Texas 2014 a Year in Review

Texas

Texas

.

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. Yes, here I am again today. I know that this is highly unusual, and I am really pressing my ability to sit up and write… but THIS! Well, what I am about to share with you was posted on Facebook by a friend of mine. His name is Pat Kendrick and he still lives in Texas, in Sugarland. In the five years, well in March five years, of this blog I have never published anything posted on Facebook.

.

I have never been allowed the privilege on showcasing their words here on my blog at The Other Shoe. Today that changed! Today I have been given the esteem privilege of publishing for you, My Dear Shoevians, of sharing some very powerful words directly from the heat of the Great State of Texas. Finally, I would like to say “Thank you!” to Pat Kendrick for the honor of sharing his incredible words… his insight… his vision.

.

Now, without further adieu, I give you… Texas 2014 a Year in Review” by Pat Kendrick:

.

Texas 2014 year in review: Governor Rick Perry indicted on 2 felonies.
Attorney General Gregg Abbott sues Obama twice. Once over Obamacare, once of immigration, Ted Cruz is still a US Senator from Texas, Abbott elected Governor, Texans turns their backs with hate toward kids trying to escape tyranny and terror, no Medicaid expansion leaving 10,000,000 Texans uninsured, 49th in education, 1st in minimum wage jobs, a new Lt Gov who led the charge to fire 11,000 teachers and thi…nks ISIS is our greatest threat in Texas, Kim Kardashian got married twice or 2 more than the number of Texans who died in the fake Ebola scare, open carry let people with penis envy carry AK 47s around town and in stores, voter ID laws restricted voting though no evidence at voter fraud exists, Texas women have their constitutional right of choice virtually eliminated by draconian laws, Louis Ghomert, Joe Barton, and Blake Farenthold are actually Congressmen from Texas, and our textbooks now list Moses as a founding father and slavery not such a bad deal. A glorious year in Texas politics. I’d say 2015 has to be better but I’m scared I’ll be wrong
.

.

And people wonder ‘why’ I won’t go back to Texas, even to visit. Yet, My Dear Shoevians, I cannot help but feel that I have… somehow… abandoned my fellow Texans to the butchers. That is how it feels to me… inside. I LOVED growing up in Texas… I LOVED being a Texan. That is… until… things changed.

.

Now, the whole world can clearly see that not all Texans walk in lock step. That there are many Texans that do not approve of the dire and draconian changes happening in my home state. laugh I don’t know how long it has been since I referred to Texas as my home state. I haven’t visited in nearly thirty years. It is the state of my birth. Yet, I am ashamed. If you have read Mr. Pat Kendrick’s words, above, and you were from Texas, wouldn’t you be ashamed?

.

Again I would like to express my heartfelt thanks for Pat Kendrick for the privilege of sharing his words with all of you, My Dear Shoevians.

.

I have become… suddenly.. very tired. I knew that I was pushing too hard… and I still have to copy/paste to two blogs… proof and publish.

.

Adieu!

.

Thank you!

A Week in Review – September 27th 2014

Danny PET OCM 9-3-14 5

.

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. If its Saturday? Then it is time for ‘A Week in Review’! That’s right My Dear and Devout Readers, the weekend has come the workweek in done. For many of you, My Dear Readers, the work week is just too busy to take time to read for pleasure. That is why I have created and now published for three years this article series. Each and every Saturday I post a review of all the articles published during the previous week.

.

I link to the article, a short excerpt from the article itself and, finally, I write a little something about the article I have linked. Bingo! How all of you, My Dear Readers, can catch-up on a whole week’s writing and publication in one place. Now, for this week, I (working, as always, completely ALONE) have managed to write and publish a record TEN ARTICLES! My Dear Readers, I simply am without the ability, to put into words, the overwhelming pride I feel. Pride that, in spite of pain and roaring depression, I have pushed myself as hard as I can to write and publish. Publish a record amount of good works to help further my cancer treatment funding campaign. I just feel, in my heart and soul, that if I can write and publish more and more “Good works’ that maybe… just MAYBE you, My Dearest Readers, will see my efforts… appreciate my work and reward my efforts by pledging your support to my battle against cancer!

.

As well, each and every article is an opportunity to drawn in more ‘new readers’, new followers and new faces that just might see donating to my Indiegogo campaign as an investment. An earned investment in a talented man who, obviously, works diligently to bring; entertainment, information, laughs and suspense to these pages and your lives. I work hard band I work long hours as a way to pay honor to the support and donations already received, and as an offering to anyone that will give in the near future. ‘Near Future’ is right there are only FIVE DAYS LEFT! I am running out of time fast! Time to convince the people I love to reach out and challenge the nay Sayers by donating to a fund to help me BATTLE CANER!

.

So, with each word written, each paragraph finished and every article published I am contributing and investing in our relationship… our friendship! I just hope that I convince enough of you, My Dearest Readers, to garner sufficient funds to win this battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma!

.

Well, it is 11:00PM on Friday night, so if I am going to get any sleep tonight, I simply must get moving on this weekly review! So, without further adieu I give you ‘A Week in Review’ here at ‘The Other Shoe’!

.

