Fandom responded generously to B5 Jumpgate pin creator Elana Kestrel’s appeal for help, making a big difference in her ability to afford immediate chemo treatment. And now she’s reporting some progress in her fight against cancer:
At my most recent oncology visit on January 19, I learned that the chemotherapy had been effective in starting to shrink the tumor. Before you guys came through for me I was afraid that I would have to delay my chemotherapy for an indefinite time because I did not have the funds to move to a safe place for a good recovery. Because of the SF online community came through during a very difficult time, I now get to hope for a much brighter future.
