A SILENT auction fundraiser and exhibition of contemporary street art opens this week to help out four-year-old Isla Hewett and her family as she undergoes a long treatment plan for cancer.

Isla was diagnosed with the fast-acting acute lymphoblastic leukemia in September 2020, the weekend of her second birthday. 

The family’s faced financial stress along her lengthy 2.5 year treatment plan, and family friend Nik Rogers came up with the idea to tap into the art world for help.
