Just Make Believe For a Moment That The Gadfly is Don Corleone . . .

The Gadfly would like to take a moment here on the pages of his shitty little blog to talk about something much more important and dear to The Gadfly's heart other than seeing Donald Trump and his borg followers get their comeuppance.

The Gadfly will make this quick and to the point.

2+ years ago The Gadfly's mum was diagnosed with a lung tumor.  It was cancerous.  Since that unfortunate discovery, The Gadfly's mum has mustered ever fiber of her human being to battle this invasive thing in her body and has subjected herself to onslaughts of radiation and chemotherapy and battled her way through unimaginable pain.  If you are an American and you know someone, maybe even yourself, who has had a cancer episode, you know how frightening it is, and not just from the prospect of facing your own mortality -- but also for having to deal with the inevitable blizzard of doctor, specialist and hospital bills which you know are coming and that basically dwarf your entire net $ value as a member of our society.

That's where The Gadfly's mom is today -- she's still battling her awful disease, but she is also now staring financial Armageddon in the face from medical bills.

The Gadfly's family has started a GoFundMe account for mom.  Gadfly will post the link here and if any of you feel so inclined to kindly extend a helping hand, an open heart and a few greenbacks, The Gadfly would be most humbly appreciative.

That's all, and thank you all in advance for your support.

P.S. --- For those of you who have already donated, our family cannot express in mere words on a shitty little blog like this just how much your kindness and generosity is appreciated.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.
