Fundraiser for Mirka Hodurova, Co-creator of the Original Chuck Palahniuk Writers Workshop

Fundraiser for Mirka Hodurova, Co-creator of the Original Chuck Palahniuk Writer

I'm sure many of you remember Mirka from back in the Cult days, whether from participating in the workshop or frequenting the message boards. She could always be found lurking, ready to dole out a friendly word of encouragement to members new and old alike. In addition to that, she was instrumental in keeping the wheels greased behind the screens.

This past August, Mirka was diagnosed with Stage 3 esophageal cancer. She's had to move forward with treatment very quickly since her diagnosis, and is receiving medical care at Kaiser Oakland. A GoFundMe has been set up to help defer the costs of her medical treatment and living expenses. You can read the full details on her page:

Love Medicine for Mirka

Please consider helping if you are able, and do stop by to leave an encouraging word for an old friend.
