I got a call yesterday...

...from a friend in our chess community.  We played dozens of games of blitz in Rogers Park coffeehouses, back in the days when my now 21-year-old was kibitzing from a baby stroller.

Six weeks ago, his longtime significant other learned that she has a Stage 4 cancer.  She's getting great care at St. Francis's in Evanston, and he's spending all his time with her, essentially living at the hospital.

It'll soon be time to go home.  They live in a third-floor walkup, and he needs to find a ground-floor apartment ASAP (even one flight of stairs is too much).  Proximity to the hospital (Evanston, Rogers Park, West Rogers Park) would be ideal.

Please drop me a line if you know of something and I'll forward to our friend.
