Help me help Dennis Nyback!

$11,703 of $20,000 goal

Our good friend Dennis Nyback, one of the greatest film fanatics I know (let alone his nearly unparalleled zeal for classic American music and baseball), has cancer. 
The very good news: it is treatable. 
The bad news: his treatment is expensive.
 Like many of us, scraping by is the norm, and Dennis’ expenses will far outstrip his ability to pay. He will need money for co-pays, high deductibles, and living expenses while he misses work shifts. 
Beyond the mere fact that he is such a good friend (we met a few months shy of 40 years ago!) Dennis is a national treasure. I hope you feel even just a little bit the same as I do, and open your purse a bit to help him out in this needful time.
Consider it a donation to the cause of a Bad Bugs Bunny, or Scopitones, or Vaudeville on Film show, a new radio play, or a playlist of the best music you never heard before but now will never forget.
Dennis needs your help. The time is now. You can make no better use of your money. No matter how much you are able to donate, please help. 
And, please, share this a thousand times over.
Thank you very much.
- Kevin (aka Gilbert)

Dear Everyone,
Dennis is a solid half way through his treatment but he needs us again, now more than ever! Things are going well, but he is going through a second surgery, more chemo, and it is a struggle. Everyone is optimistic, and Dennis is a pretty indomitable spirit, but as each round comes he needs to be able to conserve as much energy as possible. The more we can raise, the more time Dennis will have to heal! Even if you have given before, give again! If you haven't yet, please give what you can! Dennis needs us now! Give to this campaign because we need Dennis!

Hello everyone! Dennis is halfway there, and we are... well, not quite so!
Dennis has had his surgery, and is now home, and now begins the second stage of his recovery!

Here's an update from Anne Richardson:
Dennis is out of surgery. It went really well. (Dennis will be) spending the next two weeks recuperating from surgery, then back on chemo for several months.
The doctor is super pleased with the operation (“Used a robot to do it!”), and with Dennis' response to chemo/radiation. After he heals from the operation (about two weeks), he gets another round of chemo, then he is through, and the cancer will be gone.
Hooray for modern medicine!
Dennis is lucky so many people love him.

Thank you to all of you who have donated to this campaign! If you can do so again, it would be great!
Please share this through your social media as well!
Let's get Dennis through this, together!
Thank you all again!
