Del and his medical condition
Many of you may know Del from the Pagan community, from past LARPs, from board game get-togethers, from the BDSM/kink community, or just because you're part of the network of strange and wonderful people that he's helped or connected with over the years.

If you don't know him: Del is a beloved friend and a valued colleague; a talented and skilled spirit worker, a gifted teacher, a bold and compassionate spiritual explorer; a funny and generous person with a special mission to help "the luckless, the abandoned, and the forsaked". He blogs about some of this at http://sexgodsrockstars.wordpress.com/

The matter at hand: Del is in a life-or-death situation- literally. On December 28th, he is having a very serious operation at Johns Hopkins. (For the details, please see his medical issues blog at http://dyingforadiagnosis.com/). He has been dealt a really crappy hand health-wise for several years, and things have come to a head.

This is not a request for material help- he has done that already
There has been a wonderful outpouring of support already; something for which he's profoundly grateful
(http://dyingforadiagnosis.com/2012/11/29/assaulted-by-gratitude/). But he knows that there people who want to know more, and/or help out in other ways.

For many reasons, he has decided not to use social media to keep people apprised of his medical situation in regards to the upcoming surgery and recovery. Mostly, he wants to make sure that people who were interested in being apprised of the details, and who would want to be actively involved in things like scheduling visits and helping out, had access to the information they need without clogging up their feeds.

To that end, he's decided to use a service that he thinks will work well for the various things everyone can collaborate on, from general notifications of how he's doing, to helping out with various projects that Rave and he will need assistance with. It's called Wiggio. If you're interested, please email delandrave at gmail dot com for details.
