If you've got half a million people in range of your soapbox, calling their attention to something they need to see, once in a while, is a Good Thing. Wil Wheaton's wife Anne has written in her blog about a friend who discovered she had leukemia, and is undergoing treatment. Anne and Wil are spearheading a donation drive and walking in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's marathon in San Diego this spring.
Apparently, the donations are really pouring in! I sent a donation and a note, and if you can donate even a buck or two, please do. Anne's friend Kris is among the countless people facing leukemia, and because of fundraisers like this, treatments are more effective, people are living longer, and research continues.
