My good friend, Drew Brinley, is starting his second round of chemotherapy this week. I've joined his buddy, Eric Bills, in trying to raise enough money to buy him a nice laptop for him to use while he is in bed at the hospital or at home.

Eric started a facebook group called "Friends of Drew Brinley"
He also stared a blog:

I know some of you might know Drew (and even if you don't), you may want to donate. Every little bit will help.

Thanks for posting this, Katy! Darrin & I both know Drew but didn't know he was battling cancer. "Cancer sucks", reads a pin they gave my Mom when she started chemo, and it's such a true statement. We will have to donate to the fund for sure! Thanks!

Tod and I are both shocked and saddened to hear the news. We really loved having Drew at our house. Thanks for letting us know how to help.
