Last week, I reblogged a plea for aid on behalf of Chloe Sagal, an independent video game developer who needs surgery to remove a bit of metal from her body before it poisons her.
Thanks to the, uh, let’s go with “vigilance” of a stand-up group of people on that bastion of human wisdom and compassion we know as Reddit, that fundraising drive was torpedoed before it could pick up steam. Apparently it was just too much to believe that the U.S. health care system would let someone fall through the cracks rather than admit a mistake and provide someone with care necessary to their continued existence, and that the courts wouldn’t straighten the whole thing out by finding in favor of an individual versus a large corporation.
Well, Chloe’s putting herself on the line again. Here’s the link to her new fundraiser, this time spearheaded by herself. The title? I Am Going To Survive. If that’s not worth a buck or two, I don’t know what is.
