Michael McKay is the creator of the popular webcomic Alice. His nephew Freeman was diagnosed with a rare brain disease, Opsoclonus-Myoclonus Syndrome. Essentially, his immune system is attacking his brain. He is two-and-a-half but he is having to relearn how to walk, eat, talk, everything.
Michael is trying to raise $4,000 to help his sister and brother-in-law with the cost of the drugs, the hospital administration, and the travel required to get Freeman to treatment. He is offering multiple ways to pay and a couple of incentives for donations on a special page at his website.
And yes, Alice came back from hiatus way back in February. (It had been on hold since May 2004). In case you didn’t know.
