updates and fundraiser info

Happy Friday!

Here are a few updates from this past week.

On Tuesday, Jeremy spent the day at Stanford to prepare for his bone marrow transplant on December 2.

He got set up on the radiation machine and left with another tattoo. (In order to target the same exact spot each time, the patients have small dots tattooed so everything lines up correctly during radiation.)

In the halls of the hospital there are people voluntarily playing music and giving massages.

Wednesday was Jeremy's "Going Away Party". Everyone proudly wore their Keep Calm and Fuck Cancer t-shirts (sales coming SOON).

Here's what it looks like when a bartender tries to get a bunch of unruly folks in line for a group picture:

Wishing you the very best of luck on your bone marrow transplant in December. You and your family will most certainly be in our prayers and we'll be sending the best "good luck" vibes we can on December 2.
