As many of you know, I have been struggling with my health a lot in the past year. I was diagnosed with a chronic illness that has severely limited my mobility and landed me in the hospital with a septic infection.
We’ve made a fundraiser page to help alleviate the cost of my recovery over the next few months. If it is at all within your means, any support would be appreciated. We have put together a lot of really cool presents and prizes for donating with the help and generosity of my friends and fellow poets at Where Are You Press, my friends and community here in Portland are also organizing a benefit for Friday, May 9th called Porchlight Semantics, please consider coming out and supporting our show if you are in the area!
I feel overwhelmed with gratitude for the love and support I have gotten so far. I am increasingly aware how much being able-bodied for the first 20 years of my life was a privilege, and how much it enabled me to go out and build the support system I have today. My community is loving and generous, and this experience has been so humbling and taught me so much. I believe we need to look out for each other and support each other, and I thank you so much for your help.
P.S. Whether or not you can support, please like/reblog and share! It makes a huge difference, I promise.
Hey y’all! This is my wonderful and fantastic girlfriend Clementine and any kind of love and support you could give would be just phenomenal. Please consider donating or even purchasing some of the rewards for being a supporter (she kicks my ass in poetry every day of the week, so if you think I’m good, I’m peanuts compared to her work).
If you can’t help fiscally, please just spread the word! Every small thing adds up to something great.
