After we create a new project for a person or a group, they can also receive tax-deductible donations. My dream for Healing the Roots is that it will really become a resource for people that commit most of their time, their lives really, to healing the planet and the environment here. Not only provide financial relief and financial aid for people dxd with a terminal illness or serious injury - that will be it’s first priority - but to also provide other resources, such as hospice services, other social avenues of support: psychological support, spiritual support for those people.

The word that I use in describing it is “Bodhisattvas” of the world - for lack of a better word

Those people who have really committed themselves to service and don’t really have that much money to spare. Hopefully, healing the roots will be that type of organization.

I’m really excited about it.

Thanks to everyone who is helping pull this together. I’m looking for people interested in working on Healing the Roots. I’ve started it but I definitely need some help making it larger. Please contact me if you’re interested in helping out.

That’s it. There’s more to come soon.

I look forward to seeing all of you people down there in Los Angeles really soon, and stay tuned.

Please make checks payable to "IHC / HTRF" And make a note on your check that this is for the "healjer project" or just "healjer" to insure that the money goes towards my fund.

For some reason I left a message this morning and it didn't pick up....

Here is what I remember after a very full day:

"Yay Jer!

Good for you and I am very proud of you!

I am amazed by your courage, and how you are choosing the situation, rather than letting the situation shoose you.

Let me know when you are planning on being in LA.

Thanks Josh, I actually do see your other post but since you weren't logged in it was screened. When I get them I can unscreen them. In this case I got this one first so I'll just remove that one.

I definitely wouldn't want the situation to "shoose" me ;)

We'll be in LA on the 8th-11th. The PCRI conference is all day on the 9th and I have my fourth consultation on the 11th. Give me a call if you are planning on coming up!

Lots of Love,

Hi Jeremy,

I've been checking out the blog regularly since Ruckus announced your situation. You've got a lot of courage not only to fight the cancer so aggressively and with such a positive attitude, but also to put all that you're going through on this blog. It's heartbreaking that you have to deal with this at such a young age. Every day I wish you the best, both in selecting among the wide array of treatment options and in the eventual success of the route you choose. You were on all our minds at the IN Ruckus 'Freedom From Oil Action Camp' in July. If down the road you need a nurse to help you out in any way, let me know and I'll be there. You've always been one of my most favorite Ruckus/GP friends.

Congrats on setting up HTRF. The check's in the mail. I've been considering getting an RV for mobile first aid at events. I'm getting too old to deal with wind blown tents and leaky horse barns. I'm thinking about posting to Craig's list for a free or cheap one and it would certainly help if I could make it tax deductible. I've asked Ruckus about the possibility but haven't heard back from them yet. Do you think this would fall within the mission of HTRF?

Love and peace,

Hey Butch!

Its great to hear from you. I think that a mobile RV for first aid would be a great project for HTRF. I will check to see if there is any problem with this but I seriously doubt it. Ideally we would make this a new project of HTRF and you would be the coordinator of the project. Let me know if that suits you.

Thanks so much for your encouragement. It means a lot to me.

Much Love,
