Help Vickie Mapes Williams Take Her Final Journey

Donation protected
This is a fundraiser to send Vickie Mapes Williams and her husband Chris on a journey to see the only 2 states she has yet to visit.

Vickie Mapes Williams, who can justifiably claim to have advanced in large and small ways, the careers of numerous female artists, has been diagnosed with Small Cell Lung Cancer. This is an aggressive cancer with a poor prognosis.

My name is Happy Rhodes. I've known Vickie since 1988 and I’m but one of many artists to have benefitted from Vickie’s enthusiasm and tenacity. She deserves so much more from this life but I wanted to give all of the people who’ve been touched by her spirit a chance to contribute to some wonderful moments for her.

This is not just for Vickie but also for her husband Chris, who is her only caregiver. We should all be so lucky to have that kind of support in our lives.
