Go Fund Me for Brent Chumley
Many of you know fantasy, sci-fi, science-fiction gaming and novel cover artist Brent Chumley. He is a staple at various gaming, fandom conventions including Comic Cons, GenCon, GaryCon, Origins, Gamehole Con, Archon and many others. Brent was recently hospitalized due to a rapidly spreading flesh eating infection and underwent over 20 hours of surgery between clearing the infected tissue and plastic reconstructive process.
This left Brent hospitalized for an entire month, with him finally returning home just several days ago. He is now continuing his recovery process there, which will take him some time to fully function again. During Brent’s time in the hospital, his home was broken into and a great deal of items were stolen from him. Using a landscaping paver, the thieves busted out his sliding glass door, causing the glass to shatter. Many of his possessions were taken, including his work computer-with which Brent uses to make a living, all of his high end photography gear (cameras and lenses), art supplies, expensive music production gear, along with several other items. A police report has been filed, but the local law enforcement is not optimistic about recovering any of the aforementioned stolen property.
Like many of us during these trying economic times, Brent does not have homeowner’s insurance to get him back up and running as quickly as possible. Funds from this campaign will be used to help pay for replacing the sliding glass door, work equipment, and art supplies, as well as paying for help with everyday tasks such as cleaning, errand running, and travel to various doctor appointments.
As Brent recovers, no donation is too small, and Brent would appreciate it very much if you could share this with your circle of friends and the various convention show pages to maximize exposure.
Thank you, Brent will be grateful for any and all help!
