Paul Haines, a much-loved member of the Aussie specfic commuity is going through a tough time. After being diagnosed with bowel cancer, having sections of his bowel removed and enduring six months worth of chemotherapy, he has recently discovered he has spots on his liver. Paul has met this news by reloading his guns and is going to fight it with two other forms of chemotherapy for cancers like his, combined with a monoclonal antibody called Avastin. Avastin, however is not part of Medicare or the private health system's funding at this stage. It costs $20,000 to do it. Money that he doesn't have.

So we're going to try and help him raise it.

Here's the donate button, contact me or catsparx for his bank details or hang around for the tricks to begin.








This will remain at the top of my posts until we get to the target.

I'd like to point out I have a cunt and I don't think it's cancerous thank you.

It's an in-joke for Paul and I think just this once, I'm gonna let the joke slide.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "let the joke slide"

Sorry!

and that Paul Haines *is* offensive ... and that's kinda the point of the subject heading ... part of the in-joke.

Oh, WOW! What a response. I donated some this morning. I don't know Paul, but I figure he'd be a more worthy recipient than some bureaucratic charity ;-)

Go Paul!

Yeah, I'm blown away too. I think though, the second 10k is gonna be hardest!

We're certainly starting to get somewhere serious, I'd say!

Impressive result! But like you say, the second 10K will probably be harder. Looking forward to see what tricks you've got in mind. Let me know if I can help.

Will absolutely let you know.

I think it's already becoming blatantly clear how much Paul is loved.

Well, I've run on every list I have
I have access to some exclusive author lists and I have asked for special permission for the donation link, been granted and have posted. Going by some of the spikes, it looks like some have joined the cause. 8k to go. I hope other have special lists they can use. I am afraid I have used all I have now.
