Arabella Proffer Life With Terminal Cancer Fund

Artist, author, record label co-founder, and friend to so many: Arabella was first diagnosed with a rare form of sarcoma a decade ago. She has endured countless surgeries, procedures and tests since. Unfortunately, the sarcoma has returned with a particular vengeance, and this time it cannot be treated with surgery. Her diagnosis is terminal. She is receiving hospice-style palliative care to manage pain, and some radiation to shrink her tumors as much as is possible.

Despite all of this, she is still the same Arabella we know and love, and we want her to have the best possible experience she can during the time we have left with her. And while we don't know exactly how much longer that will be (although chances are good it will be less than a year), we would like to make sure Arabella and her husband Ben have money on hand to manage medical expenses such as deductibles, and to live on as Ben uses FMLA to care for her full time.

Any amount will help. You can also buy her books, drawings and paintings in her online shop or from the galleries that represent her.

Thank you for helping us take care of our beautiful friend. She has supported so many other artists, musicians and other creatives throughout her life, it's only fair that we all step up for her now.
