Here at the Lebowskipodcast we sometimes champion good causes, but rarely ask you to actually go out and help someone.  A fellow achiever who went by the handle "Wash" lost his battle with brain cancer September 11, 2012.  Wash and his wife Tashi are a couple whose story Liz and I have been following for a while.  Wash was only 28 when he passed, and he held on for much longer than he was expected to.  Unfortunately this wonderful couple resided in the state of Arizona where they make it quite difficult to receive any government assistance for these kinds of situations.  Tashi could really use your help right now in any way possible.  If you could donate $5, say a prayer or stand up for patient rights - anything would be appreciated.  We re-wrote Walter's eulogy to Donny in honor of Wash and hope you appreciate it.

Wash was a brown coat, and a good
man.  He was. . . He was one of us. 
He was a man who loved architecture,
and science fiction, and as a Whovian he explored
the adventures of Dr Who,

from the Daleks...

...to the Cybermen and The Master. 
He died--he died as so many young men
of his generation, before his time. 
In your wisdom Lord you took him. 
As you took so many bright flowering
young men, at the Battle of Serenity and the Cylon War...

...and both detonations of the Death Star.  These young men gave
their lives.  And so'd Wash.  
Wash who loved Lego.

And so, Kevin—“Wash”—Pratt-King,
in accordance with what we know  
your dying wishes are, we commit
your final mortal remains
to the bosom of...

...your Tardis, which
you loved so well.

Allons-y Wash...you are now a Leaf on the Wind.
