Our friend @katieannecamp can't afford treatment for Stage 4 cancer. Can you help with $2? http://tinyurl.com/KatieCancer
Freelance Whales Nov 19, 2015
Hi there fans! We miss you! How have you been? How are the kids? How's the weather in (insert city here)? Things are going well on our end, thanks for asking. We've been hard art work putting together some new songs for you all, and we'll be keeping you updated on that front as 2015 turns into 2016. Suffice it to say, we're excited for what's to come. We also wanted to take an opportunity to make an ask of the collective you. Our very close friend and t-shirt/merchandise designer, Katie Campbell, was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of breast cancer just over two years ago at age 30. As you might imagine, two years of experimental treatments for aggressive cancer gets pretty expensive. To the tune of $70,000 per year expensive. Thus far, Katie and her husband, Andrew -- who we've also collaborated with on tour posters -- have been able to afford the expenses only with the support of generous family and friends through a GoFundMe fundraiser. (https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/chnb/katie-s-crush-cancer-fund) After a year of promising experimental treatments, we learned this week that Katie's cancer has spread. Katie's medical team has informed her that more aggressive treatments will cost her upwards of $120,000 in 2016. That might seem like an insurmountable number, but that's where you come in. We're going to be auctioning off some stuff on eBay. Now, we know that our stuff doesn't necessarily have a lot of value to some people. But this isn't as much about the items themselves as the intention of helping our friends in their time of need, right? Some of it will be small, some of it will be big, and ALL OF THE MONEY WILL GO TO KATIE AND ANDREW. If you spend $30 on a signed CD, $30 will go directly to their account to cover medical expenses. If you spend $500 on a signed CD...well, that's just amazing. And the whole $500 will go to cover Katie's treatment. We're gonna start this thing off right, with an auction for a hand-painted, show-used kick drum head that was on stage with us from November 2010 - April 2011, for almost 50 shows. It traveled in our van with us, drank some beer with us...even slept in bed with Jake a few times. The bidding for this precious piece of Freelance Whales history starts at $100. The winner of the auction will get the drum head with a note from the band, signed by all members. Check out the auction at http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/262150312988?, and happy bidding! Thanks for your generosity, Freelance Whales PS - You can read more about Katie's journey at katiecrushescancer.com

Another earthquake has struck Nepal. Thank you for all the support last time around. If you are able, please click on this link to donate to ActionAid, a non-profit organization that has been active in Nepal for 30 years. Holly Miller, an ActionAid Communications Specialist who was in Kathmandu when the second earthquake struck this morning shared her reaction: “We were in the middle of Kathmandu having a coffee and planning our work schedule when the earthquake struck. The Nepali members of the team told us to get out of the building. Everyone was trying to work out which way to run. “All around us people were crying out to make sure people were safe. I was shaking uncontrollably. The most important job is now to contact our colleagues across Nepal to establish what the situation is so we can respond effectively to this latest earthquake.” ActionAid is responding - providing food, shelter, medicine and hygiene items, and creating safe spaces for women and children. But they need more financial support to reach all those affected. Every penny counts.

Early this morning, a massive earthquake struck the city of Kathmandu, the capitol of Nepal. Entire sections of the city have collapsed, over 1,000 people are dead, and many thousands more are injured and missing. People are in grave need of food, water, shelter, and other basic necessities.
