Surely he has contacts with movers and shakers or knows people who do -- some business or somebody with an airplane who at least has the self-serving need to generate some goodwill and/or make the news by using their corporate plane for something really GREAT -- to get this gal to the US hospital for life-saving treatment!

Just brainstorming here!

If you have Air France Frequent flyer miles, you may be able to help in that regard. See latest from the save Hollis website that Moshe posted in OP.

Air France FFM
Attention all world travelers:
Many of you have pledged your frequent flyer miles to the cause, and we may be able to use them.
We are looking into a flight on Air France.
If you are able to transfer FFM from AIR FRANCE to Harrison or Hollis, then we could use your help.
Please email me or contact Harrison if you have his details.

A quick google gives us the following information. Air France seems to have some sort of reciprocity of miles with: Delta, Continental, Aeroflot, AeroMexico, KLM (Royal Dutch Airways), AllItalia, China Southern, Czech Airlines, Korean Air, NWA, Sky Team Associates, Air Europe, Air Kenya, and Copa Airlines. Sky Team seems to be the pertinent name. But at any rate, that's three domestic airlines, and I'm guessing that more of us are getting miles from Delta than from Air France.

What fucking crawled up your butt this morning, A II Z? Okay, I know that you didn't sign this post with "A II Z", so apparently it's a joke and not meant to be taken seriously, but dude, FUCK OFF! I don't understand what could possibly make you want to spew this shit off when this is nothing but a serious plea to help someone in our community.

Small donations and larger donations all add up very nicely. Hollis' condition is improving and it's time to bring her home. Times are tough for all, but not as tough as they are for Hollis.
Let's show the true compassion that we all share and donate what you can. There is a link for PayPal here. :D

It was my suggestion that AntiM remove the sticky from this thread, as most of us tend to look past those at the top. My thought is that people will look at this when someone updates it and it bounces back to the top of the list.
If someone has an update on Hollis, please post it when you get a chance.

I received this message from my local burner group. Can anyone confirm if this is true? Do we know if Holli is heading home today (Monday)?
**********************
A few days ago, I mentioned the plight of Hollis Hawthorne, a burner hurt
in India. According to a blog set up for her support, she will be coming
home to SFO soon.

On a more impressive note, the universe has raised near $90,000, her
family, an additional $30,000. The role of the Burningman community cannot
be denied. Pretty impressive for circus freaks, hippies, and drug addicts
(apologies to anyone I left out). It's nice to be part of it.

Here is a quote from the http://helpholligethome.blogspot.com/ website

Holli is in the air!! I haven't heard from Diane since they left Chennai yesterday, but I checked their flight information and they are enroute. Their flight got a little delayed in Dubai, so they will be around 2:30 pm getting to San Fransisco. Karen, Harrison's mom, worked very hard yesterday making phone calls to arrange ground transport for Holli from the airport to Stanford. ....

This message is from one of the above blogs. Holli is back in the states. Here are the two entries.
**************************************

I just spoke briefly with Diane. Holli is in ICU at Stanford. They are getting her settled in her room and giving her a work over, I'm sure. Diane is so relieved, thankful and just overwhelmed by everything that everyone has done to make this happen. She is also very exhausted. I don't think she has slept since Saturday night. She is going to see Holli for the last visiting hour and then go to Karen's and crash. She did tell Heather, Holli's sister, that as they were loading Holli onto the plane, she saw tears in Holli's eyes as if she knew they were bringing her home.

We will continue to post on Holli's progress as information comes to us. Now that we have Holli back in the states, we are changing our focus to get her back to her home. Feel free to check in with us to keep up with her journey on the road to recovery.
***********
They are home!

Just spoke with Doug. He said Diane called real quickly from the plane at about 5:00 central time to let him know that they had landed. She said that Holli tolerated the trip well. They kept her sedated for most of the flight. Will let everyone know as soon as I have more information.

Hooray! It's good to know that the funds were raised to get her the care she needs. There was an *awesome* fundraiser event here in P-town last Wednesday; it felt like the closest thing to being on Playa since last August. I've never met her, but I emptied at least a day's pay into the fund, and talked to many cool people who know her well, and there was so much energy being poured out toward helping her, I wish she could've seen it!

Here's to her speedy recovery! Best case scenario, we'll all be reunited back home this summer!

From what I have read the answers are yes and no. Yes to coma and no to being induced.

In answer to your question I read this at


http://friendsofhollis.blogspot.com/

Hey All. I just wanted to report out on The Gerlach event Saturday night. Everything went great and we were able to raise $1326.40!

I wanted to make sure and thank the following people that made this happen!
-Ullass, for having the plan
-Larry Guisasola, proprietor of Joe's Gerlach Club
-Jon "Farmer" Farnsworth for bbqin (AGAIN!!)
-Quinn and Andy Luna for setting up and playing music on the fly
-All the people that came from points beyond: Winnemucca, Reno, Oakland, SF, etc.

And a VERY SPECIAL THANKS all the people of Gerlach and Empire, who not only showed up when they heard what was going on but donated their time, money and enough awesome food to feed everyone!

My pics are here, sorry there aren't more.
