Stefan Karl's Year of Healing
And now Stefan Karl needs our help.
Stefan has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The operation he has had will prevent him from working for up to a year.
We want him to use that year to rest and recuperate so that he can once again return to what he does best - making kids smile all over planet Earth.
We are raising funds to help Stefan and his family survive the coming year. Not only will they need assistance with medical bills, but it's important that Stefan be allowed to heal his body and spirit without the additional burden of financial need.
We appreciate any amount of gift you are able to extend to Stefan and his family. As he moves from this difficult time toward a full recovery, we ask for your generosity, your prayers and good wishes.
As Robbie Rotten would ask, "Why are those people making all that noise!?"
Let's answer Robbie with a thunderous noise of gratitude and joy for everything he's given to the world of children's entertainment!
Help spread the word!
But because I am determined to see that there are no stones left unturned, I'm increasing the goal amount starting today. Because if we've learned anything from all this, we learned that Robbie Rotten fans are creative, supportive, a little crazy and above all, generous with their affection.
Remember -- December 11th is the day you will be able to see Stefan on YouTube live, performing the song that has swept the world, "We Are Number One," with the multiple Robbie's who appeared with him in the video.
And don't tell anyone...but there's *another* little surprise for those who tune in...
Hi Stefan. I can't donate, but I hope you can beat this. You mean a lot to so many people, myself because your character always made me laugh, but countless others for many reasons. I have autism, so LazyTown meant a lot more to me than most and Robbie Rotten always made me smile when he appeared to spoil Sportacus's plans and turn the town back to it's name roots. It always made me laugh when he was clumsy and scowly and you did it perfectly. I don't want LazyTown doesn't lose it's best resident yet, so please keep fighting. You never know when that dreadful Sportacus may come back! Feel better soon! ♥
This is absolutely heartbreaking news for me and so many others. I can't express my sympathy enough, Stefan. I've read through your AMA on Reddit, and your hope and bright spirit is simply inspiring! You have so much strength and I truly believe you will make it through this! You've brought a lot of joy to my life. Many laughs and smiles during difficult times. Thank you so much for being such a fantastic and genuine human being. I wish I could donate even the slightest bit but I'm unable to. My family is also struggling after my dog had gone through cancer treatment this past year. But I have done the best I could by sharing your campaign everywhere. I hope I was successful in helping you the only way I could. I wish I could do more. I hope with all my heart for the best for you and your family. And thank you so very much for everything you've done. Thank you, thank you!
