Seeking some assistance for a friend

Oh hi! (Imagine you just walked in on me and I'm sitting at a wooden desk and building a model ship or something. Also, I'm wearing a cable-knit sweater.)
How was your holiday? If you got time off to enjoy it, I mean. If you didn't, how was your same regular work schedule? Same and regular, I'll bet. Geez, I'm sorry about that. Holiday or not, it's Monday and we're all back to our regular routines, so let's not live in the past, all right?
:: SEGUE::
No, instead let's live in the future, where hope is abundant and the possibilities are endless. With that in mind, I'd like to request your help on behalf of a friend and her future. The lovely, charming and talented Marissa Rapier, who has contributed to this very blog in the past, is facing some difficulties right now resultant from that most asshole-ish of all asshole diseases, cancer (FUN FACT: Her old blog's URL is now a porn site and today's entry is titled "Keep Your Tits Quiet" which is kind of amusing in an ironic fashion. I'm not including the link but you can Google it if you're so inclined.). She's recovering now but she's a single mom, obviously missing work and treatment is expensive. If you're able to pitch in, please do so by visiting this site. As always in these cases, anything will help. Thanks in advance if you're able to contribute. It's understood that everybody has their own problems and it's hard sometimes to spare cash on somebody else's behalf. If it helps for the sake of perspective, keep in mind that some people have all those same problems plus, through no fault of their own, they also have cancer dumped on them.
Seriously, cancer needs to fuck off already.