  • My Two Cents – September 22nd, 2014 : “In closing, again, I never wanted to run a campaign this year. My Dear Readers I wanted 2014 to be a year where I wrote, published, and entertained without asking anything, one red cent, from you or anyone else. But as they say ‘the best laid plans of mice and men…’. I come to you, in these closing hours of my campaign, to ask, to implore, to convince, to beseech you My Dearest Readers, to reach out and help lift me so that I might stand in battle and win this war on my cancer.” It as Monday, just five short days ago, and I was already feeling the heat of failure. At this point I had raised just $150, and the shortness of support smarted! I knew not where support would come, I knew not if I would ever garner the support necessary for me to wage a successful battle with my Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer! I had been… told/whispered/hinted at that ‘somebody’ was working to undermine my best efforts. That ‘someone’ was under the (MISTAKEN) impression that if I was deprived of support that (somehow) I would ‘sprout a new spine, new nerve roots, a new leg and be FREE of CANCER’ and “be forced to return to work”. I can only imagine that this person’ was totally bereft of medical knowledge, had not been around these past ten years, failed to understand the medical reality that damaged nerve fiber NEVER HEALS! That is why paraplegics NEVER get up out of their wheelchairs and power chairs and DANCE! (Except, of course, in ‘Tent Revivals’) The only way one might imagine that depriving a human being of much needed support to BATTLE CANER, is if their minds were so clouded by anger and hatred that reason had long ago left them. I was so deeply HURT, by the telling, that I had to explain to the person who told me this, that I was not “upset at them… I am upset by the actions which you tell me about”. My Dear Readers, please do tell me just WHAT KIND of person would run around sewing seeds of distrust based in falsehoods and deceit? What kind of a human being, a Christian, would seek to undermine the efforts of a disabled person to gather funds need to (now) BATTLE CANCER!?! My Oncologist, upon meeting me and hearing the story of my head injury… my further disability… my loss of mobility and NOW my CANER! He marveled at my enthusiasm, my ‘Good Attitude’ and my perseverance in the face of YET ANOTHER personal medical BATTLE! He openly admitted that he did not think he could manage to go through what I have, “and keep the same positive and enthusiastic attitude”! However, I have read that some ‘kinds’ of people ONLY have or keep sick/disabled people as ‘friends’ just so they can ‘Watch them loose their battles with disability or disease”! There are some really sick people out there… really!
  • A ‘Shout-Out’ to ‘The Solitary-One’ : “Sherri Mikeska aka‘The-Solitary-One’ I would like to “Thank YOU!” for; your donation, your time, your kindness, your generosity… AND for picking the “Multi-SOCIAL-Media ‘Shout-Out’!” as it was the ‘Perk’ that I created all by myself! I have been waiting for someone to pick this ‘Perk’ so I could do this… procedure. I really hope that you Sherri Mikeska ‘The-Solitary-One’ sees ALL of these ‘Shout-Outs’! Now, I did see the ‘RL’ name of the person that made the donation. Well, the first name. However, since I DID NOT receive; an email, an Indiegogo PM, or any correspondence giving me permission to use the contributors Real Life name? I DID NOT reveal even the first name that I have record.” The very FIRST of its kind, but hopefully not the last! This is part of the (personal brainchild of ME) ‘Multi-Social-Media SHOUT-OUT!” as a ‘PERK’ for ANY donation of $40 or more! There are STILL 13 (Thirteen) of these ‘Social Media Wonders’ left! You get mention in/on; BOTH Blogs, THREE Facebook Accounts (Mine, The Other Shoe and Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund), TWO Twitter Accounts AND One YouTube VIDEO just FOR YOU! This is a GREAT Perk and one that I was SURE would be a HIT! With FIVE DAYS LEFT I am SURE that there are STILL a few people out here that would REALLY enjoy a ‘Multi-Social-Media’ SHOUT-OUT! Drop $40 of MORE at the campaign, PICK the PERK and WAIT for the WAVE of MEDIA Recognition! (The Net will NEVER be the SAME!) AGAIN ““Thank YOU!” to Sherri Mikeska!!!
  • The Mars Report – September 22nd, 2014: “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today I bring you, yet another, edition of ‘The Mars report’. There are a great many events transpiring, here on Earth in regards to Mars, and in the Martian orbit. The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) is about to have some company in the Martian orbit. The MAVEN (Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution) spacecraft achieved Martian orbit roughly twenty hours ago, late Sunday night. The most tremendous thing about MAVEN is that this spacecraft will help mankind discover just what happened to the, once thick, atmosphere of Mars.” Determined to keep up the ‘regular’ publishing schedule, regardless of the; pain, confusion, depression and everything else. I put my nose to the grindstone, my mind into ‘Creative’ mode, took an extra pain medication and plunged, head first, into he awe and wonder that IS Curiosity’s adventure on the Martian Surface! This week was no different. I managed to find more than a half-dozen images to share, some really great narrative, and even shared some science! I am always happy to share the science and images that come from the rovers on the Martian Surface. My Dear Readers, I have been focused like a laser beam, devoted to my work, and hopeful that my HARD WORK and DILLIGENCE would be rewarded with YOUR DONATIONS! I hope, and pray, that I am right!
  • Multi-Social-Media Shout-Out! For Jason Kleppinger! : “So, Jason Kleppinger HERE IS YOUR ‘Multi-Social-Media Shout-Out!’ As well, I wold like to express my heartfelt THANKS for your kind contribution(S) to my cancer treatment funding campaign. Shortly, I will be broadcasting your name via; YouTube, Facebook, BOTH Blogs and my Twitter account(s)! By the time I am done… hundreds of people around the WORLD will KNOW of your kindness and GENEROSITY Jason Kleppinger!” And BAM right on the heals of the FIRST one comes the SECOND ‘Multi-Social-Media’ SHOUT-OUT! I am SO happy that these ‘Perks’ became so popular! I am only HOPING and PRAYING that many more will want to partake in this GREAT Social PERK. You get KNOWN on the internet FAST! Again, “THANK YOU JASON for your DONATIONS, your KINDNESS and you SUPPRT!” Thanks!
