Please help Rod Pitts

This is a repost for friends of my good buddy Rod Pitts:

Hi Everyone,

As many of you may know, Rod Pitts, dedicated filmmaker, editor and director of photography (What Goes Around, Just the Two of Us, Tricks, 100 Lives, The Right Questions) has been in the hospital for a little over a week with high blood pressure, blurred vision and motor problems. We just got word that he had a mild stroke. While this is scary to know, we do feel relieved that the problem has been identified and his rehabilitation has started immediately.

However, due to his sudden health scare, he has been unable to work and but still has pressing financial obligations (mainly his rent and medicine).

We ask that you spare whatever you can. As fellow artists, we can imagine how disheartening we may feel to lose the very things we need to do what we need to do what we love to do and are passionate about. Please spread the word so that when Rod gets out of the hospital, the very last thing he has to worry about is where to live or buying medication to support his health. We are asking everyone if you can make a donation to please click on the "very long" link below. If it's not already highlighted, just copy and paste it in your browser:¤cy_code=USD&bn=PP%2dDonationsBF%3abtn_donateCC_LG%2egif%3aNonHosted
