I'm just reposting this from GreenCine Daily, because I think it's important to spread the call for help as soon as possible. From David Hudson:
It's been a while since I've heard from DK Holm, a contributor to the Daily and the writer of not only one of the most popular but also one of the best pieces we've ever run at the main site, his profile of Tim Lucas. And now, via an entry from Shawn Levy, I may know why. "Help DK Holm" delivers the disturbing news that Doug's "suffering from a very treatable case of esophageal cancer. However, he is also, as he puts it, 'the American nightmare' - uninsured and facing thousands of dollars in medical bills for chemotherapy and surgery."
But here's the encouraging part: "His colleagues and friends want to help defray some of these costs. There is a fundraiser." If you're in Portland, a city that's already pitching in to make this an evening to remember, you might want to mark the date: Sunday, April 27. Place: Cinema 21. But you don't have to be in Portland to help. More info here.
