Over the years, I've consistently kept any personal favors to a minimum. I don't like to abuse the position you all have afforded me to make personal non-political requests. But I'm going to break from tradition for this special case.
My Greek cousin's five-year-old son Vasilakis has a serious heart defect. The doctors in Greece can't handle the situation, but doctors at Boston Children's Hospital think they have a handle on the problem and can treat it. Problem is, being Greek nationals, they have no insurance to cover expenses. Those are expected to top $100,000.
Vasilakis and his family will be staying with my in-laws in New Hampshire, so all money raised will go toward medical expenses. I obviously make many asks of you, on behalf of candidates, on behalf of the site, on behalf of many issues we care about. Don't feel obligated to give more than you can, I love and appreciate you all for just being here in the first place.
But if you can spare even a few bucks, that would mean the world for this adorable kid and his (and my) family.
You can donate via his GoFundMe campaign here. Thanks.
