The Story

Back in 2011, I (Mindy McGinnis) joined a group of Young Adult and Middle Grade authors whose books would be debuting in 2013 - The Class of 2k13. We read each others books, celebrated with each other through the highs, and suffered one another?#39;s lows. It was a professional group, but many of our members quickly became friends.

Five years later, I count two of these authors as my closest friends - Demitria Lunetta and Kate Karyus Quinn. Together we have been on trains, planes, cars, and buses. We've shared luggage, hotel rooms, really huge desserts, and are occasionally mistaken for one another in public. We even edited an anthology together, Among the Shadows: 13 Stories of Darkness & Light. 

Last month Demitria was diagnosed with breast cancer, at the age of 35. She is currently going through chemo, to be followed by a mastectomy, and then will receive radiation.

Kate and I started this fundraiser in an effort to help Demitria with her medical bills, as well as transportation costs to and from her treatments. Demitria is also hoping to purchase a laptop so that she can work on her current manuscript while undergoing chemo.

We have now PASSED our goal! Thank you everyone for all of the support. Today, Demitria blogged with an update about her chemo treatments, and shared some of her feelings on the fact that this fundraiser has done so well (ahem, she cried. Just saying). http://demitrialunetta.blogspot.com/2016/12/cancer-update-chemo-edition.html
