So, raising money won't actually buy anyone's way out of cancer, but we can still try to help our friend Erik/Stitchy stay afloat while he goes through treatment!! Show Stitchy the support he'd show us if we were in the process of kicking cancer's ass!

Taken from Erik's Facebook page:
"To cut to the chase, last month I was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer. This kind of cancer in a non-smoker at my age is extremely rare. There isn't really any rhyme or reason to why this happened. It's just one of those things you have to chalk up to the chaotic nature of life.

As far as treatments go I'm currently undergoing daily radiation and chemo therapy until May 6th at which point we will hopefully be able to schedule me for surgery to remove the cancerous portion of my lung.

All in all, this is a great challenge but I'm mentally prepared, in good spirits and I'm maintaining an extremely positive attitude through the whole process. I'm fully determined to fight this thing like a rabid animal and come out the other side stronger than before.

I want to thank everyone who has been sending well wishes and the show of support from you all has been simply awe inspiring. After this whole thing is said and done prepare yourselves for bi-coastal, Viking themed parties to celebrate life and the crushing of adversity."

We all know Stitchy one way or another, and we all love him, because he is one of those dudes you can't help but smile with. He's one of those rare people who is always legit and genuine, and who has been a friend to people from all walks of life. He is not one to ask for help, for donations, or most of all for pity, but who the hell cares what he wants, you know he'd support every last one of us if we needed it.

So, I have set this up to go directly to his PayPal account (which apparently he didn't know he had, so good sleuthing on the part of some more friends!), and even if you can give just a buck or two, it's something, and it's something that will help Erik stay afloat while he is missing work in order to beat the piss out of cancer.

Thanks to any who contribute- he deserves all of our support!!

(P.S. I am only the one setting this up because I have fundraising experience, this is not exclusively my idea or anything like that, I'm just clicking buttons.)
