Christine Morgan's Recovery Fund

It’s a rare thing to encounter a person who has devoted themselves wholly to making others feel better, live better and be happy. As a medical professional, as a book reviewer, as an author and as a mother, Christine Morgan has dedicated herself to making others happy. Her friends and family know her as a warm and positive person, and she is always willing - in some cases, eager - to bake delicious treats, craft dolls based on genre horror or other authors' characters, and provide unflagging support for small press publishers and the Portland Bizarro scene.

Sadly, Christine is faced with terrible challenges lately. After beating thyroid cancer while in college, last year she was diagnosed with it again. Christine suffers from cancer of the nose and mouth and has received numerous surgeries and treatments. While Christine remains confident and tenacious, she is about to go through another round of surgeries and hospitalization, and because she cannot work while dealing with these issues, the financial devastation is every bit as harsh as the physical.

While the cost of her treatments are staggering, this does not mean that donations -- no matter how small -- can’t help to make Christine’s life better. From day-to-day expenses, unforeseen emergencies, and her medication regimen, these donations mean that she doesn't have to choose between eating, purchasing medication, or providing food and pet care for her cats. For people facing serious health issues, the financial and emotional impact of these expenditures cannot be underestimated. Christine gives so much to her friends, her family, those she works with, and her support of the arts in general, and this is our chance to give back.

A win-win way to support Christine without donating directly is to buy one of her books! Peruse her titles at her Amazon page.
