Brian Keene Burn Fund

$56,340 of $60,000 goal

Raised by 1,229 people in 15 days
Created June 5, 2018
On June 5, 2018, author, podcaster, philanthropist, and father Brian Keene was badly burned in an accident.  At this time he is conscious and in good spirits but has first degree burns on his face and second degree burns on his body.

As a freelance author, Brian does not have health insurance.  We're not sure at this time how long he'll be in treatment, or how much the bill will be, but any visit to the hospital is expensive, and will only be compounded by lost wages from not being able to work.

We're asking the community of writers, horror fans, and just decent human beings in general to chip in a few dollars to help get Brian back on his feet and spending time with his loving girlfriend and sons.  We'd be very grateful for anything you can afford to contribute.

Hey, everybody! I know sometimes fundraisers just sort of fizzle out - or worse yet, end up getting embezzled by sticky fingers. So I just wanted to let you all know that I assigned Brian as the sole beneficiary of this fund the day I created it. He states today (Monday, June 18) "We got our first (of many) hospital bill today. It is such a relief to be able to pay it. Thank you all.‬"

Your donations have made a palpable difference and I remain floored by your generosity. But please also remember there's a long road ahead for Brian and nearly a quarter million dollars in medical expenses still to come. So, if you have an unscrounged quarter in the couch or a friend you haven't mentioned the GoFundMe to yet, please keep the kindness train rolling. Thanks!

Brian is out of surgery. He had artificial skin grafts on his arm and now can’t move for 24 hours. So now instead of sending virtual hugs it would be appropriate to start sending virtual waves. :P

Hi everybody! I just got back from visiting Brian in the hospital with Somer Canon and Mike Lombardo. Brian is in good spirits but physically is in bad pain and will be in the hospital for a while. Thursday he’s scheduled to have artificial skin graft surgery. He sends thanks for all of your contributions and is floored as always by the generosity of the writing and horror communities and just the decent folks who have chipped in.
