Help Frank Jude Boccio through his cancer journey

Our good friend and long-time Modo Yoga Teacher Training faculty member, Frank Jude Boccio, is dealing with the process of treating and healing through his relationship with prostate cancer. 

Though this is serious and requires full attention, Frank is approaching this with his usual sense of curiosity, insight, research and equanimity.  Nonetheless, there are still many bills that accumulate due to lost working opportunities, treatments that insurance doesn't cover, and the general expenses associated with treating cancer.  Frank would never reach out for help, and so it is incumbent on all of us to exercise the beauty of sangha, and support someone that requires our assistance.  

The expenses are accumulating quickly, so we would like this to be a quick fundraising endeavour.  Please donate what you feel comfortable with, and if it is not in your means, then I am sure Frank would ask that you re-dedicate yourself to waking up, helping those who require your help, and taking time to get on your cushion.  You can also help by sharing this link and telling others how important this man is to our community and to our teaching.  

The funds will be used to pay for an MRI, two pathology reports, four oncologist consults, and a SpaceOar procedure—all of which have already been completed, and that Frank has had to charge to his credit cards. Any funds left over will go to paying for radiation therapy, which starts in two weeks. We're hoping to start sending funds to Frank via wire-transfer as soon as possible. 

Please remember that Frank also has a little girl, Giovanna, to care for, and this fundraising campaign will serve to make sure that she is also supported and provided with the care of sangha.  

Thank you to you all for your care, consideration, generosity, and your continued dedication to practice.  The next Buddha is sangha... 

Love, 
Ted, Jess, and the Modo Yoga International team.
