Help Pete Beat This Thing


As you might know, Pete is in the fight of his life against non-Hodgkin lymphoma. It is as tough a fight as you can imagine and while Pete is as tough as they come, it is pushing him to the limit.

Seven months of chemo, severe pain and nausea have left Pete unable to work and with depleted finances.

We are trying to connect everyone around the country that has known Pete throughout his travels to pool resources and lend Pete a hand in his time of need.

Any funds that you might be able to contribute will go directly to Pete's food, rent and medical co-payment bills - which are now amounting to several thousand dollars per month. Pete needs to focus all his efforts on fighting cancer and healing himself. Any assistance you can send will be of immeasurable help.
