Jay Lake is an award winning writer of Science Fiction and Fantasy and one hell of a nice guy. He’s also been a guest on Fast Forward. Jay has been fighting colon cancer since 2008 and is currently on his fourth round of chemotherapy. Right now this doesn’t seem to be working and things aren’t looking so good for Jay.
One of the new things that could help is to do a full genome sequencing for him which could lead his doctors to a new treatment path for him. There is a fundraiser going on at YouCare.com (http://tinyurl.com/anqp49z) right now. Please donate something if you can. Just to help you decide to give, there are a number of Acts of Whimsy that a number of leading SF authors have offered to perform as donations reach various levels.
So, please, help a good man fight a bad thing, help raise the level of whimsy in the universe, and as alot of folks have been have saying – Fuck Cancer!Share
