Help Laurie Breathe

Our friend Laurie Laliberte was recently rushed to the hospital. Her respiration system had failed and Laurie almost didn't make it. She is still not able to communicate, and we don't know when she'll be back.
Laurie is a freelance editor for independent authors. Her life's work is to help others, and she gives of herself with reckless abandon. Even though she edits some of the biggest names in the industry, she loves working with newcomers and makes it her responsibility to guide them. In addition to that, she edits charity anthologies for free, and hosts a hugely-popular blog about crocheting where people all over the world get to use her wonderful patterns.  
Now, it is our time to help her. Laurie is facing significant hospital bills and the loss of her residence. We've set up a crowdfundeddonation site called Help Laurie Breathe, where people can give $5 and more via PayPal. If everyone who reads Laurie's blog or has been touched by her work gives just $5, she'll be able to receive the treatment she needs.
There are other levels beyond $5, and one of them contains a special incentive. Thank you for visiting this site, and thank you for supporting our friend Laurie Laliberte.
