Patrick Sheridan's Medical Fund

As many of you may already know, earlier this year our dear friend Patrick Sheridan began feeling ill and losing weight at an alarming rate. His doctors have put him through rounds of testing over the last few months, and on June 20th they found a tumor in his pancreas.

This is a terrifying diagnosis for those of us who know and love him, and the first question that always gets asked is "What can I do to help?" The good news is there's a tangible way for all of us to contribute to his recovery! For as serious of a condition as this is, there are treatment options available, and Patrick intends to do everything he can to fight this disease - and win!

His medical team is working with him to form a treatment plan, but while Patrick has health insurance, there are many expenses that are going to be out-of-pocket. He's on a specialized diet that includes lots of juicing, and is looking into the possibility of alternative forms of medicine (including IV Vitamin C and cannabis oil), as well as the possibility of traveling internationally to centers with a broader range of treatment options than are currently allowed in the United States.

If you've ever met Patrick, then you already know that he's one of the most generous people you could ever hope to meet. He's a man who gives of himself to anyone and everyone he knows, whether they're one of his students, a fellow filmmaker, or just a friend in need. His work through the Film Acting Academy of Denver, The Bug Theatre, and The Emerging Filmmakers Project has helped shaped the minds and careers of hundreds. He's a dedicated stay-at-home father to his sons Elliot and Finnegan, a teacher and mentor to many, and a friend to all of us. There's simply no way to calculate the number of lives that have been impacted for the better simply by having him in it.

Patrick can beat this, but he can't do it alone. Every dollar we raise will be used to fund his treatment and help him navigate the road to recovery. Please help us help Patrick continue to be there for his sons, his fellow artists, his family and his many friends by contributing to his treatment fund today. No donation is too small and will be greatly appreciated!
