Help save their lives

My publisher Julie and her beloved partner Azucar are in the hospital in Mexico with Covid. Both are very ill. Julie now has pneumonia, and Azucar is in ICU with a ventilator. No insurance for this, and big costs.

They are my dear friends and both give tirelessly to charities, children at orphanages, and so much more. They also provide sanctuary to homeless cats and rehome them to Canada. Their generosity and compassion are endless for everyone.

Now they've both been struck down, and need our help. This could happen to any of us, and we survive because we are all connected and help each other. Thank you for your support, compassion and love. All funds will be donated to Julie Salisbury's company, Influence Publishing Inc, for the medical care of both Julie and her fiance.
