Noe began working at Ampersand Art Supply in March of 2011. He immediately put to use his background in paint spraying, and became the main producer of Ampersand's Scratchbord. For the last six years, Noe has been the company's main creator of the premium Scratchbord surface, taking pride in every piece.
In July, Noe was diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer. He is undergoing chemotherapy and is already on his eighth treatment. Despite early positive results, the cancer has recently become more aggressive and he begins more intense chemo in the coming weeks.
He remains optimistic, but Noe has been unable to work since July. He is relying on minimal disability payments and the kindness of his co-workers and community to pay his bills. The hardest part is that he's basically alone in Austin. Noe's entire family is in Guatemala, with the exception of his daughter Jasmine, who depends on him every day. Noe struggles through his cancer primarily alone, with some help from friends who come by and look after him.
During this time of giving, we ask for your support for our friend Noe. Your donations will help with his mounting medical bills and day-to-day expenses. We realize there are many deserving individuals who need help, but Noe's situation is urgent. Any amount is truly appreciated. Let's pull together in our capacity for kindness and make this difficult situation a more bearable one for Noe!
Thank you so much.
