For our friends Dave & Keota

We love Dave and Keota, and we all want to help them get through this journey and kick cancer's ass. While we're thankful that they are financially secure and that insurance covers much of Dave's treatment, there are costs for travel and accommodations that are out-of-pocket.

While they remain solvent and did not ask us to do this, the last thing our friends need is to stress over these added costs during this time, when they should be 100% focused on Dave's recovery. We are all here to help and support them. If some of us make a SMALL contribution, it will help make this journey just a little easier on our buddies. 

We know you want to help, and this is an easy way to do it. Many of you have already sent gifts, cooked meals, etc. Please do not feel obligated to give dollars. What they need most are love and empathy. Thank you!

Lisa Thammarat (Keota's sister) and Jim Rapp (Dave's brother-from-another-mother)
