Good Morning!

Beto and my mom are currently at the doctor getting the tests done, which will reveal where the cancer has spread in the body. I will let you all know as soon as I hear anything.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone, as I have received such an amazing response. Beto has wonderful friends and I know he loves you all dearly, as I hear about many of you often! I thought that it was important that you all knew what we are trying to raise for the chemotherapy. The hematologist gave us the number $100,000 for getting through the treatment plan. I am absolutely thrilled to say that we have raised $11,200 thus far! One donation was $10,000 which is incredible!! Thank you so very much to this dear friend. I know that most of us are feeling some sort of cruch financially during these times, so it really means a lot. The prayers are just as important so thank you for all of the lovely emails expressing your thoughts.

Thank you all,



  1. Hello Natalie: we were shocked to get this news! I am so very sorry, we LOVE Beto! I posted it on my Facebook page and will forward to everyone I know who may be able to help. Are you able to set up a PayPal account, to encourage those who don't personally know Beto to donate easily? Is there by chance an email list for all the people he has guided over the years? Anything I can do to help facilitate this---just let me know. I will put him (and you and Anita) in our yoga prayer circle and we will forward that as well. Please give him and your mom all of our LOVE!!! ann and jeff
