L.A. Banks diagnosed with cancer.. :( Help via auction!
Hi guys... I hate to interrupt the fun of introducing new authors, but I've got some sad news to impart.
Bestselling author L.A. Banks of Vampire Huntress fame has just been diagnosed with late stage adrenal cancer. She's going to fight this as hard as she can for as long as she can, but unfortunately good cancer care is expensive.
That's where fans like you & I come in. I've discovered that her friends & family have set up a page where we can donate towards her medical care. (Click here for the page.)
If you're in the Philly, PA area then you can take a donation to any Police and Fire Federal Credit Union branch. For the rest of us we can donate via paypal.
If you can, please donate so we can keep her with us for a long time to come!
I've also found the auction site where you can bid on items & the proceeds will go towards Banks' treatment. There's all sorts of wonderful things up for bids from all sorts of authors & people, from Heather Graham offering a two night stay & registration for a conference she's holding, to various businesses offering marketing packages.
All of the opening bids on these items are at a fraction of their cost, so please take a look!
