Thread: News about S.J.

  1. #1

    Default News about S.J.

    Hi everyone,

    I hope SJ and Tree won't mind my posting about what's going on with him right now. In a nutshell, SJ has been told that his pancreas isn't working at all anymore. Without a lifelong regimen of the proper medication, he doesn't have very long to live.

    Unfortunately, the medication is frightfully expensive and he must start it right away or the muscle damage - including to his heart - may be irreversible. His friends and fellow authors on the Beyond the Veil blog are mounting an effort to help him get the medication he needs.

    Until we can get other, long-term plans off the ground, we have set up a way for his friends and fans to donate via Paypal. Please, if you can help, even just a buck or two, it would be deeply appreciated.

    The link is on our Dunvegas free anthology page. Scroll down and click the "Donate" button.

    We on the BtV blog are not willing to let SJ go without a fight. We hope you'll join us.

    That's wonderful for y'all to do Carolan.

    He's a fantastic man and I don't want to lose him without a fight either!

    OMGsh, that is sooo sad. I am new here but SJ and Tree were awesome to me during Springshowers and made me feel so at home. If you don't mind I would like to help spread the word. I didn't know he was ill until today, thanks to CharmedGirl for getting me the link to this post. Please if there is anything I can do don't hesitate to ask and I'm headed over to the site to donate.

    I know this isn't my business but can they do a pancreas transplant??? My father was a transplant patient and I know its not easy but because of my dad's transplant we got to keep him with us for another 24yrs... I will keep him and Tree in my prayers!!!

    I've never heard of a Pancreas transplant Brandy but I'm sure it can be done. It'd be beneficial for diabetes patients you'd think.

    I know that i have heard of them. Alot of times they are transplanted with other organs like livers and intestinal tract in children with issues there. I hope that this all works out for them. I sent a donation. I would like to help spread the word about the site with the download and donation info, but I am waiting to make sure it is okay.

    I'm sure it would be okay. The more the merrier for donations.

    Brandy, to be sure about it you could PM Tree. I know she's been working a lot, but she will answer when she gets time.

    Thank you, I was afraid to bother her. Especially with all that she is going through. I will send a short msg and see what she thinks.

    Thank you,