  • Lost in Space – Tour of Our Solar System ‘Review’: “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Welcome to a review edition of ‘Lost In Space’. Last week we completed the series ‘Tour of Our Solar System’ with the publication of Jupiter. Today I am going to share a look back over all of the editions of ‘Lost in Space’ that made up the series ‘Tour of Our Solar System’. From looking at the ‘Likes’ and the traffic reports it is easy to see that this sub-series within ‘Lost in Space’ was a huge success.” As PRMISED (in Last week’s edition) and ON SCHEDULE I wrote and published this ‘Review’ of ALL the edidtions of ‘Lost in Space’ that made up the ‘Tour of Our Solar System’! I am so very happy that, at this point in the week, I am STILL staying on schedule, publishing FINE WORK, and not ‘skimping’ of taking shortcuts! Regardless of my pain (both physical and EMOTIONAL) so SOUJURN forward. I just Keep Moving Forward. Placing FATIH in you, My Dearest Readers, my family, and my very good old friends from Houston and Pearland! I just know that if I can manage to KEEP writing and publishing that my hard work and efforts WILL be REWARDED!
  • Notes From Behind the Keyboard – September 25th, 2014: “THAT, My Dear Readers, brings us to the end of this article, for today. I hope that I have opened some eyes, and shared some insight. It is always my intent to share, and inform. Never to judge or inflame. My words are just that, MY words. Nothing more, and certainly nothing less. I look forward to seeing you here, later today, and again tomorrow. On FRIDAY there WILL be an episode of ‘The Horror in Smithville’!” And into every life a little rain must fall. Yes, it is Wednesday and (when I wrote this article) my doubt had found its way into my heart and mind following my pain. Funny how pain is almost always accompanied by doubt. That being in pain, makes a person more susceptible to doubt. Even myself, I have found that there is doubt, along with some fear… and some genuine… confusion. I FEAR that I will be too short of funds, have to forgo chemotherapy… and fear that my cancer will overcome me… and take me from you, My Dear Readers. I am also confounded by the deafening silence coming from people I have known since I was a pre-teen and a teenager. One would think, since you are STILL in contact with them, they DO know of your malady… well, a friendship that spans FOUR DECADES? Should be a friendship that bears fruit in a time of need. Support, when one stands to face cancer and death, alone.
  • News From Around the World – September 25th 2014 : “Well now, My Dear Readers, that brings us to the end of this revival of ‘News From around the World’ here at The Other Shoe. As most of you are aware, I am running a running campaign at Indiegogo to help me with the mounting costs of battling my cancer. Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund at Indiegogo is now in its FINAL WEEK! That’s right only seven more days for me to raise as much money as I can! I hate to be so brutally honest, but I am a ‘man on a mission’. A mission to raise money to help me with; transportation costs, pharmacy costs, treatment costs, and home care costs.” This article series has been absent for nearly TWO months. However, I brought this one out of mothballs JUST FOR YOU My Dearest Readers! I am working so hard, spending hour upon hour everyday behind the keyboard and on the net. Doing everything I CAN to curry favor and EARN/WIN YOUR SUPPORT! I JUST KNOW that IF I can manage to FINISH OUT THIS WEEK… PUBLISHING ALL THE REGUALR ARTICLES PLUS MORE!!! That I WILL see MANY ‘Good’ DONATIONS!! CORRECT!
  • The Horror in Smithville – Part – 14 – B – 3 : “Betty Sue and Truman are leaning up against the door, when they hear Barry form inside the inner office. They hear him screaming! They had smelled cigarette smoke, again, a few moments earlier. Then it got really quite. Now… Barry was screaming AGAIN! This time is was so loud that it forced Truman and Betty Sue away from the door to the inner office. They heard Barry’s screaming twice, then they could have sworn they heard… Barry begging for his life! Truman got right up against the door, again, and put his ear hard up against the door. He could barely make out Barry saying “PLEASE just STOP right NOW!”” AS PROMISED!!! This week, we return to Barry Gartuske, Truman Dunahoo, and Betty Sue. We have Deputy Darryl on his way to “apprehend the MURDERER”… (Is Timmy DEAD?) AND we have the REAPPREAENCE of ‘The Tall Man’ in all his gory… or is that ‘glory’… Anyway, it is a GREAT episode and REAL ‘MUST READ’ for any of My Dear Readers that enjoy suspense novels or horror! And who DOESN’T at THIS time of year, right? I am HOPING BEYOND HOPE that I WILL have this story FINISHED just in time for HALLOWEEN!!! Now, My Dear Readers, I just CANNOT think of a BETTER motivator… to get me TO finish this horror novel IN TIME for HALLOWEEN than to have a GREAT Ending to my CAMPAIGN! The more money I garner? The BETTER the CHANCES are for me to FINISH! Simple!
  • INTERNATIONAL Traffic August – September 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Now, My Dear Readers, I have always wrote and published for the largest possible audience. Seems to me that the greatest accomplishment for a writer, of any kind, is to have their work read by the largest possible audience. Sure, Domestic audiences are great, it is gratifying to have the people you grew up with read and like your work. Although, the greatest test of a writer’s chops (it would seem to me… as logical) would be so demonstrate that one’s work has international appeal. If you, My Dear readers, have been a long-time reader of this blog, what I am about to publish will be rather familiar.” Well, My Dearest readers, I was looking over the traffic reports for the past month. Nothing out of the ordinary… except there is a LOT MORE traffic at the secondary location that EVERY before (that is over at Word Press). Then, I noticed something ELSE. I was looking at the SOURCE of this great influx of traffic. Low and behold, I find the source… and it knocks my socks off! The ‘source’ of the great increase in traffic? INTERNATIONAL READERS! That’s right, over the past several months, the better part of this year, my Internationla readership has been on a gradual increase! For the purposes of this article I have limited the graphics to the increase in just the last thirty days. But, just at the ‘secondary’ location? There are more than THIRTY nations where I have readers! Still the majority of my traffic is in the ‘GoodOl’USA!’ but now I have ‘regular’ readers in; England, Germany, Spain, France, Greece, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, and India just to name a handful! In the article (linked above) you can see all the nations listed with the number of readers by the name of the country. I am just FALBERGASTED! The NUMBERS are just MINDNUMBING! Over all, between the TWO locations? In just ONE DAY I now have OVER ONE HUNDRED SEPARATE VISITORS! Even BETTER it shows that TWICE A WEEK I have 100+ days! This is better than ever before! Between the increasing international traffic and the several 100+ visitor days my blog(s) have gained a popularity… my WORK my WRITING has gained a level of popularity that I had not even noticed, and am just HUMBLED by!

