Dear Friends,

I am so grateful to report that I am officially in REMISSION.

I still need about a year of recovery to be truly back to my old self, but I am feeling stronger every day.

I have many people to thank for extending my life:

Dr. Julie Jaffe, oncologist, and her wonderful team                                         - especially Nurse Kendra!
Dr. Charlotte Kim, radiologist, and her dedicated staff
Dr. Brian Waddle, surgeon at  Surgical Associates of Monterey Bay
Dr. Linda Miller, gastroenterology
The INCREDIBLE staff at the Katz Cancer Resource Center and The Mary & Richard Solari Cancer Center and especially Nurse Navigator Michelle Finch

And I have many people to thank for enhancing the quality of my life, including:

Dominican Hospital and dietician Lily Rogers
The Teen Kitchen Project (look into this one - it's a really cool thing
Heidi the ART TEACHER at Katz
Darrel Louis and Janet Romanowski for the best benefit concert ever
Everyone who donated funds, brought food, gave me rides, bought CDs, prayed for me or just generally lifted my spirits - I love you all.

And MOST ESPECIALLY my profound gratitude to my tireless and endlessly patient sweetheart RICK "UKULELE DICK" MCKEE.

SPECIAL acknowledgement must also go to:

VALLEY CHURCHES UNITED MISSIONS, without whom I could not have gotten through this.

I am now able to work a few hours each day after six months of being unable to work and VCUM continues to help me - and a lot of other people - get back up. Donations are always appreciated and tax deductible. And if you put my name in the memo line of your check, they will know I'm still trying my best to hold up my end.

All donors to my fund will receive a CD, so be sure to include your mailing address:

Valley Churches United Missions

"Subversively sexy."
Chris Kee, songwriter

"...Immediately noticeable is Curtis' excellent voice quality crisp enough to lacerate as well as the top-notch quality of the musicianship. ...I think Curtis may have gone and created her own genre and she owns it masterfully. Just beauteous."

Kevan Breitinger,

"One of Santa Cruz's finest songwriters!"

Good Times, Santa Cruz
