Ellen, will you please help me stand up and be the voice for children? Will you help me bring awareness to a disease that steals the lives of thousands of children? Every 2 minutes, a child will be diagnosed with cancer. 1 out of 5 children will not survive. Over 90,000 children pass away each single year. This is more seats than the largest NFL stadium in the United States.

Unfortunately, my daughter was one of these children.

My beautiful daughter, Ariya, was born on May 18th, 2017 and immediately made the world a brighter place. On December 29th, 2017 at only 7 months old, Ariya was diagnosed with infant acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Our world was turned completed upside down. Ariya quickly went into remission and did well with her treatment. Our nightmare became worse on January 15th, 2019 when we learned that Ariya’s leukemia had returned and this time it was stronger than ever. As parents we knew we would go to the end of the world for her and that’s exactly what we did every time we got the news “nothing is working.”

Ariya was treated at Golisano’s Children’s Hospital in Ft. Myers, FL, John Hopkins All Childrens Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL, Dallas Children’s Hospital in Dallas, TX and finally at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. On August 2nd, 2019 after battling cancer for 20 months out of her 27 months of life, Ariya gained her wings and went to be with Jesus.

Ariya was a silly and sassy little girl yet was very tender hearted and sweet. She loved watching The Little Mermaid, playing with bubbles and putting her stickers on ever surface she could find. She is terribly missed every single day. When Ariya was named, we didn’t know her name had such a powerful meaning... “God’s Lion”

Our mission is to have Ariya’s memory live on as well as bring awareness to such an awful disease that takes the life of so many little ones. I will continue to fight for her every single day until it’s my last day ?

Please help me!!! Because our children are worth more than 4%!!!

Thank you for your time.

 2019 I will celebrate, tell the stories of, and paint for over 100 Warriors of Cancer, Autism, and Life. I am so honored to announce there are only 10 spots left for Nominations! I've gone beyond the Warrior 100 and now it's looking like I will have celebrated more than 130 by the end of the year; it's unbelievable.

Since February we've lost a few Warriors, Rick Fenley and Marnie Mahowish from Cancer. Not a day goes by that I don't think of them and not one painting is completed without remembering their fight. Their names will join all the others, on the back of every painting I ever complete, in tribute. Added to our Fallen Warriors, Pancho Billa (Ezra Castro), Grace, and Bentley. You will forever be our Guardian Warriors. 

I will be updating the site to show each Warrior, Bio, and Painting. Thanks for your patience and unwavering love and support! For now, challenge yourself to remember the Bios, the paintings, and the painting reveals for all Warriors. 

Follow our stories and painting reveals:
