I’ll tell you right now, this post is a bummer, so let’s all band together and help these guys out. I was contacted by Steven from Megabolt Clothing about a benefit shirt they are doing for his close friend’s father, Mr. Jeff Coan. Here is a brief blurb about Jeff:
“On March 10, 2009 Jeff was diagnosed with a Grade 4 Astrocytoma brain tumor. This is a very fast growing aggressive form of cancer. Fortunately it was located in a place that was operable. Jeff is currently undergoing extensive treatments and therapies at UW Hospital in Madison. The Doctors are optimistic toward his prognosis. But he needs your prayers and support as well. He and his family are determined to beat this enemy.”
To help with the expenses Jeff and his family have incurred, Steven has made a great Megabolt cancer benefit shirt. They are printed on American Apparel tees, and are only $13 (approximately $6 of that will benefit the Coan family, as he got an amazing deal on the printing). I really don’t know anywhere else you can even get a t-shirt printed on American Apparel for only $13. Anyway, it’d be cool if any of you could help these guys out. If you can, head over to his Etsy Shop.
EDIT: Here’s an update/thanks from Megabolt’s Steven:
Dear OMG Posters! readers,
From the bottom of my heart I want to say thank you! The response from this blog alone is amazing. I cannot wait to give the Coan Family the money that we raised together. As I told Mitch from OMG Posters! I can’t say thank you enough. Please keep Jeff and the Coan family in your thoughts and prayers. Thanks again.
