Why Fighting Cystic Fibrosis Sketches?

Posted by

So Why am I involved in the Fighting Cystic Fibrosis sketches charity work?  It all goes back to my good friend Chris Scott.  I met Chris (Knightt) on the Valiantfans.com message board.  Unfortunately his daughter Alyssa (you can read her story here) has Cystic Fibrosis.  Now I did not really know anything about CF before meeting Chris.  Trust me, it is a terrible disease.  Well what Chris had done in the past was go to SDCC and get some sketches to auction off on ebay and then donate the $$$ to the Great Strides website.  I remember bidding and winning one that first year.

So back in 2009, I found out that he was not going to be able to go to SDCC that year, so (in a moment of naivety) I volunteered to go and see if I could get some sketches……. And the rest they say is history.

It has become quite a big part of my and my family’s life.  It is a great feeling to do something for someone outside of yourself.  I will be posting a bunch about the sketches, so stay tuned.
