Like Ole I'd pray if I believed, and have sent my best wishes with a small donation.
One of Jorge's prints has prime spot in my collection, and sits alongside prints by internationally known European photographers, Fay Godwin, John Blakemore, Robert Doisneau, etc etc.
Jorge's work is on its own, he spans traditions and cultures, using Platinum/palladium, and the heavy spanish catholic infuences in his suject matter, means he crosses many cultural boudaries with his image making.
We need you back making new images, so good luck Jorge.
I've placed one of my prints in the classifieds, all of the proceeds from the sale will go to Jorge.
great idea Robert, I have done the same thing.

great idea Robert...I'll second that Lee. I too have added one to the classifieds for Jorge.

Both Liz and my families have had our fair share of cancers, we (sort of) know what you're going through. Keep the faith and know that we're all pulling for you.
We just made a donation to Jorge via Paypal. Thanks to Sean and Aggie for getting this info out to us. The sense of family here at APUG will never cease to amaze me...

I just added one of my platinum prints to the Classified section. It's a 4x5 contact print of a negative I made while visiting Jorge last year. 5 prints are available.
I have updated the main thread with links to member prints for Jorge. I'll update the main thread post if more come in. Thanks!
UPDATE - We now have members selling 4 prints in the classifieds area wih all proceeds going to Jorge's fund. Here are direct links to the prints:

Sean- all those links for some reason turn into the APUG homepage after you click them.

I'm joining the bandwagon; Print Sales For Jorge! See the classifieds. Mine is new for 2006, hasn't been offered for sale before.

I started another thread for print sales for Jorge; http://www.apug.org/forums/showthread.php?t=27054
Hope this helps to get more attention for the offerings.

All you folks are just amazing! And a special 'Thank You' to Kevin, Robert, Lee, Bill, Gerhard and Alex for offering your beautiful photographs for sale with proceeds going to Jorge. I wish him a speedy recovery, and hope to see him back in good health soon.

Someone made a post on the LF Forum tonight about Jorge quoting several of the posts above. I added a post with a link to the APUG Classified section for the print sales.
Your photography is wonderful. Tap into the strength your friends and well wishers offer; get well soon.
A small donation headed your way soon...

Jorge, I have been missing you online. I noticed you were not very present lately and have just now learned the reason why. Let me tell you I am very saddened to hear such news, really...It hit me hard and it brought me tears.
I did not hessitate to order one of your very beautiful prints I will certainly hang it up in my best wall for my own visual enjoyment and to have you very present. I hope that helps some.
Fight hard my friend!!

My prayers are with you Jorge. I can't buy a print right now but will send something to help out. When the funds become available I will buy a print also.

It's always been an adventure to read Jorge's posts and I always enjoyed them. I would encourage all of us to buy a Jorge original print. I just bought this one: http://www.apug-gallery.com/details.php?gid=67&sgid=&pid=373. I really like the composition and the light. I wish Jorge a speedy recovery and as much energy in fighting this damn desease as he has always shown in his posts here and over at The Large Format Forum!

I'm very sorry to see this news. Best wishes for a successful treatment and for many more years of passionate photography and spirited debate.

I've always found you to be a lightening quick, razor sharp, and eloquent defender of traditional photography. You're personality on-line (as it must be in real life) is that of a Force of Nature...stopping you from defending your views would be like standing on a beach and willing back the incoming tide. Like somebody else said, those qualities will serve you well in this struggle.

Paypal donation sent. One day I hope to buy your " Mineral de Pozos" image but for now I sent what I can.
Good luck my freind
