We’d like to start by thanking each and every one of you who have already donated to the “CagePotato’s Fight for ALF” Indiegogo page. Thanks to your generous contributions, we have already managed to raise $1,040 to help Laura “angrylittlefeet” Nicholson pay for the various expenditures related to her recent Hodgkin’s Lymphoma diagnosis. You guys are truly amazing.
That being said, we still have a ways to go if we are to reach our goal of $5000. So if you happen to have a few extra bucks laying around, please donate to this good cause today and help support a beloved member of the Potato Nation. And to give you an update on ALF‘s current situation, we go to none other than the woman herself:
Greetings Potato Nation.
Our fearless leader, Ben, has asked me to write a little something to let you good folks know what’s going on with me while I go thru being treated for my cancer.
First of all I want to thank each of you for your generosity. Whether you sent kind words, donated, or just took the time to read and maybe share my site. I am grateful to all of you.
Let me just say that before my immune system took a fast trip right down the shitter I was an optometric tech. I am not a writer nor do I play one on TV. At times my grammar would probably give even the most sympathetic English teacher conniptions. And my relationship with punctuation is shaky at best. So bitch all you want in the comments, I realize it’s kind of a national pastime around here, but don’t say you weren’t warned.
Had my first official appointment with the cancer Doc last Friday. Up until now it’s just been a shit-ton of tests. So we go thru all the standard crap and of course he sends me for more tests. Another CAT scan, a PET scan ( which I suspect is much more unpleasant than it sounds) bloodwork etc. After all that they shuffle me off to begin chemo. Sounds like a party. In hell.
As far as how I’m feeling – well I’m anemic as hell so I am tired all of the time. But other than that not too bad all things considered.

Visit the “CagePotato’s Fight for A.L.F.” Indiegogo page today and contribute whatever you can; $50 gets you a CP “Pull No Punches” shirt, $1000 gets you a “No Questions Asked” webcam show with BG or Karma, and Danga is still willing to take “Head Kicks for Cancer” from anyone who lives in the Boston area for the low, low price of $200. Thanks again, you guys.
