Benefit and Auction for Quinn Justman

Nearly a year ago, my niece Adrienne's husband Quinn was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer.  And over this past year he has undergone a variety of treatments to prolong his life.  Despite the generosity of doctors volunteering their time, the couple has accumulated a significant amount of medical expenses and debt.

Our family has conspired to put on a benefit and auction on October 17th to help defray a bit of their expenses.  Both Adrienne and Quinn were art majors at Univ. Wisconsin - Stout and will hopefully be putting a few of their works up for auction as well as some of their friends and local artists.  

My sister Nancy has started a website and blog to keep those interested up to date with the benefit news, as well as, images and descriptions of auction items.  If you are interested in donating a work of art to the auction or purchasing  something from the auction please let us know.  

You can also follow Quinn's treatments and such on his Caringbridge site.
