My Friend Andy needs a miracle

My request to anyone who has ever benefited from ANYTHING I have ever done is that you become a part of Andy’s miracle in any way you can.

His one-minute video explains what he needs far better than I ever could. The brief text below it adds information and context.

Please click his image – OR one of the links below – and donate just one little minute to listening to his message in his own words — then forward it (and/or reblog my plea). 

The greater the number of people who see his message, the greater the likelihood of ALL of us being part of a true miracle – saving the life of a man who will help save the lives of others.

Please, help me make it go viral.

This is a GOOD man

He has donated countless hours to helping others navigate the healthcare maze, even after his own seems to have turned into a death-trap bounded by red tape.  He has exhausted ALL avenues: Medicaid, Medicare, his politicians, and charitable foundations of many types.  It hasn’t been enough.  BY FAR.

I have known him for 35 years — since before I became a coach.  Those of you who were part of the first ADD Peer Coaching TeleClass met him in your classes.

I want to keep this short, so I am not going to go into all the details. Let me tell you simply this: I promise you he is being 100% truthful on his video — and that it is hopeful, not morbid.

What he’s NOT sharing is that this first goal is just a first step.

As soon as he has reached this goal, he must find a way to fund travel expenses, hospital and doctor fees abroad for another risky brain-tumor procedure that could save his life.  AGAIN.

This procedure is so cutting edge, with protocols so experimental that very few doctors here in the United States are even aware that they exist.  But they will, if Andy’s quest continues to be as successful as it has been.

One of a special study for several years now, he has beaten ALL the [former] odds so far – but his resources are finally tapped out. Even basic monthly expenses exceed what he is able to raise by quite a lot.  Replacing an entire mouthful of teeth lost to radiation and chemo will make it possible for him to WORK again.

This is a proud, resourceful, self-reliant man who is – finally – reaching out to those of us who care.

Please JOIN ME in
BEING one of the ones who care.

There are 73 days left in this campaign — but the faster we reach THIS goal, the sooner he can move on to earning money toward the next.

I want to KNOW that I can count on your help – whatever you are able to do once you have listened to the video – no matter how large or small.

Every single one of you can share and forward. Please DO that – for me – in appreciation for what I continue to do for all of you.

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart

UPDATE Monday, October 6th: Andy raised his first-stage money and will be spending most of the day in the chair at the Dental School that has agreed to do the work at considerably discounted rates.

While more money will still be needed, it has begun.  I have overwhelming gratitude for all who helped – and you still can, btw.  Every single dollar matters.

It will be a time-intensive, mult-stepped process — he will post pictures on the site as things progress and he has time – ending with a beaming smile, if all goes well and he raises the rest of the money will need.

UPDATE: Andy’s new smile – thanks to ALL who helped by forwarding, sharing and/or contributing.  There but for the grace of GOD go any of us – and look what MIRACLES a little help from our friends can accomplish!  FINALLY, he can expect to be able to get a job to begin to recover financially!

One Response to A little help from our friends can make a MIRACLE happen

  1. I am SO eager for you all to find this post. And I am SO grateful for the donations on Andy’s page – whether they came from any of you or anywhere else. Even a single dollar – times 10 thousand – and he’s reached his first goal. PLEASE SHARE – as I continue to share with all of you.


And what do YOU think? I'm interested.
