Let me start by saying this isn’t going to be a funny post.
We all know about the tragedy that struck late last week in Aurora, Colorado. We’ve heard terrible stories of innocent lives lost, and miraculous stories of survivors. I’m hopeful you’ve heard about Caleb Medley – a budding stand-up comedian from Denver, who was in that theater with his wife – pregnant at 40 weeks.
Today, they are both in the hospital – Caleb with critical injuries including loss of an eye and brain damage, and his wife as she is induced to deliver their new baby, Hugo. Caleb was shot in the face on that fateful night. And, as a new dad with out health insurance – most comics don’t carry insurance (perk of the job!) – I’m asking you to help. Guesses land Caleb’s medical expenses at over $1,000,000. Partner that with a new baby, and, well, you see where I’m going.
To date, almost $78,000 has been donated by people from around the world to help Caleb, his wife, and new baby, Hugo. Consider helping? You can donate directly here:
