I get asks occasionally related to the Depression Guide I wrote to help you guys write more realistic characters, and I wanted to say from personal experience that this Buzzfeed article really resonates. I normally disagree with points on their lists, but for this one, everything is completely correct to the point where I wonder if there’s a mini reporter in my head relaying that information to their writers. It’s actually kind of creepy.

Anyway, helping you guys makes me happy, so hopefully this is helpful.

In December of 2012, my mother was diagnosed with stage 4 rectal cancer.

The prognosis quickly turned from curable to terminal in a few short months. We’ve been through chemo and radiation, and two different major surgeries, and it’s all taking its toll. My mom hasn’t been able to work for two years, leaving my father to bear the brunt of our medical bills and general living costs. 

To quote my mom:

It’s a little embarrassing to ask, since we are luckier than many: we have health care and I’m pretty sure we’re not in danger of losing our house or anything. But we are definitely struggling due to co-pays, deductibles, the loss of my income, etc. I find myself wondering a lot about people who live in Africa or work at McDonald’s: what do they do when they get cancer? Who takes care of them? So if you’re not inclined to join my fundraiser, perhaps you could pick a cancer organization that helps the truly poor and send them some money.”

Signal boosts would also be extremely appreciated if you can’t donate, as would any help you can give. Thank you very very much.

I wanted to apologize for reblogging this so much, but I really would love to get the word out.
