Sundance Magazine Has Finally Arrived – ** Update Coming This Week **

Hey, the Magazine finally arrived and fresh off the presses. It turned out really nice and while I was down at the hospital, I stopped by the Foundation and they had just arrived.

The question of the Summer was who was going to be on the front cover? Would it be Sundance or Frankie V?

And the winner is………neither one of us, LOL:)

The graphics department has someone else in charge now and they have moved in a different direction now. Since the magazine is about Health and Technology stories, the designer put a computer motherboard and a computer chip on the cover instead. But hey, at least I didn’t lose, LOL:)

The article about me and Dr. D. is titled, “daVinci Robot to the Rescue.” We're on pages 7-8-9 of the magazine.

A picture of the president of the foundation is just inside the cover – her name is Sally and it’s with her generosity, that this was made possible through the foundation’s contributors and her willingness to help me out and donate the copies for distribution. A very sweet lady and it was such a privilege to work with her. There are some other really good stories in there, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading all of the articles.

I wanted to personally thank the members of our community who donated money for shipping and handling so that the folks who had requested a copy to get one. This was very generous of you guys to do to make sure that we could get this done.

I also want to thank our friend, Don (coolvdub). His generosity in taking collections was most gracious and I’ve been very proud to work with him on my project. He took a lot of weight off my shoulders during my surgery and ran with this one all the way – so thank you, Don, for all that you did to help all of us.

Additionally, Don has offered to help me with the shipping labels, so all I will have to do is peel and stick. He has purchases a labeler and is currently working on that at this time. Kudos, Don!

Originally, when I opened the post there were approximately 34 people who were interested in receiving a copy of the magazine. I realize it was a couple of months ago now, and times has gone on, but here is the list of folks who were on the post and we will need mailing addresses, so we can get these sent out to you:)

I’m going to ask that you PM Don with your address, so he can do his thing with his fancy labeler. He will mail those to me and I’ll mail the mags out from my place. We hope to do this as fast as possible.

I realize that we are all on and off this forum at different times in our lives, so don’t know how many of the folks on the list will see their names with this post. We’ll see what happens and we may have to PM individuals to see if they are still interested and go from there.

So, if you wanted a copy, you will get one. If there are any remaining copies left, we can see who might would like to receive them as well. We sort of had to pre-order during that first post, so the Foundation might have a few copies available, or they might not. If they do and someone wants one, I will try my best to accommodate that.

The article and pictures were very nice and they did a first rate job – I’m proud of the way I was represented and it was an incredible honor to be able to help the hospital. The DaVinci surgery netted Dr. D. and St. Paul Hospital with a brand new, state of the art, $1.5 million dollar robot – one of the proudest accomplishments I may ever have in my life and I could not be more thrilled for all the parties involved.

Love to you guys and Big Hugs to all of you!

*** UPDATE 10-01-2010 ***

I've got the first two batches of magazines mailed out and they are on the way to you! There are plenty of copies still available if you would still like one. I can probably fill somewhere between 30-40 more.

Thanks to the generous donations made by some of our community members, for the benefit of the entire community, we are still good on the cost of shipping, so that's good news. I've got envelopes, magazines, and s&h to cover you if you are interested.

Don (coolvdub) has been helping me print out labels to make the process quicker and it does really help get 'em out. Just PM him your address and he will send those to me and I'll mail them out from here. Everyone gets a "signed" copy, LOL:)

And you can always hang the article on your wall and throw darts at it - use it as a drink coaster - or line your kitty litter pan with it, LOL:) It has a million and one uses:)

I got them for all of us and the Foundation was so generous to donate these to me at no charge. As I was going through my address lists, it dawned on me how many folks were on my list, that are no longer with us. How I wish they could have had a copy, just heartbreaking!

So, if there are any more of you fine folks that were on the fence or missed this thread, and wanted one, now is the perfect opportunity to tell me. Would love for you to have a copy if you wanted one - that was the whole idea of the project.

Thank you!
-Craig

Postage could be expensive, can you scan the article and email it to me? Do you have a scanner?

Hey Raquel

We'll be OK - some of our members donated the money for S&H, so you'll get a real copy.
Just PM your address to "coolvdub" (DON) and he'll print out the label and send it to me - he's helping me out.

The donations for postage were "very generous" and it's our loving community that is making this all possible.

Oh, what we can't do when we set our minds to something, huh?

Don't worry about a thing! Just enjoy it!

Hi All,

I have received several PM's already, if you want a copy just PM me your name and mailing address. I will send the labels off in batches as I get them, so the please be patient and we will get this done.

Since I'm working I will do this in the evenings after work, but rest assured I will work hard to get these sent to Craig ASAP. If you were one of the generous folks who donated, I have your info already and have sent it off to Craig.

I personally think a cover of you would be way sexier than a computer motherboard! Anyway, I'm glad you're pleased with the way things turned out and can't wait to read it.

I was just wondering about these mags the other day! I was telling my Mother all about how you went through the new robotic surgery, and i was wondering if they have anything like that here in San Diego. That's one surgery i might consider. I can't WAIT to read the article!

It looks like your dream of helping to beat this monster is really coming true, Craig. I know this technology will save many, many lives.

Hugs!

I'd love one if you have extras. I have no idea why I didn't climb on board when it was first mentioned. :)

oh yeah.... are they autographed? Someday, when you're old and famous, I could sell it off and live happily ever after. :)

Don't worry about it until you're feeling up to it. I know chemo is a beast itself for you.

Send your addresses to Don(coolvdbub) so he can print them them out and mail with the other's he's got going out as well.

Really great responses to this project. I know we've still got at least 20 or so mags, I'll need to check, so go ahead and order. This is on top of the list we've already got.

Thanks again, Don, for your continued effort - I will touch base with you soon and give you an update.

Hey Craig!

THANK YOU so much for the magazine. I think the pictures of you and you and your wife were great!!! Have to say the article wasn't long enough......but I know it was about the machine, not all about you :, I just think you have so much to offer, a book might be a better option LOL!!!! But I enjoyed it, and think it's great that you were featured!!

Cheers!

I want to let you know that I received the best selling magazine you sent today. Thanks so much! I read the article quickly + will read it again. I love the pic of you + Kim. I think you on the cover would have been much better than that high tech stuff. You got more space than Frankie! Good job! Thanks again.
