    Josh, I am happy to donate a fishing trip to this fundraiser as well. Let me know how to do that via personal messages.

    Josh, My 2 emails to Ed and Scott, at The Confluence Fly Shop, have been returned as "permanently failed". Please advise.

    Sent you a PM with some other contact info. I have no idea why their shop emails aren't working. Computers, you know? But I'll swing into the shop tomorrow and let them know.

    Done.

    My parents have worked at St Jude Children's hospital in Memphis TN since 1987. If Neilan needs backup, or if remission is not achieved, St Jude covers costs and has housing close by. Most of the Pedi Leukemia protocols come from St Jude research, so if you are bombarded with fundraising stuff from Marlo Thomas and other folks around X-mas know those monies have and continue to go to outstanding science and clinical treatments.

    If you are ever in Memphis, visiting St Jude will restore your faith in humanity. The sight of seeing sick kids,really sick kids, undergoing bone marrow transplants and other chemo and XRT regimens that would floor most of us will melt your heart.

    Good luck Neilan, here's hoping you're on the water soon!

    Went down to neiland's benefit event this evening. Super cool to see so many people out supporting a little fighter. The theme was "super hero" and how super neiland was going to defeat leukemia.

    I'm not too proud to say that I got a little choked up.

    Fuck cancer.

    There's a direct donation link in the first post that should work. Let me know of it doesn't.

    And thanks!

    I have a couple glass 8 or 9 weight lamiglas glass blanks. Should I just sell them in the classifieds and give the money?
    One is a honey blank. The other 2 are S-glass. Maybe I should try Clarks? I've honestly never done an e-bay thinf either. I'd happily drop 'em off to anyone w/ a pay pal rating to sell there and pay for shipping provided the proceeds go to the super hero.
    I'll look around for other stuff too. Seems like everyone should have stuff lying around that they can sell and give the cash.

    Go Sox,

    Shit. Just saw the deal at Ed'S place. I'll check in this week. These may get more cash outside a raffle though.
