Helping Laura and Katherine get through my death.

I am dying of lymphoma. My wife, Laura, has been nothing but a hero during this time. She is about to lose two incomes (mine and hers) as she manages and does research in a lab we shared together. 

My life insurance is tiny thanks to academia and our savings are nearly nonexistent. 

My biggest fear is that she won't have resources to get up on her feet. Please consider supporting her through my absence.
