Supporting Bill, Robin, and Sawyer

Bill Gerstel and Robin Burchil are my personal heroes. They offer their love and friendship free from judgement and have been an integral part of our city family since those long ago days of early mornings with babies in Tompkins Square Park. They have given their unyielding support through the many stages of our lives and it is now time to provide them with our support in return.

Bill is facing a terminal diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, the illness he beat back so many years ago. One way friends can provide comfort from near or far is to contribute to this fund. Bill and Robin will be able to access funds as they are donated,  enabling them to manage  this fresh wave of medical bills, order food and other daily necessities, and allow them to celebrate the time Bill has as they try to make some personal dreams come true.  The need is immediate; pancreatic cancer is not kind or patient. 

Thank you for your support in making this difficult time a little less challenging for Bill, Robin, and Sawyer.
