Author Jeanne Robinson, wife of Spider Robinson, faces a round of chemotherapy for a debilitating form of biliary cancer. To help defray the cost of treatment, a benefit concert for Jeanne has been organized by her friends and members of her Buddhist sangha. The concert (pdf link) will be held September 18, 2009 at Cates Hill Chapel on Bowen Island, Vancouver. Donations can be made through Paypal, and an e-bay auction has been set up as well. Further information is available at Spider Robinson’s website.
