FUND RAISER & LEAVE DONATION THREAD
FOR FREEPER JEFF HEAD


Jeff at his daughter's (Becki) wedding in 2009.

Jim Robinson, the owner of FreeRepublic has graciously approved this Fund Raiser and Leave Donation thread that a number of us wanted to put together for well-known Freeper, and our friend, Jeff Head. (Moderators, please consider keeping this thread at the top of its category until the goals are reached.)

In December 2009 Jeff was diagnosed with bone cancer. A rare sacral chordoma was found on his sarcum. His only medical recourse is very major and dangerous surgery to completely remove his sacrum and then rebuild the structure. The two surgeries necessary are currently scheduled for April 27th and April 30th, 2010. This surgery will require a four month period of hospital stay, recovery, rehabilitation, and radiation at the MD Anderson Medical Center in Houston, Texas, which is 2000 miles away from Jeff's home in Idaho.

Any freeper who can, and who will not themselves be put out either financially or from a leave basis by so doing, is aksed to consider donating so as to help Freeper Jeff Head through this crisis. Your faith and prayers on behalf of Jeff and his family are also requested. There are two ways to help, monetarily and with leave. will track the donations here on this thread against the goals.


FUND DONATIONS : (Goal: $10,000. Current amount donated $1,605.00)

Jeff has good medical insurance, but the four month stay in Houston is going to require significant expense beyond his means including an apartment very close to MD Anderson with handicap services and gated for security. His rehabilitation will be a major effort and will not come cheaply, either in terms of pain and effort or cost. Jeff has an additional $1,000 per month he is applying in addition to maintaining his household in Idaho while he is gone. But for he and his wife Gail to stay in Houston for the four months is going to cost between $2,200 and $2,500 per month more than he has.

If you are willing, and able, you can donate funds to Jeff to help him while in Houston at the following link, either by PayPal, Credit Card, or by Check to the address indicated.

DONATE HERE TO THE JEFF HEAD CHORDOMA CANCER FUND

Any funds left over after Jeff's rehab will be donated on a 50/50 basis to the Chordoma Foundation which is a non-profit group dedicated to research and education about Chordoma Cancer, and to Freerepublic.com.


LEAVE DONATIONS : (Goal: 540 hours. Current amount donated: 385 hours)

DONATION THREAD FOR
FREEPER JEFF HEAD


This would NOT be posted if it were not a significant need!

PLEASE PING YOUR LISTS
& BE IN PRAYER AS TO HOW YOU CAN HELP

would you do me a favor? Many FReepers just have broken away from politics since the election & various other events that have demoralized our constituents. If you have any email addys' would you share this with them? Many no doubt know Jeff & his wonderful contributions over the years for our cause and love his zeal toward and love of our country



Please continue to pray for Jeff & family.. for his healing, for their strength and for the many matters of life to be simplified so he can devote his attention to his health.

I can’t do a whole lot right now DollyCali, but you’ll see a steady trickle through the end of the year.

If my fellow FReepers can all do something, we’ll get the job done for Jeff.

Thank you for providing a method for us to reach out to Jeff.
