Khaki's Cancer Fund

On March 24, 2007, we wrote to this person who called herself Khaki:

"Hola, Khaki!

First of all, is that really your name? we love it...

Secondly, we can't help but notice that your contributions to YL are consistently interesting, informative and honest... the three watchwords of what we want Yucatan Living to be for it's readers.

We are writing to ask if you might consider becoming a guest contributor to our pages? We're sure you have something interesting to tell us all....

We look forward to hearing from you!!

Working Gringos"

The rest is sort of history.... Khaki has been writing our weekly Yucatan News since then. It's been almost TEN years. Her dedication to doing a good job and her love of the Yucatan are unmatched, and we have always appreciated her contribution.

Now it turns out, Khaki is sick. She has been diagnosed with lung cancer and has been in and out of the hospital for the past few months. Khaki has never had a lot of money, and we are worried that this sickness is putting a huge strain on her. She would never THINK of asking for money, so we are asking on her behalf.

If you have ever read the news on Yucatan Living and appreciated the information, or if you have ever appreciated her big heart or her indomitable, feisty persnicketyness on, we urge you to donate something.

The funds will go directly to Khaki's Paypal account.

If you want to know more about Khaki, please read this article. If you have questions, please leave a comment on the article and we will do our best to answer them.

We thank you in advance for your help! Some extra funds will give Khaki some breathing room, and will let her know how much we all appreciate her! Both will go a long way towards helping her heal.
