Ok, on a serious note, a long-time Colorado patroller and river guide was diagnosed with acute leukemia week before last. (AML-M4, for those of you who know about such things). He is currently undergoing chemo at the hospital in Durango, and will need a bone marrow transplant as soon as they can find a match. Although the family has health insurance, obviously there are many supplemental costs involved with something like this.
If you are able, please consider kicking in a few bucks to help someone who has devoted his life to helping the rest of us enjoy our passions, on the mountain and the river both. A fund has been set up at http://www.giveforward.com/kickcancerclauson ; you can find some more biographical info and photos there, as well.
