Help Todd Urick get well!

From Jeff Simmons via email:

Todd Urick is an absolute angel who helped countless west coast organizations apply for CPs in the last FCC application window and has run on hard times since the holidays. It hasn't gotten any better for him since November.

KZME (Metroeast's new FM entity) would not exist without his work, and PRA would not have a 1.3kw Full-Power CP in southern Oregon - and that's just how he helped organizations I was involved in. Please help out one of our own who can't help himself right now.
