NYC comedian, artist and writer Erik Bergstrom has been diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. This means lymphoma has spread throughout his body, including his bone marrow. While the disease has done a great deal of damage to Erik, his doctors are extremely optimistic about his survival and recovery.
His friends & members of the NYC comedy scene are helping him by raising funds since he has been unable to work throughout this ordeal and bills are piling up. He will need to buy many different medications, take taxis to and from chemo, eat organically and naturally, and stay warm during the bitter NYC winter.
Please donate to his Go Fund Me: gofundme.com/erikbergstrom
There is also a benefit comedy show on November 4 at The Creek & The Cave in Long Island City.
