Thank-you.  I made it rain.   Well, maybe more of a sprinkle....a drizzle?  A drop?  Either way, I made Max wet.  Wait, that's not right either.

the situation is very fluid right now.

Hey - just wanted to let everyone know that my wife, Lauren, her cancer is back. I had posted about it before, years ago. She had breast cancer about 8 years ago and it came back a few years later. Sh

I want to thank everyone again for the prayers and donations.  We shut the donation part down, the response there was so overwhelming. Seriously don't have the words to describe the appreciation we fe

Thanks again everyone. You have all been great, and the fighting on the board has been minimal, so that is an added bonus. Lauren had her last triple treatment on Thursday. Chemo, and two hormone

This is getting exceedingly strange.  And I've got more questions.

You managed to start a thread on JN that didn't erupt into one of the dozen pre-approved petulant arguments.  That on its own should tell you, there actually are no answers out there.  Nothing we know is real.

Hey everyone - I hope you'll indulge me one last emotional post.

In my work, I think a lot about endings and goodbyes.  They're never easy, especially when something meaningful has happened.  I've gotten pretty good at my job over the years, but I still haven't figured out the perfect goodbye.  All I have is the good-enough goodbye.

That's what I'll endeavor to do here.

Joe Klecko will be the last goal I set.  I hope we crush it, and then some.  But wherever we end up, our mission is already accomplished.  The dollars are just a bonus now.  We've raised over $7,200 which is incredible - Phil can feed his family, stress free for months, because of this - and as I said at the onset, can just focus on healing.  But what's even more incredible, in my view, may be that we raised it from 165 people.

What happened here is that 165 members of Jet Nation Dot Com said, "@Maxman, we're in this together... We've got you."  And we did so loudly.

Me - I worried initially.  I lost a fair amount of sleep Friday night after posting the link.  What if I screwed up?  What if this was a bust?  Did I set Phil up for disappointment at this already tough time?  Thank you all for making my worries completely unfounded.

People have thanked me throughout, and I'm grateful for your kind words, and your trust - but this wasn't about me.  I asked Phil for permission, I made a link, I posted it, and I cheer-led a bit.  This was about all of us coming together and doing something great.  I thank you all for that.

I spoke to Max, and he agreed, it's time to get back to football.

Let's Go Jets!  Let's Go Lauren!

This was awesome bro and yeah we can talk Football but I hope this stays open throughout all of 2021's season until we find out 100% she whoops ass again and beats it (which she will because she's already a proven fighter). I'd like to keep this thing going throughout the entire season this way I can donate every Friday throughout the entire season because I witnessed my mom having to overcome breast cancer and while I was @ work for almost a year I felt emotionally distressed and if I would've received say 50k of support I wouldn't of had to work a nervous wreck and could've took an entire year off of work his to focus on my mom instead of working M-F 50 hours per week. It was a nightmare to me so it's just my opinion but I'd like to keep this support going throughout our entire season of 2021 football while she kicks this things ass!

To be fair you cheered a lot and so did I. I’m so happy I had a chance to be part of this. If we ever meet at a game I’m kissing you on the lips. I know your like 8 inches taller than me so I’ll wait till you sit down. An amazing thing you did here, for an amazing family and I’m sure this love and positive momentum will carry them through this. Was a beautiful thing everyone did here together the last couple days. Ok fine, I’ll kiss you all on the Lips. 

I feel like you have to kiss him on whatever part of his body your lips are parallel to.  Probably right below the neck line lol

Okay, "all on the lips" and "8 inches" snapped me back to JN reality.  

Kudos @TeddEY and everybody for accomplishing something wonderful as well as making this thread a must read multiple times a day.
