Tattooist's Sneaker Art Helps Kids with Cancer
In a beautiful, heart tugging story, CBS News Denver reports on how tattooist Drew Carter, as well as other artists at Illumination Tattoo, use their skills to help kids battling cancer. They work with an organization called Peach's Neet Feet, which donates hand-painted shoes to children living with disabilities and fighting serious illnesses. Every shoe is customized to complement each child's life and interest. And that's how Drew spends his time a lot of his time when he's not tattooing.
As the CBS News feature notes, Drew himself beat cancer; he had undergone chemotherapy, radiation, and then a bone marrow transplant from his own stem cells. When Drew couldn't handle physical activity, he turned to art. Now, he's giving back, bring some fun into the lives of courageous children.
