As all of you know, Mac has been in and out of the hospital for a long time. That is not going to change any time soon, although, for the moment, his health is stable.
If you’ve spent any time at all in a hospital — especially one in Philadelphia that has no Wifi, which is where Mac has been — you know that it kind of sucks. Not to mention cancer treatments, pneumonia, and all of the rest. Alex R. has stayed in pretty close touch with Mac by phone, and Mac has said that he really wants an iPad. (The large screen really helps when you’re woozy on meds.) When Alex told him that we wanted to try to raise the money through Bravesjournal, Alex said, “That was the happiest I’ve heard him.”
Alex R. set up this Paypal account for the gift. It’s different from the one on the sidebar to the right — we’re taking care of everything for Mac. I’ll keep posting a link to the Donate button until we’re able to afford an iPad with 3G — we’d like to buy one new, but Apple sells cheaper ones refurbished if need be.
So if enough of us donate $5, $10, or $20, we’ll be able to get him one. Please help. This will make his life easier in a difficult time. Especially with Andrelton Simmons out for a month.
