*** Due to a return of the cancer, I'm increasing the goal again. She'll be going into chemo, which means I won't be able to work as much and will need to pay for a cafe provider for her while I am able to work. This isn't greed, but a change in circumstances. Thanks. ***
Sylv has ovarian cancer and is going into surgery on Wednesday to remove a tumor roughly 15cm in her lower abdomen. She is a legally blind artist and comic creator along with her disabled writer/artist husband, Larime, and as struggling artists they barely get by. She's been housebound for over a decade due to a number of medical issues, and bedbound for the last four.
They recently moved to Las Vegas to be closer to family and start a new life after over a decade of poverty and hardship. Sylv got a new wheelchair with the help of a bunch of wonderful people and started having the hopes of a normal life again. Just a few months ago they went out to dinner for the first time in 14 years.
Four days after her 40th birthday, she had to be taken to the hospital for severe abdominal pain. On December 3rd they will be removing her uterus and both ovaries along with the mass.
All contributions will go to helping her and the family get through the medical ordeal, lost productivity and severe cut in cash flow, and ongoing treatment and recovery.
We know it's the holidays, so every little bit is GREATLY appreciated.
