may 17, evening

So I thought I’d clarify a bit more about the Tiana Lyons fund-raiser that I mentioned in the last post, so’s you know where you need to go get your party on, and why, after NWGRoHC Day at my place:

Many of you know know Leo Bersamina. I’ve known Leo for over a decade. He’s an amazing artist and educator, with the loveliest wife (Tiana) and daughter (Olive) ever. In late March, Tiana was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

Tiana is getting care, but the situation is extremely dicey. The family is in dire need of money for alternative medical treatments that aren’t covered by Leo’s health insurance and all the related costs (child care, counseling, supplements) that also aren’t covered. They only learned of the disease a few weeks ago and because of the late stage, timing is critical. We have to help them out, as quickly as possible. Olive is only 3, and she deserves as much time with her mother as she can possibly get.

You can learn more about what’s happening, as well as donate to their fund on their site here:
