Team member Fatalwishes (Jeffry Reedy) is fighting stage IV Burkitts Lymphoma. Here is a link to the thread he started yesterday.

I'm Dying

Some great folks in GD have taken it upon themselves to start a fund to help out Jeff with his considerable medical expenses. Please donate if you can, and if you can't, please post some words of encouragement in the thread. Numerous Texas arfcomers have gone to see him at the hospital and show their support. We have raised in excess of $15,000 in just over 24 hours. Here is a link to donate.

For those of you who don't go to GD, this thread will restore your faith in GD and in humanity.

Thank you,

God that is awful.  That tore my heart out.  Good health is something I take for granted way too much.

It's tough to read but amazing to see the support of the membership here. I donated and ask that if you haven't, please consider doing so.

You have certainly stepped up as an admirable example. My thoughts are with him and his family.

I may have bit off a little more than I can chew (kudos to him for knocking a sizeable mortgage down to only 8 years!), but we'll figure out something.

Thanks for posting this. Pay day is Thursday.




I couldn't get past page 3.  Too emotional.

I donated.  The picture of his kid hit me in the gut.  It got very dusty around me several times today reading that thread.

Hit. Wasn't much, wish it could have been more.

Over $43,000 now . . .

I am only through  pages so far. I am A+ and been on the be the match list for over ten years. I have never been called. I would have thought there would have been more people needing donations than that. Work did a sign up drive and everyone in my department signed up at the same time. None of us have been called.

$44,292 wow!

Guys, we need to give special thanks to one of our own. DJinGA stepped up and made a hefty contribution to Jeff's fund. IIRC, it was a mortgage payment.

DJ correct me if I'm wrong.

I haven't been able to follow every page of the thread, but I knew it was at least one.

DJ

Thanks

Well, that was the original offer, but to be honest its a little up in the air.  Jeff and his wife are trying to get their minds wrapped around the whole situation.  Reta suggested maybe a donation to Scottish Rite, beamatch.com or something similar.  I asked them to pick something that would make them happy and I'll hit it.

I'm sure they're getting flooded with emails, so I'm trying not to rush them.


Poor Reta, the first time I called and asked for her mortgage info she broke down crying on the phone.
