Help bring Brian's voice back!

Brian is a brilliant caricaturist who has drawn loving tributes of many familiar entertainers and stars (some of the lovely ladies he has drawn are shown in this picture from 3 + years ago).  As you can imagine, caricature drawing and teaching comic art does not pay many bills.

When Brian recently started having trouble swallowing and his voice started to fail, he wound up in a hospital for 4 weeks. 

The doctors diagnosed him with a paralyzed vocal cord and a non-cancerous mass in his throat--they did not know how to correct it or if he would recover. Because of this condition, he now takes nourishment through a tube in his stomach because any food or liquid he takes by mouth would go into his lungs.

When he heard the diagnosis, Brian knew he would no longer be able to do what he loved; teaching humor, art and comic book illustration at the Kubert School. 

Brian is a gentle giant with a heart of gold who needs to find a way to get back his voice, his career and his life.

He will soon be seeing bills for his health care deductibles which he cannot cover.  It would mean a lot to Brian to raise enough for his care, his rent and a cure.

Thank you for your help...
