a node at the edge  

October 17, 2002

Chris' friend Rick is hurt quite badly from the Bali explosion. He has burns over 45% of his body, and has received injuries to his head, lungs, and other organs.

Rick could be in intensive care in Australia for a couple of months before being allowed home to Canada. Once he returns home, he'll need to have additional treatment, considerable treatment. An added difficulty is that Rick is far away from his family and friends, who have to fly back and forth to be with him, most likely having to stay in hotels when they visit him.

I can't stop Bush wanting to wage war, and I can't stop terrorists from wanting to blow up innocent people, and I can't stop people wanting to kill each other, but there is one thing I can do:

    From Rick's sister, Roanna:

    The family has arranged to open a special trust account for those who might wish to make donations to help in offsetting some of Rick's medical expenses while in Australia and upon his return to Canada.

    The Trust Account has been opened through the law office of Brian L. Morris in Whitehorse, Yukon.

    Donations may be made by sending a cheque or money order to:

    'Brian L. Morris, in trust for Rick Gleason'
    c/o: 202-100 Main Street Whitehorse, YT, Y1A 2A8

    or by sending it to:

    'Brian L. Morris, in trust for Rick Gleason'
    c/o Bank of Montreal
    111 Main Street
    P.O. Box 4400
    Whitehorse, YT Y1A 3T5
    Transit #0998"

paypal needs to be an option here. Someone with a tech bent needs to lend a hand there because I would happily donate to this via paypal (since i already have cash in that account)..

That's a great idea, ruzz, but I have no idea how to set something like that up. Can anyone help with this? The medical bills are really going to be terrible, I think.

I was saddened today to hear that Rick had passed away. My thoughts go out not only Rick's family but to everyone who was affected by this tragedy. God Bless.
