- Please help fund for Oliver Nome's surgery!
This article below is taken straight from Indiegogo:
Here is his page on ComicBookRealm:
Help Oliver Nome.
Oliver Nome is an artist for Aspen, DC, Marvel comics who has recently been diagnosed with a golf ball sized tumor in his brain. Oliver is a freelance artist, does not have health insurance and the procedure to remove the tumor will be very expensive.
My name is Michael Alexandropoulos and I represent Oliver for his art sales. Oliver is one of the best people that I know and I love him like a brother.
The purpose of this campaign is to attempt to alleviate some of the financial pressures that will come with having the surgery.
Your help during this campaign will help Oliver pay down some of the expected medical bills, keep up with current financial commitments, and allow him some time to recover properly without that financial burden hanging over him.
What We Need & What You Get
While the anticipated cost of this surgery is between $45,000 and $60,000, we are setting the goal for this campaign at $20,000. We hope to of course raise enough money to cover all of his surgical and hospital care.
What you get, well you get artwork, prints created by Oliver and some of his friends. Each and every penny raised from this campaign will go towards paying his medical and personal bills during his recovery.
You help out an amazing human being and our undying thanks.
