Adrian's Care Campaign

Adrian Lemberger could use a little support from us -- his friends -- right now. After battling what he thought was the flu for the past couple of weeks, he was just dianosed with something much more sinister: Acute Myeloid Leukemia. 

Luckily for Adrian, he was able to quickly begin treatment at a Chicago hospital, where he is expected to to remain for the next 30 days.

Being in the hospital SUCKS, friends. Being in the hospital for a long period of time means putting your entire life on hold - no going to work, no band practice, no spending quality time with your child, no walking your dog. But here is where we come in:

We can HELP Adrian by simply relieving some of the financial stress of having to put his life on temporary hold while he kicks cancer to the curb. We can take care of the mundane stuff that is bound to pile up, so he can concentrate on JUST GETTING HEALTHY.
Maybe you know Adrian as the ridiculously talented frontman to the Chicago-based band, Even Thieves. Maybe you know Adrian as the doting father to his young son, Cosmo. Maybe you know Adrian from his walks around the neighborhood with his fluffy dog, Cal. Or maybe you've just been lucky enough to call him your friend during his 40 years on this planet.

No matter your connection, please help him out in this time of need. Let's reduce his stress, take care of some bills, and get him healthy.

We love you, Adrian.

12/9/17 - Update: Folks, the generosity you have shown Adrian is truly astounding. Thank you for rallying around our friend in a time of need. I have added Adrian's sister, Ariel Schoeninger, as an administrator to this account. With his blessing, Ariel is able to access the donations and will begin assisting Adrian in handling the financial business of being away from home.
