Hi, I'm JJ Hoffman (Formerly known as Jeanine Hoffman) a sometimes writer/editor and friend of Patty Schramm and her wife Sandra. As some of you know, when Patty came over this summer for the CLS Con, she went home with the US version of Covid which, as many things are here in the states, bigger than what they were experiencing in the Netherlands.
Patty, being the kind and generous person she is passed it to Sandra and they are still dealing with the repercussions. The mental health cost of this while Patty is looking for a new day job has been taking a toll on them both.
I know, money is tight for all of us, but if people can chip in anything, or even throw some good job leads out for Patty-it will all help. At the same all of this happened they also had some repairs they had to make to their home and Patty has had her own separate from Covid health stuff happening.
They don't know I'm doing this yet but I heard the stress in their voices when we spoke over Thanksgiving and I'd love it if this could be our holiday gift to two women who have given the GCLS and the world of lesbian and Xena fanfic a lot over the years.
Thanks and please spread the link for others to get a chance to help.
