Peterborough Artist Joins Cancer Fight
Murray Henderson is a premier Canadian Sports Artist. That rare breed of painter who paints action pictures that profile famous sports celebrities.
Murray had the world drop out beneath his feet this year when his fifteen year old daughter Courtney, was rushed to Sick Children's Hospital in Toronto where she was diagnosed with a rare form of Hodgkins Lymphoma.
Unfortunately, the situation turned from bad to worse, and the Henderson family lost Courtney this past August. And, so it was with a grieving heart, that Murray decided to use his gift, in Courtney's name, to help fight Lymphoma.
Murray invites you to read his webpage, and to join him as a fellow artist, in his personal and meaningful journey to fight cancer. Please click here.
