“Fight for ALF” Update: Laura’s Not Feeling Well, So Buy Her a Beer

Gather ’round, Potato Nation.

After blasting off to a great start in our quest to raise money for Laura “angrylittlefeet” Nicholson‘s Hodgkin’s Lymphoma-related medical costs, the funding drive has tapered off considerably. We’re still ahead of schedule at $2,105 raised so far, but we need your help and generosity to jump-start this thing.

And look, not to prey on your sympathies or anything, but Laura ain’t in the best shape right now. Two nights ago, she was admitted to the ER due to fluid in her lungs and around her heart. (“Still trying to hang tough guys. I’ll let you all know as soon as i get paroled.”)

Here’s what I suggest. The next time you go out to a bar/club/concert/MMA event, buy your friend Laura a drink. And by that I mean, visit our “Fight for ALF” Indiegogo page and donate the cost of that drink to our cause, via PayPal or credit/debit card. Even if you can only afford a $2 PBR, Laura will eGuzzle that thing in spirit, with gratitude, from her hospital bed.

Thanks so much for listening, and please donate today if you haven’t yet. After all, we would do the same for you.

Reminder: Donate to “CagePotato’s Fight for ALF” and Help Support Laura “angrylittlefeet” Nicholson’s Fight Against Cancer

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.

Thanks again.

Thanks again, you guys.

Fuck Cancer: Donate to “CagePotato’s Fight for ALF” and Help Out a Beloved Member of the Potato Nation


(A personal message from Karmaatemycat, recorded last night.)

For years, Laura “angry little feet” Nicholson (aka “ALF”) has been a calming, motherly influence on CagePotato.com’s forums and comment sections. Just kidding — she’s a salty s.o.b., meaner than a sack full of rattlesnakes…and we wouldn’t change her for the world. A passionate supporter of mixed martial arts and a superstar on twitter (@angrylittlefeet), Laura has become a true friend to many folks in the Potato Nation.

Yesterday, we learned that Laura was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (“The big C“) and we were devastated. But we know that she won’t back down from this fight, and we’re going to have her back every step of the way.

Like so many Americans afflicted with cancer, Laura has no health insurance, and has already gone $10,000 into debt. We just want to help dig her out and raise her spirits. Every little bit helps, right? So we’ve started an Indiegogo page — CagePotato’s Fight for ALF — and we’ll be asking for your donations* over the next couple months.

The $5,000 goal that we’ve set for this campaign represents a tiny slice of the financial burden that Laura will have to endure. That’s the reality. But we want ALF to know that we have her back, just as we’d have the back of any devoted CP family member who falls on hard times.

Give a dollar, give $5, give whatever you feel comfortable with. (By the way, a $50 donation gets you a CP t-shirt. A $1,000 donation gets you a live cam show with either BG or Karmaatemycat. Ten minutes, anything goes. Yeah, we’re working on better prizes.) All funds raised will go to Laura, even if we don’t reach our goal. Considering that tens of thousands of people visit this site every day, we’re confident that we can hit it.

We intend to mobilize the MMA community to help spread the word about Laura’s health situation and our efforts. In the meantime, visit the “CagePotato’s Fight for A.L.F.” Indiegogo page and join the fight. Thanks guys. We friggin’ love all of you.

‘angry little feet’ Kicks All Our Asses in the No Fear/Strikeforce Pick ‘Em Contest

Frank Shamrock MMA Strikeforce Nick Diaz
(If only you had some of that No Fear Bloodshot energy drink in your corner, Frank. The second round would have been a completely different story.)

It’s official: With a whopping 13 points, CP reader "angry little feet" blew away the competition in last week’s pick ‘em contest, and scores a No Fear prize package for his efforts. Here’s how he did it…

Diaz via Submission round 2 (2 points)
Melendez T/KO round 2 (3 points)
Smith T/KO round 3 (3 points)
Santos T/KO round 1 (2 points)
Rogers T/KO round 2 (3 points)

So, Lil’ Feet, send your address and shirt/hoodie size to feedback@cagepotato.com and we’ll get your bounty right out to you. In second place was G-Smooth with 11 points. The runner-up performance entitles G to a CagePotato t-shirt; send us your address and size if you’re interested. And special CP back-pats go to Burzerkers, joneser5, coach pablo, and Freddy Fangers for racking up 10 points apiece, tying them all for third place.

Coming in with a mad-respectable nine points was our very own Ben Fowlkes, who, like so many of you, got screwed by Frank Shamrock. And slightly further down the list with five points was Ben Goldstein, whose only consolation is that he didn’t score four points, which would tie him for dead last with all those dumbasses who thought Abongo was going to pull out the upset.

Many thanks to everyone who entered, and remember to visit EarnSomeCred.com for your chance to win a VIP trip to an upcoming MMA event.
