That Best Portion: A zine for Grant

That best portion of a good man's life,
His little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.
William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850)

We've put together a multifandom zine to benefit Susan who faces a situation many of us have faced or will face within our family at some point. Due to her husband, Grant's cancer and treatment (with no insurance to fall back on), this fan and her family face medical bills far above their ability to pay. As many of us know, it's difficult enough dealing with illness without the added stress of knowing bills are piling up and the means to pay them just isn't there.
