Comedian Charlie Hill Is Fighting Cancer and Needs Your Help

You'd be hard pressed to find a Native standup comic who doesn't cite Charlie Hill as an influence. Now the humorist and actor is reaching out. He's been battling lymphoma for over a year, and his family could use some help with expenses. For this reason, they've set up the Charlie Hill Fund at the donating site EverRibbon.com. The brief text outlining the reason for the campaign ends with the words, "the Hill family humbly thanks you at this time for your prayers and contributions."

The campaign, just four days old, is picking up steam. The donor list includes such Indian country notables as Bill Miller and Joy Harjo, and of course several Native comedians, among them JR Redwater, Ryan McMahon, Larry Omaha, and Marc Yaffee. But you don't have to be famous to help out, and more help is needed.
