Help Michael English Fight Cancer

Our friend (G) Michael English has been diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer and could use your help.

You may not know Gary Michael English but you have probably crossed paths. Michael, as I know him, is a gregarious artist from the San Lorenzo Valley. Often seen painting and drawing in the valley or just talking and spreading cheer, he has made an indelible impression in our redwood paradise.

Michael is a Plantronics alumni who has assisted in the support and creation of many local art projects and murals as well as spending time on the board of the Santa Cruz Mountains Art Center in Ben Lomond. 

Michael has the soul of an engineer and is the manager of his community water company.
He is a husband to Marsha and doting father to Jen his adult special needs daughter.

Though he has basic insurance coverage many associated costs are not covered.

+ Travel/Transportation
+ Counseling
+ Deductibles
+ Co-pays
+ In-home care
+ Extended treatments

This is really just a partial list. As a husband and father of a special needs daughter there are innumerable responsibilities that will be very difficult to meet as Michael fights this battle.

I am starting with a minimal goal of $3000 though this will increase as specific treatments and costs arise.
