The Story

Ducky DooLittle is an icon in our world. She is an educator, blogger, and brand rep. Her empathy, activism and ethics are an inspiration for all of us. She is a certified Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention Counselor, a former foster kid fighting for current foster kids to get the sex education they need and deserve, and helps train med students on how to address sexual issues with care and compassion. Ducky is one of my heroes and is respected and adored by everyone who knows her.


//note: after you click "donate now" it takes you to a landing page. you can enter any first and last name you want, it doesn't have to be your legal name. despite it showing credit card icons below the second "donate now" button, you will be directed to Paypal. in order to accept donations internationally, Paypal has been chosen and the funds are going directly, immediately, into Ducky's account//


In September, Ducky was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. In November, she had a hysterectomy. Throughout her diagnosis, surgery, and other treatments, Ducky has been writing about the impact cancer is having on her life — you can read more about her journey here


It’s now December and Ducky is doing better. She even received her first “no evidence of disease” report after surgery! Unfortunately, she’s facing a mountain of medical bills to contend with… and that’s where we come in.


Ducky has done so much for our community. If you are an educator, blogger, podcaster, performer, writer, or sex toy peddler, you’ve very likely been impacted by Ducky’s amazing, fearless work (whether you know it or not). She’s been a rock in our little universe for years, and the sex toy industry and sex education and blogging worlds wouldn’t be the same without her. It’s time for us to show Ducky the compassion she’s gifted our community for years and try our hardest to help her pay her medical bills.

As of February 2018, Ducky owes $9,257 for her cancer treatment. She’s been documenting her bills throughout her treatment process, and you can find that here. Ducky has filed with the insurance company to see if they will change their determination on the biggest bill (over $48,000) - update, they did!! 

We originally planned to try to raise $55,000 for her bills, but the amount is now $9,500 to cover her bills and her Paypal fees for donations. Cancer diagnosis and treatment are difficult enough without the added stress of paying an exorbitant amount of bills. Ducky shouldn’t have to go through this — so we’re hoping that with your help, we can alleviate some of this massive burden.  If Ducky is able to negotiate anything lower with the hospital or insurance company, we’ll lower this goal.  


Thank you in advance for your donations
Love,
The Blog Squad

BILLS DEMOLISHED!!!! 


As we've mentioned before, Ducky has been fighting the health insurance on that $49K bill for her medically-necessary overnight in the hospital and she won! Her total now for bills has drastically improved and so much of it has already been covered, thanks to YOU! 


I'd love to smash the rest of what she owes, so please share and share and share! Any and all donations help.  You can view Ducky's updated blog post on her medical bills total: http://ohilikethis.com/how-much-does-cancer-cost/

THANK YOU. I'm hoping this update reaches those who've already donated! Today, Come As You Are, sex shop extraordinaire in Canada, offered up a thank-you gift to those who've donated already and who will donate: https://twitter.com/ComeAsYouAreCo/status/946407932341526528

Thanks to your donations via Paypal, which reach Ducky immediately, she's started paying off bills. You can keep up with her updates here:http://ohilikethis.com/how-much-does-cancer-cost/ 

If she reduces her $48,000 bill-of-ridiculousness then the fundraiser goal will change. Any amount donated over what she needs to pay her bills will be payid forward by her towards other folxs struggling to pay the healthcare bills that insurance doesn't cover. 

For those who donated Anonymously, whom I cannot thank personally, I hope you see this update and hear my gratitude. Every donation has meant so much. For an update from Ducky, go here: http://ohilikethis.com/2017/12/i-hide-my-tears-but-not-very-well/
