age 10 was over 7 miles into the Idaho backcountry.  Even though he is on round 5 of chemo and very weak, he is always smiling. 

Keegan and family still have a tough road ahead of them and can use our support.  Life can be so cruel and no child should ever have to go through what Keegan has.  Let's help make this dark time a little brighter."


All funds of this auction will go to Keegan's family. Payment will be via paypal or personal check. I will pm the details to the winning bidder when that time comes. This auction will run until 5pm on Tuesday evening.  I know its Christmas time and alot of people are with families.  I no way want to interfere with that.   Thank you all!

I can only hope this brings as much spirit as the last auction.  If you havent seen that, here is a link to that thread,
