This is Emily. She needs your help. She has liver cancer and has to pay her medical bills out of pocket because she cannot get on her partner's health insurance for the simple reason that she is gay. In Kansas, gay people do not have the right to their partner's health insurance, a grievous human rights violation if there ever was one.
This notion give me the angries and makes me want to help, which is why I encourage you go here and learn about the raffle that Fidget is having, all proceeds will help Emily pay her medical bills, which amount to $1000/month. There's some nice yarn to win here and I'm willing to bet that more will be added.
