Fundraising for CGC's Brittany McManus – Can You Help?

A medical fund appeal has been launched on GoFundMe to help CGC employee Brittany McManus. The description states,

Brittany McManus is a well known employee of CGC and was in a serious boating accident. Friends, Family, and CGC Enthusiasts all over would like to help with any medical bills not covered by insurance.

Looking to raise $15,000, they currently have topped $4,000. Prominent donors include publishers and collectors such as William Christensen, Steven Shamus, Rick Akers, Sam Finley and many more. CGC dealer Torrey Quella posted on the CGC boards, saying;

Hello everyone, for those of you who don't know me, my name is Torrey Quella. I have been a CGC dealer for a while and have gotten to know a lot of the CGC employees over the years and as many will tell you, Brittany McManus is one of everyone's favorite CGC reps including mine.

Brittany was in a boating accident this weekend and had to have emergency surgery on Saturday. The surgery went well but she will be in the hospital for a few weeks and will need some follow up surgeries. I know everyone will want to get specifics on what happened but for her privacy I am being vague and I'm sure she would appreciate the discretion. People have spoken to Brittany…she is in surprisingly good spirits and her family has already posted pictures of her laughing uncontrollably…for those of you who know her well you will know she's one of the most carefree and good hearted people you know!

I have been in contact with a few boardies, CGC employees, convention directors and others that know Brittany and everyone wants to help. As we all know medical insurance doesn't cover everything so we are going to be putting together a charity auction. Some people are looking to donate specific items and will run an auction or ebay, others said they would like to just donate money, etc. How or what you decide to donate is up to you but anything will help.  We have set up a GoFundMe page for the gifting.

Regulars on the CGC forum have also organized a benefit sale of comics with all proceeds going to Brittany McManus to help with these medical bills.
