I don’t ask for much. I’ve never charged anyone for a translation. You’ve never seen a “donate” button on this website. I create things because I want to make people smile and feel alive. It’s why I got into the entertainment industry. So when I say I need you to pay my generosity forward, you know I’m serious. Below you’ll find a funny video. It’s the first of many I’m making for my friend Rhiannon or Rhi to help draw attention to her website RhiCoverASmile.com.
I am willing to make a fool of myself over and over again to my last fool drop, to save this girl. I have no shame when it comes to her life.
Operation “Rhicover A Smile” is a fund set up by friends of Rhiannon Gregory-Roux, to help cover the medical costs of surgery and treatments she needs to repair potentially life-threatening damage left by a toxic chemotherapy drug she was given for her endometriosis. This drug, named Lupron Depot (Leuprolide acetate), is currently under fire for causing irreversible side effects, such as, damage to the central nervous system, autoimmune disorders, thinning of bones and marrow, memory loss and cognitive dysfunction, just to name a few. To add insult to injury, the majority of the time, Lupron provides little to no benefit to the condition for which it was prescribed. There’s a good reason as to why this might be the case, as the manufacturer, Abbott Labs, had admitted during a lawsuit in 1998, that 80% of the drug trial data was falsified and adequate testing had not been done before FDA approval. Please check out our pages regarding the Lupron controversy, the FDA’s role and the current litigation involving health risks and “profit before people” billing fraud happening in hospitals all over the country. Hundreds of thousands of men, women and children have had their lives destroyed because of this drug and despite the overwhelming evidence of toxicity, the FDA has yet to enforce a ban. We hope this angers you, educates you and warns you of this extremely harmful poison, but most of all, we hope it motivates you to help our friend, who we deeply love and care about and gives us all a reason to smile. Oh, and pies. Lot and lots of pies.
This is a charity, but it’s also a celebration of life, love, and weirdness. Rhi is a wonderful woman, and I absolutely will not see her go out like this. Her husband Jeff, has been my friend since I was a skinny, odd little kid. I first met him while he was hiding behind a tree in his own backyard. He was the best man at my wedding. I would do anything for him and his.
I won’t be coy about this. Please visit the website. Donate what you can. Whether that’s time, money $$$$$ or weirdness. Share Rhi’s story and let’s save this awesome girl!