.

So, My Dear Readers, that brings us to the end of this weeks’ edition of ‘A Week in Review’ here at ‘The Other Shoe’. If you have read this entire article, then I think that you, My Dear Readers, now understand why I have managed to keep in a ‘Good Mood’ regardless of the dismal sate of my campaign. I can take heart in the fact that my writing and my work is gaining an international audience! That, overall, my traffic is on the up-swing, and that more and more people, every day, are learning just what a joy it can be to read something written by Danny Hanning!

.

YES! I really do need for donations to increase… either in frequency or size… or BOTH! I simply will not be able to afford to restart my treatments and care with the $280 I have raised. However, I will Make A PROMISE right here, right now’! That if (somehow) I manage to break $1,000.00 before the end of the campaign that I “will restart and STAY WITH my chemotherapy/radiation therapy. PERIOD! I do NOT want to shorten my life by refusing these treatments, However, I will NOT allow myself to be without enough money to pay the rent just so I can afford; transportation, food, a caregiver, and medications. PERIOD!

.

So, there it is My Dear Readers, a FULL and complete week of writing and publishing. JUST AS I PROMSIED! Now, I have done MY PART. It is TIME for you, My Dear Readers, to do your PART! I have sojourned on through pain, doubt and fear these past four weeks. I have done so without ‘seeing’ the financial… or friendship support that I need to battle and beat cancer. Regardless, I have managed to write and publish TEN ‘Good’ articles for your reading pleasure. Now, won’t you PLEASE click on the link below… and make my life BETTER and SAFER by pledging YOUR support?

.

Adieu!

My Two Cents – September 22nd, 2014

My Two Cents

My Two Cents

.

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe another edition of ‘My Two Cents’. It is been many weeks since my last edition of ‘My Two Cents’ was published here at The Other Shoe. I could sit here and enumerate the myriad reasons for the absence of any edition of this article series. However, instead of looking back My Dear Readers I will choose to look forward. Since my last appearance, in this franchise, I have been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Upon the receipt of this; untimely, unfortunate, unwanted, frightening news I immediately snapped into a ‘Critical Thinking’ mode.

.

For now two generations, that I know of, the Hanning family has been periodically plagued with that parasitic pathogen cancer. Each and every time I have seen it rear its ugly head, in my family history, it is wrought financial disaster wherever it went. Due to my physical inability to perform any kind of work that would pay a wage, I saw the onset of this cancer is the tip of the sword. A sword that would lead to the undoing of my life, my life of 28 years with Alan, and my ability to keep a roof over my head. Now, My Dear Readers, you want to know something even more frightening than cancer? Think about having cancer and being homeless at the same time.

.

That, My Dear Readers, was the fear that rose its ugly terrifying head August 8, 2014. The reality of my familial- existence is that I could count on only one thing. I could not count on my family to come to my assistance. Whereas that might seem brutal, harsh, unfeeling, and insensitive, and for the majority of you a frame of reference we could not possibly share, it is just the reality of the past 40 years of my life. That is not to say, My Dear Readers, that the family I have does not love me. For all I know, they do. However, since my father walked out on his wife and his two remaining sons in the late 60s? I have learned that to be a ‘Hanning’ is to learn how to make it from one crisis or event, to another completely alone.

.

So be it. Now, My Dear Readers, I had every good hearted intention to not hold a fund-raising campaign this year! I remember the parable of ‘The Boy who Cried Wolf’. Having remembered this parable well I, myself, did not want to fall into a pattern of behavior that left those that do care (about my welfare) feeling spent by their efforts to assist. Allen and I were making it just fine. Like a good many millions upon millions of Americans, Allen and I were living paycheck to paycheck, month-to-month, hand to mouth. There is no great pride, in living that way, but we were making it and we were making it on our own. My Dear Readers I struggled with the next decision of my life greatly.

.

Over the next week, starting August 8, 2014 when I was told I have lymphatic cancer, I’m willing to bet I did not sleep one night in three. I laid awake each and every night tossing and turning and struggling with a decision I had prayed God I would never have to make. I could go forward, and battle my cancer alone with no help nor assistance from friend or family or acquaintance. Following this path, most assuredly, at some point in the next 18 months, ‘needs’ would far outstrip ‘means’. At that point Allen and I would be left with a choice of stopping any current treatment to battle my cancer, or lose their roof over our heads.

.

Now, My Dear Readers, the decision-making process was not one I made solely alone. I discussed this, at length, with Allen prior to making my decision. I touched base with the family members that I am still in contact with, only to find them quite bereft of the ability to help. On August 15, 2014, at about seven the evening, I came to my final decision. My Dear Readers I had struggled now a long and sleepless week with a difficult ’no-win’ situation. On one hand, I could move forward with treatment Allen would lose days and days of work for weeks at a time, and in a matter of months our needs… The demands of my cancer would far outstrip our means to meet these demands.

.

At which time, My Dear Readers, we would find ourselves completely in able to pay our rent thus resulting in our eviction from our home… And homelessness. The alternative would be to tell my doctors, my primary care physician and my oncologist, that I was to refuse treatment for my recently diagnosed cancer. To do so would be to challenge my primary care physician’s judgment about the best course of treatment for my health. I understood that if I chose this course of action my primary care physician and oncologist could refuse further treatment, based on my poor judgment regarding my health. Under Medicare any doctor that is currently treating you can, at any moment at their discretion, choose to halt their participation in your healthcare. I do this from reading the literature provided by Medicare, and I knew this because my primary care physician had explained it to me previously. So you see, My Dear Readers, to initially refuse any staging of my cancer or following chemotherapy would be to risk the loss of all my practitioners.

.

With that in mind, My Dear Readers, I concluded that the best and most logical course of action would be to chance becoming a character in a parable, to risk excommunication by my fellow Texans, to invite the dissolution of multigenerational friendships, and to seek the kindness and support (I now much needed) to battle this cancer. Over the next 48 hours I put the final finishing touches on a preliminary campaign I had drawn up, earlier that month. I had never intended on using the draft campaign I shared with you, My Dear Readers, on August 11, 2014. I didn’t sleep much, over the next 48 hours, as I tried to come up with a ‘Mission Statement’ that didn’t sound too trite, to pathetic, or too demanding. I hope and pray none of you never have to experience what that feels like.

.

On August 17, 2014 I, with a heavy heart and deep regret, launched Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo[1]. My Dear Readers since that day I have done my level best to; write every single day that I am physically able, publish every single day I have something written worth publishing, update the campaign with every event in every publication, publicize the campaign via Facebook and YouTube to the best of my ability and financial means, post regular and informative updates via Facebook and both of my blogs, and to keep myself from reaching to deep in the depths of depression. That’s a lot of goals My Dear Readers, and I am but one man. I will never know, for sure, why this campaign did not catch on like my two previous campaigns.

.

I may well never know why many of my; friends, family, acquaintances and readers of my two blogs helped twice previously, but did not hearken to my call for assistance in my battle with cancer. All I do know is that in 35 days I have raised $150. Starting today I begin the 10 day countdown to the end of said campaign. My Dear Readers, I have a little less than 10 days to raise enough money for my continued treatment in my battle for cancer. In the first 35 days I have provided; pathology reports, biopsy reports, physician’s notes, images from scans, and test results. There are at least a half dozen incidences where, in these reports, it clearly states Danny Hanning has a lymphoma. That Danny Hanning has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

.

