“Like all emergencies, my breast cancer was unexpected. Thankfully, EASL approved me for a grant that not only helped financially, but also brought me some peace of mind and I was able to continue with my artwork.”

A Life Saver

“After a very unexpected and painful medical emergency, I was saddled with the added stress of a substantial hospital bill. A grant from the Emergency Artists’ Support League was a welcome relief, aiding in a faster physical and emotional recovery. EASL is a gift. I’m so grateful for this organization, its founders, and the many folks who keep it going. Thank you EASL!”

Guardian Angel

“I wanted to let EASL know how much this has meant for us! The $5,000 is absolutely appreciated – you have given our family the chance to breathe a little while we go through this. This was a very big stress reliever for us! You helped to carry us during the time “H” is not able to work and earn money. Thank you so much!”
