GoFundMe to Aid in Color Artist Justin Ponsor's Cancer Treatment

A GoFundMe page has been set up to aid in cancer treatment of Marvel color artist Justin Ponsor. The colorist, known for contributing to recent titles such as Defenders, Death of WolverineAvengers, and Ultimate Spider-Man, is suffering from cancer which is expected to incur high medical expenses.

Here is what Alex Car, who set up the GoFundMe, says on the page;

Hello friends, I hope you are all doing well.  As you might already know our friend Justin Ponsor is not doing so good right now.  His cancer has taken a dangerous turn and he will likely be dealing with some very expensive medical costs. I thought I would reach out to you in hopes that we can set up a GoFundMe account in his name and raise some money that he can use at his discretion.  Im initially only including this small group of people but we can definitely expand it.  I figure if we get about 500 people and we each contribute $100 that is 50k already (I'm good at math!).

In addition, Mr. Ponsor has set up a blog through which he is documenting the process of treating his cancer.

He is already receiving a lot of support on social media and monetarily on the GoFundMe itself from other industry names like Charles Soule, Cliff Chiang, Jim Cheung, Luke Ross, Matt Banning, Chris Samnee, Ryan Stegman, just to name a few.

It would be nice to say that in the comics niche, we take care of our own. Despite recent turbulence, I still think we can. As such, if you are able to do so, please consider throwing a few dollars at this GoFundMe to help Mr. Justin Ponsor. The goal is $50,000, which is expected, as medical costs can be quite high when it comes to cancer treatment. It's already about halfway to its goal. Let's see if we can make it all the way.
