Blog of Helios writer facing cancer deadline

I first read the “Blog of Helios” on a link from Linux Today. Today Ken Starks is quite literally facing a deadline, and he needs help. Many have gone begging on the internet and gotten large sums of money, for much more trivial reasons. I’ve seen this story on Slashdot under “submitted stories” twice now this weekend. Maybe begging for your life just isn’t the thing to do, but if it isn’t let’s make it a public debate. Bring it to the floor, so to speak. ~ Dale Pontius

My name is Diane and Ken is my Life-Partner. I will probably be posting for him from time to time due to his eyes not being able to tolerate the backlight of the monitor. He is down to about 20 minutes a day here because the backlight makes him terribly sick and the dark glasses are helping less and less.

As many of you know, Ken’s cancer has just recently begun to spread to his right lymph node but his Oncologist has assured us that this is 80 percent curative if he gets the needed surgery in time.
