Peter Camejo Update 1

Dear friends,

Peter Camejo has lymphoma cancer for a second time. He successfully fought it back once and he is aggressively pursuing available medical treatments, chemo and even stem cells. These treatments could give him one or more extra years. His attitude is to go forward with his life as if the treatments will be successful. While he is undergoing treatment he is continuing with his work at his brokerage firm, which is undergoing an expansion. He is also working very hard on his memoirs to share his experiences, both personal and activist related.

Several of us would like to organize an event where we would honor Peter for his lifelong activism and learn about his upcoming book. He has been an inspiration to so many people.

I hope you can help us get the contact information of friends and comrades, whose lives Peter has touched over his years of activism, and who are now spread far and wide. We have set up a blog where people can read updates and write in

Peter is upbeat and wants everyone to know that he appreciated all those who contacted him during his first battle with cancer and knows people care. Because Peter doesn't have the energy to respond to everyone, Alex and I have taken on the role of coordinating. He wants to focus on getting his book done because of the uncertainty of his conquering the cancer this second time, so he would prefer people not contact him directly, using instead the blog to post comments, or contacting us.
