I’ve typed and retyped this but haven’t found an easy way to say it, nor did I ever think i would have to- my best friend of over 7 years is dying of cancer.Steven was diagnosed on April 13th and had emergency surgery to remove the cancerous tumor while I was on a work trip in California. He’s since learned that, at the young age of 24, this aggressive cancer has spread to his lymph nodes and possibly other parts of his body including his lungs. He has a second major surgery planned for May 24th, where they will remove his lymph nodes.Let me explain why I’m writing you all- unlike myself he doesn’t come from an large, generous family with the resources to help if one of us is in need. Because of this I am his emergency contact and have been for years and I feel it’s my responsibility to help him figure out a way to pay for his treatments during this scary and stressful time.His insurance has said they will not pay for his $20,000 vital surgery on May 24th, a mere 16 days away. And because of his lack of funds, no collateral and past medical history, the hospital is requiring him to pay $10,000 before the surgery and $10,000 post-surgery. His doctors have also informed him that he will have intensive chemotherapy over the next few months which will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, on top of regular doctor visits and expensive medicine.He’s contacted many cancer organizations for help, reached out to countless charities, and has not found a way to raise the money quickly enough, so we’ve started a fundraiser online hoping to be able to pay for this next surgery before it’s too late.Steven has been a major part of my life for over 7 years- we’ve worked together at three jobs (we’re both currently at The 88), traveled the country together, and have shared more memories than I could possibly recount. He has been there for me no matter the situation- happy, sad, or difficult, always with a positive outlook and words of wisdom wise beyond his years. He is simply one of the most generous, humorous, and interesting people I’ve ever met and someone I can’t imagine being removed from my life.Please make this easier for him and myself, donate what you can and share this with your friends, your coworkers, your family, anyone who will donate a few dollars. Anything is appreciated. http://www.giveforward.com//fundraiser/j7c2/fuckcancer

Will and Mateo invite their friends over to celebrate Will’s 30th birthday. Their friends’ (a mix of male, female, gay and straight) conversations soon cover a gambit of topics—politics, gay rights, pot laws, long distance marriages, aging and ethnic discrimination. As the party progresses, the alcohol flows, and the piñata isn’t the only thing that gets punched! And when things begin to get out of hand, a surprise guest arrives, not at all approving of the proceedings. It is also revealed that both Will and Mateo may have some secrets that threaten their relationship.
