Artist Chris Thornley (aka Raid71) was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago and in response created a fundraising site called Art V Cancer that sells his art posters to benefit cancer research.

Art V Cancer is run by Chris Thornley (aka Raid71 the illustrator) & Julia Hall.

A couple of years ago our life, and our family’s lives were turned completely upside down when Chris was diagnosed with a very rare incurable non hodgkins lymphoma at the age of 37.

The first thing we thought of is death, cancer = death. But having lived for these years with cancer the first thing we can say is cancer doesn’t mean the inevitable; We soon discovered that there are over 200 differnt types of cancer and that most cancers are treatable, manageable and in some cases curable. More and more people can survive cancer but there is still a long way to go.

By buying a poster from Art V Cancer, we promise to donate all profits (only a small amount will be used to pay for posting and packaging etc.) to charities researching cancer cures and supporting those who are learning to survive cancer.
