Link to The Babz Chula Lifeline
Babz Chula is a national treasure and right now she needs your help -- so please share this post (or at least these links) with everyone you know.
Babz is currently fighting two different types of cancer and she’s using alternative therapies that aren’t covered by the Canadian Health Care system. So the Babz Chula Lifeline for Artists Society is raising money to help cover her treatments.
The Green Chain was Babz’ first gig after recovering from her last bout with cancer and I know everyone on the movie was honoured that she was willing to play with us.
So now I’m going to drop the names of some of the stars who are donating their time and/or memorabilia to the cause because I want everyone to visit eBay to bid early, often and extravagantly... David Duchovny (The X-Files), Nick Lea (Men in Trees), Chris Carter (Harsh Realm – okay, The X-Files too, but Harsh Realm was amazing and you should check it out on DVD), Gabrielle Miller (Corner Gas), Callum Keith Rennie (almost every cool Canadian movie you've ever seen), Jewel Staite (Firefly & Stargate Atlantis), Kandyse McClure (Battlestar Galactica) and The Green Chain’s Tahmoh Penikett.
Babz is a joy to work with and to be with and I know she’s got hundreds of great roles left to play – both on and off stage.
So bid early, bid often and if you can’t find anything to buy, and even if you can, make a donation anyway for all the times you’ve seen her on stage or screen -- or off stage and screen -- and she’s made you laugh or cry or feel happy to be alive.
