PG Support Network
Right now P.G. Holyfield is being carried by Vivid Muse and her hubby Chooch Schubert. The podcasting community has been asked to send their thoughts, prayers, messages, and open their wallets to put money towards his medical care. Part of the money will offset the medical costs and the rest will go towards caring for his young children in the form of a trust fund.
If you or someone you know has been a cancer survivor or in the fight with cancer, please donate in their name.
If you know PG, please donate. You know why.
If you would like to find out more about this situation and find out what you can do to help, you can read the announcement on PG’s site.
The Story so Far
PG Holyfield has been a podcaster and author of note since his book ‘Murder at Avedon Hill’ won the John W. Polidori Award for Best Vampire Novel of 2010 & the Silver Medal for Fiction – Fantasy at the Foreward 2010 Book of the Year Awards.
He’s gone on to host numerous podcasts, appeared at numerous conventions as a panelist, and mentored many up and coming podcasters. To say that his presence has had a formative effect on New Media would be an understatement.
Within the last month, PG has not only been diagnosed with inoperable, terminal cancer, but he’s been given an incredibly short timeframe by medical staff. With small children, this hits his family even harder than such a shock might under even ‘the best’ circumstances. Whatever that means.
If you can help by donating, please do so. But donations aren’t the only way you can support PG. Send him your warm thoughts via Viv or Chooch. Share the links. Buy the books. At this point, you are giving him piece of mind for his family and letting him know what he means to you.
If you don’t know him, please share in this fight against cancer by doing what you can, in whatever way you can. Fuck cancer.
