THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed to this campaign so far. The amount raised in just a few days has been incredible and overwhelming and I'd like to encourage everyone to keep spreading the word as every dollar raised beyond this initial goal will go a long way. Ian has been a dear friend and bandmate for many years and I'll be helping collect these donations on his behalf and delivering to him as they become available.

Ian and Brooke also wanted to thank you all personally and have forwarded along this message:

Dear everyone,

Thank you.

Your generosity has ensured that Brooke and I will be able to pay for our current stack of medical bills pertaining to my illness, as well as the medical bills which we’ll receive after my transplant surgery.

Your unselfish giving will provide me and my family with the peace of mind that, without question, we’ll be able to pay for the extremely costly procedure itself, post-surgical hospitalizations, outpatient procedures, inpatient procedures, medications and medical supplies, and at-home nursing care that I will require to regain my health after the surgery.

Your kindness and unselfishness has demonstrated to me and my family that I am surrounded and loved by the best people on the face of the Earth. We are FOREVER in your debt, and if there’s anything we can ever do to help you, we want you to know that we will return the generosity you’ve shown us, without hesitation.

We are lucky to be part of a community who values charity, generosity, and selflessness so highly. We love you all, we truly do, and we hope this message expresses the overwhelming gratitude that we feel for each and every one of you.

Your humbled, and loving friends,

Ian Kaplan and Brooke Medlin
