support for bat and her daughter

On the morning of Thursday, June 4th, we received a call that bat was found unresponsive at home and being taken to the hospital. She is currently on life support but her recovery is very unlikely. We’ve had a parade of doctors warn us that the most likely outcome is that, as she went an hour without oxygen, irreversible brain damage would have occurred. The medical professionals are not sure the cause of this. They have ruled our heart attack but are unclear why she stopped breathing. 

dawn and I are doing our best to assist with the logistical aspects; bat’s one fear of death was what would happen to her daughter (K), who has some challenges that she requires assistance with. We promised bat that we would look after K and we have been/will continue to do so.   

One way you can help is support this fund for whatever happens next. As unlikely as it appears to be, If bat recovers, she will be saddled with hundreds of thousands in medical bills. If she dies, her daughter will have lost the only financial support she has. Whatever you donate will help with either of these scenarios.

(please note that a separate fundraiser will be set up for the "vanilla" side of bat; please do not feel obligated to donate to both - it is the same cause)
