Join Team Durant!


Please help by offering friendship, emotional and financial support to Doug & Laura Durant.


Doug is in a huge battle with lymphoma and will need our ongoing support and love to give him the energy to beat this. Doug's monthly insurance premium is over $2000 a month and the insurance does not cover all of the expenses associated with a lengthy hospital stay. Their portion of the expense (not covered by insurance) can reach $20,000.


After spending most of the summer in hospital, Doug has now moved to the transplant center and is in the preparation phase for a stem-cell transplant.  This is an ongoing battle Doug is fighting. He will spend many weeks in hospital and then many more months at home recuperating. The long-term care is something they cannot financially endure and any donation (even $5) will help them. Let's show him that he's not alone.


As you well know, Durant Communications makes a tremendous contribution to actors, producers, theatres, and teachers, by providing audition information, class information, and "Starving Actor" discounts, to name of few of their many services.


It's time to give back.


Help by donating, posting videos, well wishes, pictures and by sharing this page... show Doug and Laura that they are in our thoughts and that TEAM DURANT is behind them.
