Hello Everyone,

This is it. CORPUS has less than 12 hours to go, and I wanted to take this time to thank you all for helping CORPUS get funded. We couldn't have done it without you. When the clock strikes midnight tonight, we'll begin working on getting you CORPUS in your hands. If you haven't pledged or there's some reward you weren't sure about, this is your last chance! For anything you were able to give, it's filled my heart. You've changed a life and helped some enormously talented people tell their stories. See you on the other side.

Halfway Through our Campaign!

Hello Everybody!

Thanks to you, it's been an amazing 14 days. We've officially reached the halfway point of our campaign! We've done so much, but we still have so much further to go. Please continue all your hard work in spreading the word and telling your friends, family, pets, and accountants about CORPUS. I've received so many heartfelt messages from people who are so excited at the prospect of having their experiences shared, and its with your help that we can make the message of CORPUS a reality. Please help us as we enter the end-stage of the campaign. We're in this together, and fyi, I've got some great stretch goals planned...

Thank you all!

Hello Backers!

Well, CORPUS has finally made its debut to Kickstarter. I want to thank you all for your support. You are taking the steps to fill the gap when it comes to narratives about illness, disabilities, and healthcare. When I opened submissions to CORPUS, I received over 200 emails. This showed me that the message of CORPUS is so much more than this book itself. By supporting this project, you are voting with your wallet for more representation in media. I am so appreciative of your donations. 

While we had a fantastic, bombastic first day, the donations have started to massively slump. The road is far from over, and we still need tons of support. Please tell your friends, your family, your dentist, your pets, anyone you know who might be interested in this! 

Thank you so much, and from here on out, onwards and upwards!
