Lisa Kill Cancer

I'm Levi. My wife is Lisa Hammer. Yes. The very same. You know her. You love her. For those who don't know her, she's a very well respected independent musician and filmmaker.

Right now she is fighting breast cancer.

You would think that would be enough to deal with. The trouble is that it takes both of us, as independent artists, to make enough money. Without the dual income we could easily and quickly fall behind on our regular bills. In this regard, she spoke before a congressional panel this Monday, May 2nd, 2016, to address the difficulties independent artists face with protecting their intellectual property and ability to make a living.

Our lives are pretty streamlined as we put most of our money back into our work. Our insurance covers a generous portion of the medical bills that will be coming in but we are still on the hook for the rest of it. Even with the coverage we will be on the hook for thousands of dollars.

So we are looking down the barrel of lost income and unanticipated bills.

We would really be thankful to anyone who could help us through the next six to nine months. It would mean we could focus more on Lisa's health and rehabilitation so she can come out the other side stress free and cancer free.

Sincerely,

Levi

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Lisa is having her ECG today as a routine examination. After tomorrow she'll only have three sessions left of this round (which is hopefully the only round!) and then the incredibly "radical double mastectomy" and reconstruction. She'll be laid out for a while after that.

Science!

Just a heads up for those of you who came for the Venture Bros incentives: You should email Michelle at michellemcguckin4@gmail.com with your contact info after you donate so she can send you your swag.

Alright everyone!

Lisa is back in NYC after a really successful screening of the Sisters Plotz at the Egyptian Theatre. The response was great and the Q&A went really well!

She's back to her chemo schedule. Just five more sessions to go and then the radical mastectomy!

Otherwise she's in great spirits, doing well, and rocking her bald head like the punk she it! I'll post some pictures soon!

We are so close to our goal. I hope you can help us spread the word!

Thank you, all, again!

Lisa is taking a week off of chemo so she can fly out to Los Angeles and present the film she's directed. It's finally ready and screening at the world famous Egyptian Theater on Hollywood Blvd. This was long scheduled and thanks to you she doesn't have to miss it.

Anyone who is in the LA area, come to the show on May 21st at the Egyptian. It's being hosted by American Cinematheque as the first screening to honor underground women filmmakers.

She has also recently had two films archived at the Getty Museum. That's right. Her work is in a museum, now!

Hey everyone! We are really close to our goal. Lisa is halfway through her first round which is a 12 weeks course. Then they will reevaluate from there. She won't be out of the woods then because they'll be performing a radical mastectomy and reconstruction which should put her out of commission for two or three months. That will be the hardest part.

That being said, I'm so glad that we've gotten so much support from our friends and without any hesitation. I'm going to count us as some of the lucky ones.
