Drew Olanoff is a close friend of mine. We met last year during my boss’ Gnomedex conference in Seattle, and clicked immediately. We share a love of people and technology, and have the same weird sense of humor. We’ve stayed in close contact via email/IM/phone over the past several months, solidifying and strengthening our friendship.
When Drew learned that he has Hodgkins Lymphoma back in May, he was ticked off. Me… I cried. I was terrified that I would lose my friend. I wanted to know what I could do to help. Little did I know that I would soon be able to help in a very big way.
