Help Jim Hardiman!
An urgent email went out today to Rabbit Valley Books customers regarding Jim Hardiman's medical emergency: complications surrounding his diabetes are causing problems that, without surgery, threaten blindness. Instructions on how to help follow...From Sean Rabbitt:
We have some very important news regarding the health of one of our artists, Jim Hardiman (Skunkworks, Bigger Than Life, and many other portfolios and comics). Jim's doctor has determined that he must have eye surgery to correct a problem caused by his diabetes. Without it, Jim may possibly go blind.
Being a self employed artist, Jim has no medical coverage and needs as much financial support as possible.
We presently owe Jim thousands of dollars, but because of the lawsuit, we arranged to pay him over time. We have no more money to send him the full amount owed right now as RABCO still needs money for basic expenses, rent, electricity, etc. Thus, we're asking for help.
If you would like to help Jim directly, any financial support would be appreciated. This is, of course, not a tax deductible donation or anything, just a gift. Please send a check or money order made out to "James Hardiman" to:
C/O Rabbit Valley Comics
PO Box 540568
Waltham, MA 02454-0568
Alternatively, and if you would like to get something for your money, please consider purchasing a portfolio or print from Jim's collections. We will be adding many more prints on Friday and Saturday.
