With A Little Help From Her Friends
Ann Craig found out this past week that she has skin cancer -- more specifically, melanoma, which is no lightweight in the cancer lineup. She's already had one operation to remove the most obvious tissue (from her leg), and is going into surgery again tomorrow morning (9:45 Pacific) so they can remove more, hopefully get it all. They didn't operate more radically the first time because they didn't yet have the biopsy. When the doctors got it, and gave Ann the news, they told her they wanted a second go at her.

In spite of what is obviously a scary prospect, Ann's spirit is indomitable. She is no less a serious-and-funny motherfucker in facing this than she was before the surprises of this past week. This recent photo oh her -- on a Russian submarine! don't even ask -- says more than I could hope to about her courage, spunk, humor, and all-around wonderful open-sky heart.

Ann Craig

Please join me in pulling for her. Whatever you do in the face of death, please do now for her. It will make a difference. Ann gave me her permission to post this. She thanks you for the all the love and kindness in your hearts.

Oh yeah, and she said she'd really appreciate getting mail, as she's going to be laid up (and blissed out on the finest pain meds; lucky stiff) for the next few days. You can write to her at cilanntro@yahoo.com.

...uh, I guess I shouldn't have said "lucky stiff," huh? But fuck it. If we can't laugh at what we most fear, what does our laughter count for in the final analysis? This is no joke, of course, but then, so little of this precious life is. I hope you will pray for Ann, burn incense, sacrifice the neighbor's cat... as I said, whatever it is you do at times like this. I have personally seen pure concentrated freak power save a life, and there are enough freaks who will see this -- please make sure it travels -- to do it again. As Allen Ginsberg once said in a slightly different context, "I'm putting my queer shoulder to the wheel." Please add yours and -- whether they know Ann or not; what difference does it make? -- ask your pals to do the same.

best to all,

Chris Locke's photos More of Chris Locke's photos

Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of. I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos." It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.
