Bast has contributed so much to fandom: as a writer of fic and as a publisher of zines (DBA Requiem and DBA Ravenshadow). Now I'm boosting this signal to ask fandom to help Bast. She has had a lot of health issues for some time, and now her mother has cancer. They live in a rural area and they depend on their car to transport them to get health care, and now they need to raise money to fix the brakes on that only car. There's an upcoming cancer surgery for her mom, so they really need to get that car fixed NOW. If you can help at all, please go to this link to contribute: click here to help Bast and her mom.
