Please help Mike Hendrix of Cold Fury

Mike Hendrix, proprietor of the Cold Fury blog, is in dire straits in an ICU and losing limbs as we speak. He could yet lose his life.

He is a great guy who runs a great blog. His physical condition is dire, and by the time all this is done, so will his medical bills be. Please help him if you can.

The GoFundMe is here.

The tragic, and ongoing, story can be found in several places including the GoFundMe page, but I got it from Bayou Renaissance Man.

Good luck, Mike (my fellow Ravenclaw). Live long and prosper.

UPDATE: There is no “safe” snailing address for cash or check contributions. Or for get-well cards, alas. However, if you can access PayPal, anything sent to will go toward Mike’s expenses. You can use Friends & Family to avoid having a bite taken out of your gift.

    Wingnut. How about an address to mail a donation?

    FWIW, I’ve already left a message for the organizer of the GoFundMe asking the same question: snailing address or direct PayPal addy. (GoFundMe doesn’t work on my system.)

    Haven’t heard yet, but if I do I will post the info.

    Michael Lindsay — Apparently a snailing address isn’t available for various security and privacy reasons. I’m sorry to report that because I know a lot of readers in our corner of the blogosphere prefer cash, MOs, or checks. But that’s the situation.

    I’ve updated the post with a PayPal address. If a snailing address becomes available I’ll post it for sure.