All that remains, in this part of my battle with cancer, is a little less than 10 days of me writing and publishing and promoting and praying that more will come forward and join the few that have already donated to help me battle cancer. The facts are there, my writing this here, my need is genuine, my cancer quite real. It is my, now published, desire to continue with and win my battle with this lymphatic cancer. It is my intent and desire to use money raised from this campaign exclusively in the battle with this cancer that has invaded my body and life. It will be the focus of the next 200 hours of my life to convince you My Dear Readers, to come forward and pledge five dollars, $10, $20, $200 to enable me to battle and beat cancer and keep a roof over my head.

.

In closing, again, I never wanted to run a campaign this year. My Dear Readers I wanted 2014 to be a year where I wrote, published, and entertained without asking anything, one red cent, from you or anyone else. But as they say ‘the best laid plans of mice and men…’. I come to you, in these closing hours of my campaign, to ask, to implore, to convince, to beseech you My Dearest Readers, to reach out and help lift me so that I might stand in battle and win this war on my cancer.

.

My Dear Readers I thank you for your time today, I thank you for your patience your understanding your kindness and your support. I look forward to writing and sharing them with you again tomorrow, until then please click the links below, take a moment and help change my life for the better.

A Week in Review – September 21st, 2014

                        Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today is Sunday, and I have no ‘Sunday Funnies’ planned or completed. Whereas Saturday is the usual day for my weekly review, this week I have chosen to publish this article on Sunday. With the publication of this article, this review, I have completed six articles in the past seven days. As well, last week I promised to “do my best” to publish all the regular articles that you, My Dear Readers, have become accustom. I have accomplished said goal regardless of personal/medical problems.

.

Regardless, I am a man of my word. Now for a brief moment of candid honesty. My Dear Readers I am confused and dejected by the apparent lack of fiduciary support for my battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. For a time (a short time) I was genuinely depressed by the apparent lack of empathy and support for my engaging in battle with a deadly cancer. That has passed, for why would I allow myself to be effected in such a base negative fashion by what amounts to a callous disregard for one’s fellow man.

.

I, now, understand that this is not personal. I looked around the Indiegogo web site and, in just a matter of thirty minutes; I bore witness to untold levels of callous human indifference. Children, whose parents have started campaigns to help with the mounting costs of cancer, garnering only token support. CHILDREN WITH CANCER! This is not personal, this is endemic of our society. Of the overt avarice that is infected our zeitgeist, and permeated even our base relationships.

.

For if, in fact, we cannot depend on relationships forged in the cauldrons of youth and adolescence then what, pray tell, are we?

.

My campaign (Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo) will and does continue for another ten days. There is nothing I can do; to stop the humiliating continuation, halt the embarrassment that is the failure of faith, or negate the confusion and frustration which is every day. However, each and every day I just remember this:

.

“The great danger in today’s world, pervaded as it is by consumerism, is the desolation and anguish born of a complacent yet covetous heart, the feverish pursuit of frivolous pleasures, and a blunted conscience.”[1] Pope Francis – 11/24/13

.

That quotation, alone, brings solace to my aching heart, mind and soul. The words of Pope Francis have helped me to understand the underlying avarice, that is to blame, for the shortcoming that is my campaign to garner support in my battle with Cancer.

.

And now, without further adieu, I give you ‘A Week in Review’!

.

  • Sunday Funnies – September 14th 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. My love for Alex knows no bounds. Alex’s love for me, knows no bounds. So long as I am alive Alexander R Hanning will live a blessed life. He will want for nothing and spend his days; eating, playing, and sleeping beside his Daddy. He is a wonderful young rat, and his time with me has been special.” Alex is such a beautiful and wondrous animal, a gift to my family and now… to the world! Alex and I just love sharing our antics, together, and… in time, will continue. Alexander is beside himself. He loves his Daddy Daniel, so very much and to see him suffer, gives him paws.
  • The Mars Report – September 15th 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Welcome to another edition of ‘The Mars Report’ and some pretty incredible images, and science, from the surface of Mars. Over the past couple of week Curiosity has given me more than enough images to power this edition of this storied franchise. I must admit, My Dear Readers, that it is ‘Good’ to be ‘Back in the Saddle, Again’! Back in the saddle writing the articles that I enjoy, and back in the saddle of publishing on a regular basis.” After a more than a month hiatus, this storied franchise has made a generous return. With eight images and photos, this edition of ‘The Mars Report’ is not one to be missed. My Dear Readers, I made a promise… and even unto death, I am a man of my word.
  • Lost In Space – Solar System Tour – Jupiter : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. As another week has passed I bring to you, My Dear Readers, another edition of ‘Lost In Space’. This week I bring to you, out of our ‘Solar System Tour’ series, the behemoth of Sol Jupiter! The single largest planet in our solar system, with a surface area of just under twenty-four BILLION square miles, a mass that is nearly 320 times Earth’s, a radius of 43,441 miles, and an orbital period of twelve years![1] Jupiter is the first of the Jovian ‘Gas Giants’ and lies just beyond the asteroid belt separating the terrestrial planets from these Jovian ‘Gas Giants’.” Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. What better subject to end this series ‘Tour of our Solar System’ of the mainstay of The Other Shoe, ‘Lost in Space’. Next week I will publish a review of the complete series, then we will return to the weekly series as it originated. Yes, I will return to sharing several incredible images of far-flung galaxies and nebula as seen by the ‘Hubble Space Telescope’.
  • Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo Video #5 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today we reached Twelve Days LEFT to Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo. Over the past THRITY-TWO DAYS I have; written as much and as often as I am physically able, published on a regular basis, refrained from publishing or writing ANYTHING political in nature, PUSHED myself harder than I have in YEARS to gain your TRUST. I have kept everyone apprised of my medical appointments to the extent that I have openly published notes from; TWO appointments with my oncologist, P.E.T. scan, C.T. Scan AND blood tests!” Written, My Dear Readers, during the (self-described) “short period” of depression, prior to my reflection on the words of Pope Francis that brought clarity. It is a very short video, totaling just over two minuets. I hope that some people took the 2 mins out of their lives to watch, and listen.
  • The Horror in Smithville – Part 14-B-2 : ““Yes, Truman… I remember you! You are the English and Drama teacher at the Middle School, correct? You say you are holding the boy that beat up Timmy Marref? OK… I understand. No, you are right you shouldn’t be holding be holding a murderer there at the Middle School! I am the only one here, right now. Sheriff Daniels is out on a call, all that is left is Linda, our dispatcher, and me! I really shouldn’t be leaving Linda here alone… but I don’t see as I have a choice, right now. You are right. You don’t have the ability to hold a violent criminal, and we need to get him… locked up BEFORE this snowstorm hits Smithville! Truman, just hold on to him for another 10 to 15 minuets. I am leaving NOW! I will get there as quickly as I can to pick up the offender… just keep him locked up, and I will be right there…”” TIMMY IS DEAD! Barry Gartuska is a MURDERER? What has transpired, on ‘The Horror in Smithville’, since you last read? Only way you will find out, for sure? READ and BE entertained!

