This painting was done at the request of and for my niece, Melissa Rupoli, who lost her battle with cancer at the tender age of 29 in 2009. Proceeds from the sale of this painting, in any form, will be donated to Gifts of Warmth for Melissa, a non-profit organization to help cancer patients as they fight against this disease. You can view additional information about this organization at www.giftsofwarmthformelissa.com.
