"New Yorkers are born all over the world, you move here and you're lucky enough to choose your family. Eric has become just that, family. This city and business is so tough and we've got to stick together. Seeing the outpouring of love for Eric has been so inspiring. I love my family :)"

 

From Eric's GoFundMe page: 

Family, chosen family, friends...

In the last week our incredible friend Eric L. Summers was admitted into the hospital with Cancer- multiple myeloma. I saw him a few days ago and he was his vibrant, shady, loving self but it seems its taken a turn since then. He started chemotherapy which of course has drained his body. Phenmonia hit this past weekend, his white cells have depleted and his breathing has become labored. Thankfully, the hard work of his loving doctors have proved to be aiding in his healing process. The pneumonia has become less severe, Eric has been able to acknowledge his family in his hospital room, and will hopefully begin receiving visitors again soon. He has incredible doctors by his side and even better his mom and brothers. Now he needs us.

He’s taken a leave from Kinky Boots, his mom has taken a leave from her job and her every day life in St. Louis, and one of his brothers is moving to NY from STL after Eric leaves the hospital to aid in his care full time. This is a huge financial burden. Rent, food for him and his family, transportation to and from hospital and rehab appointments, his gorgeous dog (Niko), and of course all the medical bills. I know he is loved by so many of you and if you could make even the smallest donation it would help tremendously. If theres one thing I know about this man is if someone needed your back he would be the first one there.

There are a few wonderful people that will be updating all of you with his recovery, but we will keep most, if not all updates, directly from his mother. We are all sending so much love, energy and prayer his way.
