Kelli needs
1. donations to help pay for costly cancer treatment
2. help
3. to join a gutesy (sp?) real band
4. to speak to the groveling
5. nookie (for real, that’s what it says!)
6. all our prayers and support (especially if #5 is true… considering the unmarried state I am in!)
7. minor healing from surgery
8. a good critique
9. folks to put their heads together and maybe volunteer a little of their time by doing any number of things
10. a family that is patient

(#13 is “Kelli needs him”– again very necessary before requesting #5.)
