Curtis Butterfield, 2010

Donation blog is up!

Hi everyone -

My name is Rob - I've known Curtis Butterfield for around 17 years.  I played guitar with him (he sang) for 'Uphold' from 1995 to 2005, a band out of the Quad Cities.  During this time, I've come to know him like a brother - we spent a LOT of time together during our days in Uphold, and still to this day enjoy playing games online as a form of social gathering.  So, there is a special bond of 'geekiness' that we share, which I have exemplified here via this post.

Certainly I'm not his only friend (he has many), but I'm a huge fan of him and have tons of respect for who he is and what he does.

Recently, Curtis has been hospitalized due to a serious head injury and up until quite recently (he was hospitalized on November 8th, 2010) was not able to speak.

If you are a close friend and have not been receiving updates on Curtis' status, send a message to his wife on Facebook (Sarah).

I realize that this site isn't going to be used as a blog in a conventional sense, but it seemed like a really good way to accomplish what I wanted with little coding or administration as possible, making it easy for the family to use and manipulate if necessary.

The mission of this site is to provide a means for you to give to Curtis' family to help offset the huge medical expenses that are coming their way.

If you aren't familiar with why this site is here, I suggest you check out the 'about' page above.

Thanks to all.

Rob Dunn (personal friend to the Butterfield family)
