Help Philly’s Legendary Keech Kill Cancer: A Benefit Art Show at Tattooed Mom

April 11, 2018

 

In 2015, the legendary Philly graffiti writer and artist (and all-around great human being,) Keech, began a “Kill Cancer” campaign around the city to raise awareness and money for cancer research that resulted in an art fundraiser at Tattooed Mom that November. The campaign was inspired by Keech’s mother-in-law being diagnosed with cancer. Now, nearly three years later, Keech himself is battling cancer and Philly’s graffiti and arts communities have rallied to support him.

In an effort to help Keech deal with the enormous expenses and hardships that he’s now facing, friends, family, and fellow writers and artists have created two ways you can show your support: First, you can donate what you can to the Help Keech Kick Cancer GoFundMe page. Second, you can come out to this weekend’s Keech Kills Cancer: A Benefit Art Show at Tattooed Mom (South street between 5th and 6th streets) this Sunday, April 15 from 6-10pm. Sunday’s art benefit will feature work from scores of heavy hitters from the Philadelphia street art and graffiti communities and beyond. And Tattooed Mom’s will also be donating 20% of all food and drink sales to the cause.

Keech is such an incredible person, and he deserves all our support. Hope you’re able to help him now when he really needs it!
