Help Hunter - A Great Dad (and PJ Fan!)

vant0037vant0037 Posts: 5,254
Hello all,

My wife and I have some great friends and neighbors, Kristen and Hunter, who have three great kids.  Hunter and Kristen are Pearl Jam fans (word is, Kristen even got some wine from Ed at the 2003 Fargo show!).

This past November, the family got some devastating news that Hunter has glioblastoma (e.g. "brain cancer").  This is an aggressive form of cancer, and so Hunter immediately went into surgery and is receiving treatment.  Hunter is one of the most friendly, patient and good-humored people I know, and Kristen is every bit his equal in that department.  It's a bit cliche to say, but truly, this couldn't happen to a nicer, funnier, better family. 

As you might imagine, the costs associated with treatment are staggering (to say the least), and so a great group of friends and family is organizing a charitable benefit for them this weekend in St. Paul.  There will be lots of fun donation opportunities there, including a silent auction with lots of good stuff, like Pearl Jam items, vinyl records (yes, Pearl Jam), sports collectibles, concert tickets, and other great stuff.  The event is being held at Bad Weather Brewing in St. Paul, on Saturday, February 16 from 5pm-9pm.

Now, if you can't join us in cold, snowy St. Paul, you can still donate online at the Go Fund Me link below.  I've also included the Facebook page for the event.

If you are able to help, please consider donating.  These are very deserving people who need our help.

Take care and thanks for listening!
