Okay, I need your help. My wife, Sylv Taylor, is bed-bound with Lupus and her laptop is the only link she has to the outside world. That laptop is also what she uses to create art, including coloring comics. It's dying - it shut off 10 times in 3 hours today - and when it's dead she'll be utterly isolated and unable to create.

PLEASE consider helping in getting her a new laptop. If you can't pledge, PLEASE share this and tell your friends. If her laptop dies and I can't replace it, she's going to have nothing to do and no one but me to talk to, all day, every day. This laptop is literally her life and her world.

My comic book doesn't come out until November, and I won't see royalties until January - if it makes money. I'm really worried that her laptop is going to die before I can do anything about it. I have a few friends who have sent me some, and that's been set aside, but the rest I'm trying to collect through Indiegogo.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
