Paul Haines is one of the good guys. One of the best. And for the past ten months, he and his family have suffered the toughest times of their lives: Paul has bowel cancer, and after all the pain and fear, and losing part of his bowel to it, he thought he’d conquered the bastard, only to find spots on his liver during the past week. He’s been blogging his experience, and frankly, it’s nothing you’d ever want to go through.
Paul’s a fighter, and he’s going to fight this with two other forms of chemotherapy for cancers like his, combined with a monoclonal antibody called Avastin. Avastin, however is not part of Medicare or the private health system’s funding at this stage. It costs $20,000 to do it. Money that he doesn’t have.
That’s where we come in. We’re a community, with all that implies: we’re going to do what we can to raise the money for his treatment.
And that’s where you come in. Because you can go here, like a lot of us have already done, and you can make a payment via Paypal. Or you can email me, and ask for bank details to make a direct deposit. Or you can click the button below, which (hopefully) will take you to the payment screen.
Either way, if you’ve ever enjoyed one of Paul’s stories, or one of mine; if you’re a friend of mine and you just want to give me a warmenfuzzie; or you want to make a difference, this is the way to do it. If you’ve bought a copy of my book, or a magazine with my story in it, I insist.
Paul’s one of the good ones, people, and he needs our help.
