Jason Fights Cancer: Island-Style Raffle

Here's our story:  Jason and I started dating in the fall of 2010.  Jason was a full-time college student, working in the local film industry, and building a solid reputation. We hadn't even been together a year, when Jason became very, very ill. We didn't know then that his illness was cancer. Jason has Stage IV colorectal cancer; it metastasized to his liver. We're raising funds to help with medical costs accruing due to his ongoing treatments.  We are a year and 3 months into treatment, but we have a long way to go. This raffle is a way to raise funds to help with expenses related to his illness.  Here's how it works:
