Academic Coach has set up a way to help an ABD blogger named "Badger" deal with the medical costs for her terminally ill husband. Check out the link and consider contributing to the "Badger Fund." The family's medical costs are enormous, the U.S. government is no help (of course), and anything we can spare will surely help.
Here's Badger's blog, by the way.
Update, 8/30/05: News from Academic Coach that Badger's husband has passed away. Also this from Badger herself.
