As many of you already know, our dear friend, Jim Erickson, has been diagnosed with a very aggressive and life-threatening cancer called Acute Myeloid Leukemia (or AML).

Artist Jim Erickson
This terrible disease took Jim by surprise, as just a few months ago he was busy creating beautiful stained glass art and living a healthy and happy life with his wife, Margo.  Today he is in a serious and long-term fight for his life.  He is currently hospitalized while undergoing chemotherapy in Hawaii and then he and Margo will need to move to the mainland for at least 6 months for Jim to have a complete bone marrow transplant.

This disease has created a huge financial hardship for Jim as he will be unable to work for at least a year. Medical expenses are already piling up and we all want to be sure that he is able to receive the very best treatments that will give him the greatest chance of survival and healing.

                                How Can You Help?

Handsome as ever and still smiling!
First of all, Margo has specifically asked that we all please keep Jim in our thoughts and prayers. Pray for wisdom for the doctors, comfort and pain control for Jim and pray that this cancer will be completely eliminated and Jim will be cured!

There will be various fundraisers scheduled on the island of Oahu over the next few months.  This will include an event on September 1st at the polo field, a bake sale and a silent auction and dinner scheduled for later in the year.
