Just a quick update to remind readers that our October Cancer Fund drive is still going. Any donations sent before November 2nd will be eligible for our donation giveaway:
I’d like to again thank thank the folks who donated these items and agreed to extend this drive through the end of October.
In case you are wondering what this is all about: My wife is recovering from oral cancer. We are some of the 40 to 50 million people in the US who do not have health insurance and do not qualify for government aid as we live in Texas and have no children. The cancer treatments and related expenses have cost over $110,000 so far. While over half of this has been absorbed by hospital foundations and the like (and some of the rest was covered by our July Donation Drive), we still owe a lot of it.
We have established a RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund for donations. Everyone who donates anything at all (even a dollar) gets access to a few special downloads (like pdfs of two 1970s D&D fanzines, a special edition of Microlite74, and more) as described on that page.
To get help us pay our cancer treatment related bills (and to get access to some special downloads and possibly the above mentioned items), send a donation in any amount — small or large — to me via Paypal. My apologies for having to ask for donations and my heartfelt thanks to everyone who donates. If you cannot donate but wish to help, please spread the word about my request and offer. Thank you very much in advance.