.

With that, My Dear Readers, we come to the end of this week’s ‘A Week in Review’. I do genuinely hope that people have enjoyed my works, and my words. I do not write out of vanity nor do I publish in the pursuit of fame or awards. I write to entertain and inform. Period. I am glad for the readers I have, I enjoy sharing and writing and publishing for their entertainment, alone.

.

Throughout the majority of the year, there are no advertisements here at The Other Shoe. I pay a yearly fee so that they are removed. I do this as a courtesy to you, My Dear Readers. Until I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma I had no intention of running an Indiegogo campaign. This year, 2014, was to be ‘Campaign Free’… but life intervened and I was forced to either ask for your support… or face a life with cancer without much needed treatment. I made my choice, and I will stand by this choice.

.

I do not know if I will publish… as much… at all, next week. I hope that I feel up to writing and publishing. I still have over twenty pages, yet unpublished, of ‘The Horror in Smithville’. I would be happy to edit and publish them, next week. Right now… I just do not know. What happens… tomorrow… what transpires will have impact on my decision, and my actions.

.

In closing, I will take a moment to ask for your support. If you take a few moments, at the Indiegogo campaign web site, and read the doctor’s reports, test results, post operative reports, and BIOPSY reports… it will become abundantly clear that I (in fact) do have cancer. My Dear Readers, I would very much like to battle this bodily invader! However, as I have stated time and again, I need your support!

.

One moment… just a ‘look’… and consider, PLEASE?

.

Adieu!

Thank YOU!

I have been open and transparent as is humanly possible, even providing documented PROOF of my cancer- Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I have looked at MANY other campaigns, on Indiegogo, that ARE for people raising donations for cancer (like me) and NONE have provided all the proof that I HAVE. I, for the life of me, cannot imagine just why this campaign is failing!

A Week in Review – September 14th, 2014

Daneil Hanning of The Other Shoe 2001

Daneil Hanning of The Other Shoe 2001

.

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Welcome to this edition of ‘A Week in Review’ for the week of September 7th, 2014. I managed to write and publish a few articles, in spite of the debilitating conditions that plagued my week. I thank everyone that has stood beside me, and continued to visit and read.

.

With little to say, my mind is wracked with doubt and concern, I will just jump headlong into this review. Without further adieu, I give you ‘A Week in Review’!

.

  • Sunday Funnies – September 7th 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. If it is Sunday? Then it is time for ‘Sunday Funnies’! This week Alexander R Hanning is busy at work building yet another ‘Home’ away from his two story condo. I found a nice cardboard box, placed it on my bed, and gave him old pajamas and torn up paper to play with. This video is a little bit of the ‘construction’ Alex engaged in getting the box turned into a home!” Alexander has returned for another visit, and another great video, here for our enjoymnent at The Other Shoe. Alex continues to build, and build and build on his many homes and residences. As Aelxander builds, I will make videos and share them with you, My Dear Readers.
  • Lost In Space – Saturn: “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today we take the series of ‘Lost In Space’ to our celestial cousin, Saturn. Saturn… muse to millions of astronomers over centuries of time. The true ‘Lord of the Rings’ in our solar system, with no compare, no second place and no competition. Since I was a very young boy Saturn has captured, and held, my attention. The second largest planet in our solar system, this mighty Jovian lords over all other planetary bodies circling our star, Sol.” Without missing a beat, I write and publish another edition of ‘Lost in Space’ the ‘Tour of our Solar System’! Coming, later this week, will be another edition. This one will feature Jupiter!
  • Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund – Porta-Cath Video : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. As many of you are aware, I am currently engaged in a battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Cancer. As well, I am running a ‘Cancer Treatment Funding Campaign’ @ Indiegogo. This campaign is to help with some of the costs associated with my treatment, medications, and paying for a caregiver’s time off from work. I have agreed to not make this campaign, or my cancer, a focus of this blog. Therefore, I am merely going to introduce, and publish this video… and let it speak for itself.” Out of shame, and even self-disgust, I had declared that I would “no longer report on my condition”. I have broke to give this one update. I kind of enjoyed writing about my adventure with Cancer… and the whole ‘process’. But, I had some people complain… and not contribute… so I decided to not write or publish about my cancer… my care… my battle.
  • Notes From Behind the Keyboard – September 14th, 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. I want to thank everyone that has dropped by, this past week. As my treatment has gone forward, my writing has gone backward. I just do not feel up to writing, in between puking. I am writing this article, ‘Sunday Funnies’ and a brief ‘A Week in Review’ today. Then I am going to get some more much needed rest. I am writing this article, first, so that I can get something off my chest.” With only days left I have made a difficult and life-changing decision. I will no longer go for treatment for my cancer. This week… Allen’s check(s) dropped from $200 to $300 a week (each) to LESS THAN $60 EACH! You see, My Dear Readers, THIS was the source of my concern. I can go and battle my cancer, with Allen helping me: get into and out of my power chair, get into and out of scanning devices, got into and out of gurneys and end up unable to pay my rent! Or, conversely, I can stop treatment and have enough to pay my rent. EASY DECISION! DONE!!!

.

