Earl Maddox Needs Your Help

Our friend Earl "Bubba" Maddox is battling colon cancer and needs our help.  Doctors found a 9cm mass in his colon shortly after Memorial Day, and they need to shrink it before they can operate.  Chemotherapy was unsuccessful as Earl is allergic to the drugs; they hope that radiation therapy will reduce the mass to an operable size.

Earl was about to film a specially written part for Quentin Tarantino in "Django Unchained" when this disease made it impossible for him to work.  He is receiving care at the Tulane Medical Center and could really use our help with the mounting bills of his treatment, not to mention daily expenses.

Earl has always helped others by playing in benefits or lending a helping hand with hard work.  For those of you who remember Greg Smalley, Earl was one of his primary caregivers during Greg's long battle with AIDS.

He's a tough sonofabitch and will beat this thing with our help.  Please donate what you can.
