LOS ANGELES—Friends of adult industry makeup artist Lee Garland have launched a website to assist with the mounting medical bills he's incurred after recently being diagnosed with cancer. The website is located at HelpLeeGarland.com.
Over the past two decades Garland has worked with the industry’s biggest stars, like Jenna Jameson and Dyanna Lauren, and on the biggest award-winning movies, including Batman XXX: A Porn Parody, Where the Boys Aren’t 19, Bella Loves Jenna, Conquest and Jenna Loves Kobe.
In addition to his video work, Garland’s work can be seen in magazines and erotic art books all over the world.
“Lee Garland is our colleague and our friend, and he is battling cancer,” his friends wrote on the site. “His closest friends are reaching out to everyone who Lee's life and gentle spirit have touched over the years and asking for help. The website, HelpLeeGarland.com has been launched to accept donations and coordinate fundraisers, as well as celebrate the life and work of a beloved and treasured personality.”
This weekend Dyanna Lauren will be performing at downtown Los Angeles’ Spearmint Rhino and all proceeds from tips and merchandise sales will go to Garland’s fund. Lauren dances tonight through Saturday with shows beginning at 9 p.m. The Spearmint Rhino is located at 2020 East Olympic Boulevard.
A Facebook page also has been established to collect donations at Facebook.com/helpleegarland.
