Blood + Sweat + Chemo: Artcrank Poster Design

design, chemo, thieman

Andy Thieman was diagnosed with testicular cancer on Christmas Eve. His chemotherapy began on 1/10/11 and ended on 3/25/11. He created his blog, Blood + Sweat + Chemo to expose the daily grind behind his four cycles of chemo. The The Blood+Sweat+Chemo poster was one of 41 cycling-inspired works of art at ARTCRANK, Minneapolis, and all proceeds from the sales of the 100 B+S+C posters will go to Andy's Livestrong Campaign.

At Blood + Sweat + Chemo, Andy shares his stories, others survivor stories, self-test information and events. In October, he will ride with Lance and other survivors in Austin, Texas.
