The Story

Erin Mitchell, friend and advocate of the crime fiction community, has been diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy. In other words, her heart is just too big and too fragile. She's self-insured and the cost of her care is mounting quickly. Funds donated here will offset her bills at Brigham & Women's Hospital, and help pay for her to get insurance coverage. Join us to make sure she gets the best care possible, and keep her on our side for years to come.

THANK YOU to everyone who's made a donation, passed the word and/or held a good thought for Erin. It's amazing that we've been able to do so much in the first week of fundraising. Erin is in Boston today for a test that's going to cost twice as much as the hospital had originally told her, and now we're wishing we'd set our goal higher. The good news is that we can keep this fundraiser going far past the original goal. Enrollment for health insurance happens next month, and coverage will start in December. Between now and then, every little bit helps. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
