Please help Our dear friend
Friends the following letter is regarding a dear friend of Mine Curtis. His voice is one sent by the gods and his heart is full of the joy of a child. This past year at the AZ regional Burn he gave me a gift taking me to his RV to play for me a personal private song , it made me weep. This announcement also made me weep. I do not know why the universe has such an ironic way of doing things but I do know this the human spirt the connections we creat the love we give can come back to us all. many of you know Curtis from toast, La precomp, Burning man, and other events of the like. I encorage you to do as your sprit leads blesings
GiGi-D please feel free to pass this on as you feel lead
My best friend is dying, I'm sad as hell, and I'm asking for your
help. Now is the time to show that "community" and "connections" mean
a lot more than just bopping around at late-night parties together.
My friend's name is Curtis Coleman. He gives a lot to the world, and
we desperately need what he gives. Last year, he was the nation's
most popular elementary school entertainer, reaching tens of
thousands of young kids through song to teach them about safety,
public spirit, and most importantly, that they have a voice. We need
our children to find their voice.
Curtis now has no voice, fighting an aggressive cancer in his throat
called squamous cell carcinoma. Soon Curtis will have neck dissection
surgery, plus aggressive radiation & chemo. On paper his chances of
survival are less than 1 in 4, but cancer victims facing far worse
odds have been "miraculously" cured when enough people came together
to make it happen. We do amazing things together within our
respective families, so please, please participate in saving Curtis'
life and prove we can do amazing things together within our
So many of you know Curtis, are stunned by this news, and have
already asked how you can help. Some of Curtis' closest friends have
put together a plan of action we hope everyone connected to Curtis in
any way will participate in. We need three things immediately for
Curtis: money, time, and love.
Money: Curtis has no insurance, and the most promising medical
treatments aren't covered by the county's last resort coverage. If
everyone that sees this gives up a couple lattes and contributes at
least $10 or more if you can, we'll be on our way to giving Curtis
the best chance possible at life. Please help as much as you can
RIGHT NOW by using Paypal ? to http://www.Paypal.com and enter account number firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, send a check to 1142 Garfield Ave, San Jose CA 95125. All donations will go to the Friends of Curtis
Time: Curtis' girlfriend Andi needs help to cope with the huge burden
of caring for Curtis over the months to come. If you can help with
time for finding treatments, delivering an anti-cancer diet,
transportation, lots of social visits, a mailing list, or even
household tasks like mowing the lawn it would be tremendously
helpful. Contact FriendsOfCurtis@yahoo.com and you'll find out that
when you reach your hand out to someone that needs it, your hand
never comes back empty.
Love: Whether or not you can help with time or money, you can help
with love in so many ways. Visualize the tumors melting away into
nothing, and a healthy Curtis making hundreds of kids a day laugh and
learn again with his unique talent and beautiful voice. Put Curtis in
your prayer circles, or your altars, or whatever connects your energy
to the universe. Radiation is powerful medicine, but the love force
of many can change the world. Help change the world now through one
man that has touched so many of us and our children.
Ok, right now, just do it! Send at least $10, figure out how else you
can help, and send a prayer. Then please forward this letter to
everyone in your tribe and email lists with a personal note about how
you are connected to Curtis, and ask them to participate in
supporting my lifelong friend. Stand up for what is good in the world
by asking everyone you know to help. Check out
http://www.FriendsOfCurtis.com that will be set up soon. And thank you for
the love. We are all in this together, and grateful for your help.
