The inaugural fundraiser to help the MPN Research Foundation.

It's not just a knife

As one of my last projects, I want to help as many other patients as possible. I have come to realize that one of the most effective ways to do this is to enable the MPN Foundation to do their work. By organizing this raffle, by raising funds, and forwarding them to the MPN Foundation, I hope to be giving some patients a chance at a life.

This iteration of a project, whether completed or not, makes me wish for a couple things: one the donation to the MPN Research Foundation. Two, I get to work my ass off looking forward to a goal; finally, I honestly hope that this project becomes some part of my legacy, that somebody continues growing it, nursing it to health, and making it good in ways that that I cannot imagine.

It's the only thing I have for my exit plan.

I don't want it grown for me. No, not for me. For Tina. For George. Two friends who have not made it. For all the others who have suffered, and are still suffering.

For all those who won't make it as long as they should.

For all those who suffer with the pain from this cancer.

With that in mind, here's a sneak peek at some customization of a Gayle Bradley Folder 2. Keep in mind the colors for myelofibrosis are red and orange. The knives will be in my grubby paws next week (that familiar Snap you will hear is me putting on the rubber gloves, get your mind out of the gutter) for extensive photo opps.
