John Ostrander, long-time writer of Firestorm volume II, needs your help. John has been battling glaucoma for years now. If he loses this battle, he loses his eyesight.
John recently had some very expensive surgery. Without the surgery, he would not have been able to retain his sight. Unfortunately, the resulting medical bills are more than John can afford. This is where we come in…
A benefit auction has been announced to raise money to pay the medical expenses of John Ostrander. His friends and colleagues Mike Gold, Adriane Nash and Peter Katz have organized the benefit auction with the aid of Wizard Entertainment to help pay the medical bills after John’s insurance ran out. The event will take place on the Saturday night (August 9) of Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con in a nearby hotel. If the auction isn’t an option for you, they are taking donations as well.
John gave us years of excellent Firestorm stories (as well as numerous other comics). This is your chance to give something back to him. I feel this is important enough that I’m posting it both here on FIRESTORM FAN and on my other blog, ONCE UPON A GEEK.