With that, My Dear Readers, we come to the end of this edition of ‘A Week in Review’. I hope that everyone has enjoyed this article… enjoyed the work I was able to finish, this week… and enjoy coming to visit and reading. Seriously? I am pretty amazed that I was able to write and publish these five or six articles. I had hoped to bring you a review of ‘The Horror in Smithville’ but my health did not allow that venture.

.

My Dear Readers, I ask you to consider… again… donating to my Cancer Treatment Fund at Indiegogo. As I have explained, without your help I am forced to stop my treatment. WITH your help? I can go forward with my treatment and care. It really is just that simple, and that life-threatening. At every turn I have provided proof and documentation of my cancer.

.

There can be no reasonable doubt that I have Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Those that would proffer that I do not? Well, I can only guess that they wish to do me harm. There is a great sickness, in our nation. I have written about it often, and warned you, My Dear Readers, if it’s poisonous influence. I can only assume that this poisonous influence has reached, and infected, many good people that, would otherwise, reach out and help.

.

That brings us to the end of this edition of ‘A Week in Review’. I would like to thank all of you for dropping by, and reading and visiting. Have a great and productive week, and come back soon!

.

Adieu!

Thank YOU!

A Week in Review – August 30th 2014

Danny @ The Tinder Box 1987

Danny @ The Tinder Box 1987

.

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. There is an old expression around the halls of the blog; “If it’s Saturday, it’s time for ‘A Week in Review’!” It’s Saturday, and this is ‘A week in Review’! Now I know that a lot of you, My Dear Readers, are just too darn busy to drop by and read, during the work week. That is the very reason I created, and continue, this article series here at The Other Shoe. I value all of you, My Dear Readers, and if me taking three to four hours every Saturday to; write, compile, edit and publish this article brings any of you, My Dear Readers, closer to my work? Then I have managed to accomplish something.

.

Truthfully, this week has been cocked full of me trying to accomplish something. From the nine (now TEN) articles I have published since my last ‘Sunday Funnies’ to my gargantuan efforts to help fund my battle against cancer with Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo. To meeting with my new oncologist (Dr. Mario Curti), I have been hip-deep in work and swimming against the tide. Seems like I do a lot of that, swimming against the tide. For, you see, in just the last seven days I have written and published over one hundred pages of content for your, My Dear Readers, reading pleasure. Honestly, I just wish that I had garnered a single dollar for each page I have written… in my cancer treatment campaign.

.

Well, I will touch on that at the end of this article. Now, without further adieu I give to YOU ‘A Week in Review’!

.

