Updated Campaign for Post-Surgery Recovery and Creative Access Residency
Artist Gail Foster has come a long way since her catastrophic fall and spinal cord injury in 2013. Since her most recent surgery this past March, she continues to gain strength and endurance every day, but it does not come without an enormous amount of assistance. Post-surgery recovery requires an endless list of appointments, medication, co-payments, physical therapy, and more. This is an ongoing journey that she is continuing to push through, and it’s crucial now more than ever as Gail approaches a huge opportunity, 32 days from today.

StudioSwan takes a Bubble Break!
Tom and Gail took a 5-minute (maybe longer) bubble break to celebrate 35 years of Help Hope Live. #LifeIsFragile…but hope and community support can make all the difference.
Help Hope Live has supported community-based fundraising to help families in medical crisis afford the care they need. They have been a crucial part in Gail’s journey to recovery and we cannot thank them enough for all the work that they do. We highly recommend you take your own bubble break and soak in all the beauty that surrounds you!
Simply blow bubbles in a video or photo and post it to social with #BubbleBreak35 and @helphopeliveorg. When you’re done, you can also donate $35 to the nonprofit in the name of hope. More info at bubblebreak.net!

One of Gail's paintings is on the cover of one of my CD's. A couple of her charcoals grace our living room and a print of one of her paintings glows in our bedroom. She is the most gifted of artists and our job is to provide a platform for her to spread the light of her artistic vision out into the world.
