While you were sleeping I have been active in booting out some spammers along with the posts they tried to sneak past me

Eth Nat Yirg Idido roasted yesterday. I dropped some off at a friends coffee shop. In a few days he will brew it and tell me what he thinks. We believe my roasts are better than what we buy.

Life After Cancer: The Art of Survival
Life After Cancer: The Art of Survival

Tucson, AZ – Karen Kovach Klay fought aggressive breast cancer last year but realized her real fight has just begun.

You endure months of chemo and multiple surgeries only to be warned cancer could come back any time. You shelve your livelihood while struggling for your life. You think you beat cancer but now confront the threat of its return and aftermath of crushing debt. The battle has just begun.

After years of channeling creativity into stunning artworks, Arizona artist Karen Kovach Klay never imagined her life would come so abruptly unraveled. She had a normal mammogram early 2014 but found a lump herself 90 days later. Then the totally unexpected diagnosis of Triple Negative HER2 breast cancer, the same rare, aggressive type revealed by celebrity Joan Lunden. No art exhibits, awards, sales or income the rest of 2014 - still none.

With bone pain, chemo-induced “brain fog” and endless procedures behind her, she envisions her ultimate survival will be regaining the strength to do what she and her husband do best: their collaborative Southwest-inspired art. The next challenge is overcoming debt from medical bills and accumulated living expenses. While she musters the stamina to build art while re-building her life, she faces this insidious and microscopic cancer’s reappearance – and more bills.

Karen’s experience could also save your life. She had NO prior history, and begs you NOT to rely on annual medical tests. Anything suspicious should be seen by a doctor. Three friends took her advice; two were diagnosed with cancer. This is real, scary, and could happen to anyone.

For Karen to survive through her art, there is a crowdfunding

page on

“Karen’s Cancer Journey: Help Her Save Lives”


Alternate ways to donate:

Wells Fargo: “Karen Kovach Klay Cancer Fund” any branch in person w/account name

SurePay online w/“Karen Klay” & email, [email protected]

PayPal w/email, [email protected]

More than a million people contributed over $100 million on GiveForward with 99 cents of every dollar going to the people in need.

Karen, her husband and their mixed media art may be seen at the 45th Annual Scottsdale Arts Festival on March 13-15, 2015, their first exhibit since cancer struck.