  • Sunday Funnies – August 24th, 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Well, it it is Sunday then it is time for ‘Sunday Funnies’! I am very happy to announce that Alexander R Hanning (clicking his name here will take you to HIS Facebook page!) is BACK! That’s right after a month-long hiatus, for personal reasons, Alex is back to making videos with his Daddy Daniel!” Alex is just SO CUTE when he is building and creating. He takes after his Daddy Daniel, in that regard. He is one industrious rat-boy and his home is his palace. Be sure to drop by, tomorrow, for ANOTHER edition of ‘Sunday Funnies’ and watch as Alexander R Hanning just keeps working and just keeps building and nesting. We’ll see you then!
  • The Mars Report – August 25th 2014 : “Beneath this paragraph is the first image of this week’s edition of ‘The Mars Report’. Each week I will endeavor to share the current location of our intrepid sojourner, Curiosity. In the image, below, you will find that Curiosity is now in the depths of the ‘Hidden Valley’ of Mars. A side-note, I find it quite encouraging that NASA/JPL (with the help of EU’s Martian orbiter) have already mapped the entire Martian surface.” It has been some time since I was able to share an all new edition of ‘The Mars Report’. Curiosity had not been transmitting images that NASA/JPL saw fit to edit, improve and publish. That trend changed, this week. Curiosity has arrived at ‘Hidden Valley’ and this edition of this series is all about what happens with Curiosity in ‘Hidden Valley’! Read and enjoy!
  • Lost in Space – Solar System Tour – Uranus : “Last week I featured the planet Neptune in that edition of ‘Lost in Space’ the ‘Solar Systme Tour’. Today, we move one more planet forward (toward the Earth and Sun) and visit the planet Uranus! Now, for some of my more casual readers? It may appear (at first glance) that I am writing about the same planet. “Why?” You may ask. Because both Neptune and Uranus are both ‘large blue orbs’ at the outer rim of our solar system. At first glance they may appear to look the same, yet they are not.” Two weeks, in a row, we have featured a large blue orb, in out “Tour of the Solar System’. These two large blue orbs hang in the night sky, like two marbles that a giant has lost in the sky. Neptune and Uranus are the two huge blue marbles in our night sky, and I have hosted them here in this edition of ‘Lost in Space’. This article series is just under a year old, yet it is one of the favorite of many of you, My Dear Readers. Each and every week I work to write, share and publish images and science meant to trigger you imaginations and fuel your desire for more. More space exploration, more images from other worlds, more that help lift us from this earthy and put us among the starts. Where man truly belongs!
  • Just Published at Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo : “Dear Family, Friends, Followers of The Other Shoe and Contributors, I just spent nearly two hours with a wonderfully hopeful and positive Oncologist. Here are the bullet points[1]:” This article was an update from the day I spent with my oncologist. I was hoping to make it crystal clear that I have a genuine need for the monies I have asked… and am working the campaign Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund @ Indiegogo to garner. I am not running this campaign, spending ten or more hours each and every day… focused on this campaign. Putting aside my own comfort happiness, and my health just to try and ‘crook’ money from people without a genuine need! I have heard… that there are some… that are talking… spreading ill will, lies, deceit, and engaging in gravely disingenuous dialogue about me, my cancer, and this campaign. Let me be perfectly crystal clear; It takes ONE SICK PUPPY to spread LIES about a man WITH CANCER! I hope that everyone closes his or her ears to this disingenuous and sickly motivated poison. As well, I really DO hope that nobody has decide3d NOT to donate… merely because of the sick and disingenuous poison some have chosen to spread. Word!
  • Notes From Behind the Keyboard – August 27th 2014 : “I would very much like to write that “Help has arrived! I will be able to afford the care I need… I WILL BEAT THIS CANCER!” You have no idea just how much I would like to write those words here, and mean them. Maybe. Maybe it will happen. I just cannot see it, from this dark place. I hope that everyone is well and happy. Come back tomorrow for more… I will be venturing back to more familiar works and articles.” My Dear Readers, for all too long… more than once, this week, I have found myself… in a very dark place. I dislike having to admit this depression, in such a public way and forum, but it is true and I am not proud of exposing my fears and anxiety. I stand at the very edge… The edge of a life taken BY cancer… and at the OTHER edge of a life eradicated of cancer. Unfortunately? I cannot work… I have little to nothing of mine to sell… (yet I have many personal items up for sale today on eBay). If I had it to reach in and give, and receive the money I need in return? I would bare my soul and give it away, in exchange for the means to BEAT this cancer! Yes, it is a very dark place, where I find myself. A place without hope surrounded by fear and doubt.
  • Coming SOON to The Other Shoe! : “My decision is this; I am going to continue to write, publish and create all the wonderful regular articles that you, My Dear Readers have come to expect and enjoy. However, let me tell you, My Dear Readers, as shortly as just a few hours ago… I was quite willing to withhold; ‘The Horror in Smithville’, ‘My Two Cents’, ‘Notes from Behind the Keyboard’, ‘A Week in Review’ and ‘Sunday Funnies’ unless or until I started receiving contributions that left this ten dollar sum in the dust!” Deciding to not just focus on the lack of; support, donations, help, assistance, kindness, generosity… I closed my heart to the pain and deep feelings of abandonment, and threw myself headlong into my work. With determination in my heart, prayers on my lips, and the beauty of my words flowing from my soul I set about doing what I know how… WRITE!
  • News From Around the World – August 28th, 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today I am going to share an article series that has been strangely absent from this blog. ‘News From Around the World’ made its first appearance, earlier this year, then vanished recently. Fact of the matter is, between my battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, my (thwarted) attempt to raise the support I need to fight my cancer, and my ongoing battle with pain? I just paired down the number of articles I publish within a given week, and ‘News From Around the World’ found itself on the chopping block. It has been some time since I wrote and published an edition of this article series. However, I had yet to finish my edits on the upcoming episode of ‘The Horror in Smithville’ so, I put my head into the game and delivered an all new edition of ‘News From Around the World’! It felt good to be putting news stories back into print, here at The Other Shoe. Having not brought an article of this type, to the pages of this blog, for some time I was hesitant and even concerned that I might not be able to ‘hit my mark’. Without even trying, and without hesitation, I put my foot forward and, in deed, DID hit my mark! Here is the proff for you to read and enjoy!
  • Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund – HOW to HELP! : “Well, My Dear Readers, that is about it! I cannot think of any other ways one could help my campaign to fight this cancer that has invaded my body. There might be other suggestions in the VIDEO BELOW. I don’t really remember… the video… making the video… or WHAT is IN the video. So, WATCH and tell ME!” In this article I am working just as hard as I can to try and re-engage you, My Dear Readers, into my campaign. Repeatedly I have shared that my need is genuine. I have provided proof of my disease, my doctor visits and done everything that I can imagine to validate my disease. Further, I work to try and share the details of my situation, and my current living circumstances. I have nothing to hide! I do this in the spirit of honesty and integrity. Placing my faith in you, MY Dear Readers, that when you are able that you will donate and lift me out from this desolation, despair, depression, and pain. I just keep moving forward!
  • The Horror in Smithville – Part 14 – B : “Mr. Dunahoo stood, silently, and watched as Tom Marref pealed out of the Middle School parking lot. Mr. Dunahoo knew that inside that truck, now leaving huge clouds of white/gray smoke in the parking lot; laid the unconscious and beaten body of a wonderfully talented student by the name of Timmy Marref. Truman, Mr. Dunahoo, wondered if any of the people gathered here at the back of the school (both students and teachers alike) even noticed how the billowing clouds of smoke coming from the rear tires of Mr. Marref’s truck? How those poofy white clouds resembled the wings of an angel. How, standing there watching a boy… a terribly beaten boy, being carried away by his father and his best friend, in their truck, actually looked like the truck was being lifted on the wings of an angel to take the poor boy to the hospital.” This is the second ‘story line’ in Part 14. Hence the ‘B’ designation. However, My Dear Readers, this is NOT all there is to ‘B’! This is merely ‘B’ -1! I have completed writing Part 14 – B -2, and tonight I will start, and finish Part -14 – B – 3! Three Parts, ONE chapter! It is that long and involved. Yet, IT IS WORTH IT! In this… third part (SPIOLER ALERT!!!) You will see the reappearance of… … … … ‘The TALL Man’! That’s right… not going to tell you; where, when, why of HOW! That is up to you to read! My Dear Readers, I simply must tell you! I LOVE WRITING THIS STORY! It is taking me so many places that are; familiar, fun, thrilling, joyous and entertaining. I just can’t stay away from writing this story! So, tonight… after I finish; writing TWO newsletters, publishing TWO newsletters and publishing THIS review? I will return to the World of Timmy and Archer! HOPE to see YOU there!

.

That’s it! That’s all! NINE articles in just SIX days! Well OVER One Hundered PAGES of content written for your enjoyment and entertainment! My Dear Readers, first and foremost I am here to entertain and enlighten! However, I simply must face the realities of my real world life! If I am unable to fight this cancer? It will take me away from you, My Dear Readers.

.

This Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma has the power to silence my voice and take me from your side. It can, and (without your help and donations) it will! I am not afraid of death. One cannot spend a lifetime; around death, writing about death, and working around death without growing a thick skin. I do not fear what this cancer can and will take from me. What I do fear is what it will take from; Allen and Alexander… and YOU, My Dear Readers.

.

You see, I have so much more to give. So much more to write. So many more tales to tell, and so many more people to share. I simply cannot do this ALONE! I am without the (financial) means to battle and BEAT this bodily invader. That is why I have solicited your HELP! For, without your help… I will surely perish.

.

Yet, with your help? I will surely flower! It is just as simple as that. Please. Take the time to look at the campaign. Read my ‘Mission Statement’ and learn WHERE this money will be spent. Drugs, Food, Housing, Transposition… SIMPLE LIFE NESSCEITIES!

.

Please look. PLEASE read. PLEASE HELP BY DONATING… TODAY!

.

Adieu!

Thank YOU!
