There is a special author and friend of mine desperately who needs all of our help. She suffers from a rare disorder of the brain in which a brain cyst grows and puts pressure on a part of the brain, causing partial blindness, pain, difficulty with her gait, etc. She needs an expensive and delicate brain surgery to remove the cyst before the symptoms become permanent. If you can help her with any small amount, she would greatly appreciate it. Her name is Maria McCutchen, and she is divorced and raising two young boys. The site to contribute any amount is below.
