Friends sell art to save author Derek McCormack’s life

Friends sell art to save author Derek McCormack’s life

Novelist Derek McCormack was diagnosed with a rare cancer of the appendix last fall, and on April 10, a group of writers, artists and friends will be hosting Corm-A-Rama, a fundraiser at The Garrison with music, merriment and celebration. All charitable donations will go towards McCormack’s living expenses, treatment and travel to New York (he visited the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center seeking a second opinion), but those who can’t make it can also purchase art from Art for Derek (featuring works from Micah Adams, Vincent Fecteau, Robert Fones, Geoffrey James, Linda Jones, McCormack himself and more) or make an online donation.
