on behalf of Erik Bergstrom
 BROOKLYN, NY
Comedian, artist and writer Erik Bergstrom has been diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin's Lymphoma. This means lymphoma has spread throughout his body, including his bone marrow.  While the disease has done a great deal of damage to Erik, his doctors are extremely optimistic about his survival and recovery.  

Erik has started chemotherapy, and will continue for the next six months.  He has been unable to work throughout this ordeal and bills are piling up.  He will need to buy many different medications, take taxis to and from chemo, eat organically and naturally, and stay warm during the bitter NYC winter.  This is where you come in.

We are looking to raise $50,000 to help Erik make it through stupid cancer.  Please dig deep.  New York City is an expensive place to get sick.

Thank you to everybody who donated to Erik's campaign, spread word of it throughout social media, and supported him throughout his chemotherapy. I am happy to say Erik has finished chemo, moved into a new apartment and has begun living his life again. He would never be set up and ready to get back to it without al of your love and support. It's been really amazing seeing the response to Erik's crisis.

Erik is furiously drawing pictures to all the really generous people and sending them out . Keep an eye on your mailbox. And go see Erik out and about in NYC performing stand up all over the city, and Cobra Club Friday nights in Bushwick at 9.

Erik's cancer is officially in remission, but chemotherapy is kicking his ass. Please take a moment to share and donate. And watch this great video Travis Irvine made. #fuckcancer #fuckchemo

We're almost at $40,000!!!!! Keep giving, Keep sharing, Keep giving again. Erik is 1/3 of the way through chemotherapy, and it's about to start getting rough.

You guys are so amazing. We're over $35,000! The link has been shared on Facebook over 1500 times and almost 500 times on Twitter. Please keep it going. We had an amazing first week of the campaign, but we're not yet at our goal. Also, Erik's bones hurt, so give a little cheddar to make him feel better. You are all angels.

It will suck if the treatments work and then doing all these drawings kills you.

1) Warhol predicted this. (He said everyone would get cancer for at least 15 minutes.) 2) I LOVE The King Of Fun Erik Bergstrom! Don't die, dude! (There are a lot of OTHER humans who need to croak first!) (including me!)

Dude - we should talk somehow. All the way over in London, I'm basically in the same situation but stage IV NON-hodgkins for the 2nd time. Do you need stem cell treatment to replace your bone marrow? I could definitely do with advice on how to make my gofundme campaign as successful as yours is! Do you a swap if my cells are compatible - I just had a huge stem cell harvest and have a lot spare! No idea how you go about finding out about compatibility though...
