Monday morning March 13, 2017, I go under the knife. The doc will take out both my seminal vesicle and my navel orange sized prostate.  I'm trusting I'm double-covered by both Covered California as well as the city health plan connected to my job.  I anticipate some big old co-pays and other expenses.  On top of all this, I have 3 homeless family members I'm giving aid and comfort to. Plus I'm behind on some big bills including one to my dentist for a new cap on my teeth.

I'm overwhelmingly grateful for your love and support last year.  I owe you all a personalized thank-you note.  I was able to stay in my apartment, pay some old bills, have a little christmas for my son, and stay on my feet.

Bad news: my disability insurance was delayed. I'm not being paid for time off from my job. Bottom line: I need to raise at least another $700 this week so that I can pay rent at the end of the month. I'm expecting to return to work next week. Thank you and much love to you all!

Monday morning March 13 I go under the knife. The doc will remove both my seminal vesicle and my prostate. That glad has swollen to from walnut size to the size of a navel orange. It's time. I'm double covered by California Care and the city health plan connected to my work. However I will encounter some BIG co-pays. Plus at the same time I'm giving aid and comfort to 3 homeless family members. And an assortment of bills I've been putting off paying, including one for a new cap on my teeth.

The money I raised last year helped me stay in my apartment, pay some bills, have a little christmas with my son, and keep me going. I'm grateful for your support and love and I owe all of you a thank-you note.

Thank you, everyone for your help. I should be sending individual thank-you notes to each of you! What's been raised so far has helped me pay rent and a bunch of bills as well as let my son and I have a little Christmas. I've been working like a dog for one of my co-workers himself out on medical leave. Once he's back in mid-March, I'm going to focus on getting more tests and more information about what more I need to do about my prostate cancer. Plus, you-all should know there will be a benefit for me Saturday April 9th at Ashkenaz, 1317 San Pablo Ave near Gilman in Berkeley. Some of my favorite local musicians will be playing there: Maurice Tani, Blame Sally, Stephen Kent, and Eric & Suzy Thompson. A link is...

then scroll down to April 9 Kevin Vance benefit.
This gofundme place is still up in case people want to give but can't go to the show.
Thank you again, everyone. The best people in the world are in my life. That means all of you!
