Bronies for Good is supporting an artist who is suffering from cancer but can’t afford medication or chemotherapy. Karine Coenen details in her DeviantArt journal how, despite universal healthcare in Belgium, her insurer seems to be able to legally withhold treatment for her just because she is behind on her payments. Employers reject her because of her disease, and she can’t expect any help from her abusive family.
She is an amazingly gifted artist and enjoys drawing ponies, so go and commission her like mad, or help her in any other way you can. She really needs the money to survive.
Update 2012-02-28 13:04Z: Karine Coenen has created a dedicated page with detailed biographical information and a plethora of photos to show that her condition is real. There is also a new Derpy picture by her, which I added below.
