Well, now Spider needs something from me. And from you. His wife Jeanne has been suffering from cancer for some time. Rare, nasty cancer. I don't think I have to tell you that in America that means you can go from a fairly comfortable life to shaking a can for nickles down on the corner pretty quickly. Fortunately for Spider and Jeanne they are citizens of a really terrific community - SFF geeks. Scalzi is the one who tipped me off by sending me to the Blog Rally post. I did some research to make sure everything was on the up and up (don't trust everything you read on the internet, right?) and I've found that there are a myriad of ways to help.
