Greetings AE Family & Friends,
We are excited to unveil a beautiful new card series, Lily’s Journey Back, for purchase in support of the Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance. Sixteen-year-old Lily Westerkamm, for whom the card set is named, was only fourteen when she was diagnosed with AE. During her treatment at Riley Hospital for Children at IU in Indianapolis, she was presented with Prismacolor pencils by her caring hospital team, which she used to create beautiful artwork during and following her hospitalization.
Art became an important creative outlet for Lily during her journey with AE – a visual expression of her thoughts and emotions. Lily partnered with the Alliance by sharing her talent to benefit the work we do in support of the AE community. We have included four of her works in this very special set of 16 note cards.
Lily’s Journey Back is the first card set we have published of artists within the AE community. We sincerely hope you will consider purchasing these lovely note cards for personal use or as gifts during this holiday season or for any special occasion. The set is beautifully designed and packaged with matching natural Kraft paper envelopes in a transparent cover Kraft box, tied with natural jute ribbon – ready for gifting. You can purchase each set for $20 plus shipping.
As always, we appreciate our AE community and the many ways you choose to support us. We are always encouraged by your acts of kindness. We wish to extend a very special thank you to Lily Westerkamm for sharing her talent with us and making this inaugural card set possible.
