Help Laurie Breathe

Our friend Laurie Laliberte was recently rushed to the hospital. Her respiration system had failed and Laurie almost didn't make it. She is still not able to communicate, and we don't know when she'll be back. 
Laurie is a freelance editor for independent authors. Her life's work is to help others, and she gives of herself with reckless abandon. She always makes room in her tight editing schedule to work with newcomers and takes on the responsibility of guiding them toward success. She also edits charity anthologies to raise money for exploited children, and hosts a hugely-popular blog about crotcheting where people all over the world get to use her wonderful pattern designs. 
Now it is our time to help Laurie. She is facing significant hospital bills and the loss of her residence. We've set up this crowdfunded donation site where people can give $5 and more via PayPal. If everyone who reads Laurie's blog or has been touched by her work gives just $5, she'll get the treatment she needs. 
There are levels beyond $5, and one of them contains a special incentive. Thank you for visiting this site, and thank you for supporting our friend Laurie Laliberte.
