Mark Karan Fund Reaches Its Goal
On Monday we reported that Grateful Dead Hour Host David Gans had established a fund for fans to aid RatDog guitarist Mark Karan, who is currently undergoing treatment for throat cancer. Gans aim was to raise $5000 to send Mark and his wife to the Commonweals Cancer Help Program, a week-long retreat in Bolinas, CA. Three days into the campaign this goal was met. Gans offers his thanks, adding, What an amazing community we have! The response was overwhelming! As a result, individuals should refrain from making any additional contributions (although there may be opportunities to assist Karan and his wife Maile down the road).
