UPDATE ::
Dear Friends, Brothers & Sisters,
               **Thank you all for helping me in my fight against cancer. I am in treatment everyday-- fighting this cancer since December 12th of 2018. I am literally put in a “Linear Accelerator” for every treatment.

  When Brother Eddie & I thought we could only ask for “part of the Debt” that I have acquired - due to the Cancer Treatment"- We were asking for 10,000.  Well the actual costs attributed to this entire fight & debt acquired is at $35,000. **I am not asking you to donate again ( I appreciate the love, brotherhood, and everything you've done). I am merely asking you to pass this message, and Link on to anyone else that could, and has the ability to help.

 I am overwhelmed by your support...... this I will never forget. ----Sincerely, James Macleod

My Previous Message :

Dear Friends, Brothers & Sisters,

      I was diagnosed with cancer in the later part of 2018. Being a fairly private person, I didn’t tell anyone but my family, and a couple of close friends.
   However, things started to culminate in December of 2018, by then the Prostrate Cancer had shown to have developed itself into a dangerous level.  I was diagnosed with "Malignant neoplasm of prostrate cancer”.  It was rated at a high-risk level, so I had to start treatment immediately.  Due to the radiation treatments, I haven’t been able to work since my last job as a video-engineer in the 1st week of Dec. 2018.
    For the last 10 years I have been taking care of my ailing mother, Virginia, (who suffered from Alzheimer’s) and this depleted any of my savings. She sadly passed away gracefully in the latter part of 2018. Not to long after mom’s passing, my urologist sent me in for a series of tests which revealed I had cancer.  Needless to say – it hasn’t been easy since then.
    Now it’s into March of 2019 and at the moment I have emptied out my bank account and liquidated all my assets to raise money to pay the accumulating living expenses, debts, and medical bills. Everyday the expenses build up higher, and higher.

         It seems I can’t do this myself, so I am humbly reaching out to you for help,  my friends, my production world colleagues, 37593146_1552017261420585_r.jpegmy co-workers, and  my brothers & sisters of Local #16. 
                                              ---  with sincerest  gratitude,   James MacLeod

Dear Friends , Brothers & Sisters, Co-workers, Facebook Friends, and fellow Artists ;
I haven't posted much here , because I've been sick
( most likely the combination of the radiation , and the pills I have to take ) .... but my spirit is strong , and I had a little energy today to write to you.
Once again , I want to "Thank You All" for the kind words , prayers, and donations. This entire event in my life has given me a wake -up call - to what is important in Life. I have changed my diet, lifestyle, and attitude towards the world we live in. I intend to live a ; Healthier , more Involved, and Kinder Lifestyle, paying more attention to Family, Friends, and the needs of my Brothers, and Sisters in Labor and the Arts.
*Speaking of the Arts -- this is a photo of Chet Helm's ( honored Concert Promoter & Ultimate Hippie), and I shooting video & film at the "35th Anniversary of the Summer of Love"...... ahhh the memories.
----- Sincerely, James
