Here is the actual info on helping Blitzo.

To send a card or something else:

Blitzo
c/o Russ Walling
HC1 Box 696
Joshua Tree, Ca. 92252

To send a check, make it out to Russ Walling as his bank account is still not quite set up, send it to the address above, and I'll cash it and hand him the money since he lives here at our house.

PayPal is still probably best:
RevBlitzo@hotmail.com is his personal address to send it to. Or, if that one makes you nervous, you can send it to me at "paypal@FishProducts.com" and I'll transfer it to Blitzo.

Today required a blood transfusion along with radiation treatment #9. Helper Paul has had two HUGE days of running Blitzo to Colton for treatment along with Doctor's visits. We couldn't be caring for Blitzo without the help of Paul. I say that with all seriousness, we would be unable to get him to daily treatments 3 hours away. It's amazingly time consuming with the getting ready, loading up, unloading, reloading..............

Thankfully we've got a great helper! Paul is wonderful with the Bloot, always on time and goes above and beyond what he's paid for - we are very fortunate to have him as a helper and now a friend.

Treatment update includes the next stage which we are happy to report has Chemotherapy in the mix. We are very hopeful that chemo coupled with the radiation get's Blitzo back on track to manageable health. Chemo will last through July with sessions every few days... mixed in with some labs and MRI someplace too. August... TBD

As a result Paul is willing to hang out for another month to assist us. Donations continue to come in and we thank you very much, as these donations DIRECTLY go to the care of Blitzo primarily in the form of paying Paul a pittance wage and associated transportation. Food, shelter, booze and entertainment is covered elsewhere but having the funds for Paul is key to our success (and my sanity)

Paul bivied at our house last night as they were up at 4:30am to prepare bandages, breakfast and then head out to the hospital. All day event with blood transfusion, here they are now at hour 10 of their day..............

Dude!! I didn't know you had Shaun White helping you out :-), Awesome.
You got some good people around you Blitzo.

Edit: Maybe it's just me, but I though Paul looked a bit like Shaun W.

Not knowing Paul or Shaun White (or Blitzo for that matter), based on this thread I would say that Paul is easily twice the man that Shaun White is...

Check out them guns on the Blooter. Seriously though, does look like you're gaining some muscle mass back in your arms. Pretty soon you'll be doing squats with a full keg, and deadlifting 200lb bales of weed.

It's not really about Karma. This entire thread is about helping a loved one who's quite ill. We are holding onto life as much as possible and the care, love, donations, thoughts, cards, gifts and prayers from all of Blitzo's friends. The community IS making a difference and without such support I suspect the posts would be much more somber.

Blitzo is respected by many for his art, he has been blessed in many ways throughout his life and we're happy to be a part of it.

Oh, you need the full scoop...

He contracted Multiple Myeloma : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiple_myeloma
a while back. Did a round of treatment and then had a good run at it for a few month, then like they do, it came back or got angry.

Fast forward to now: Pretty crippled up and getting radiation treatments about 1.5 hours from home every day. Next is more chemo. Money is tight and this stuff costs even from a logistics standpoint.

Paypal direct to him is good at the RevBlitzo@hotmail.com email address.

To send a check or a card or something, use my address posted above. His real name is Bill.
