Like many others said, get our pledges, Xin's or a real sunset by a beach, your time and all you need for taking care of you both and taking down Linda's evil crab. I have not much to add, although being a cancer researcher myself, many things come in thoughts, but I trust the medical team, your medical team, to do it's best for Linda.
Good mood, family & friends support and a combative spirit also help a lot, and here we are with you Linda, and as a great "family" of what?! 4 ou 5 thousands?! we won't let cancer win!
Rise up, dwagons, spidews, gobwins, marbits, all kind of 'mancers (healomancers most welcome)... and together go fight that treacherous monster (a cancer is a bit like when your cells go Charlie)!
All my hope, my support and my thoughts, really, you're doing a great job!

    I'm not sure if a dittomancy tool's opinion will count, but I felt it worth trying anyway.

    I joined the toolbox and added my pledge today because I wanted to contribute, not to secure the milestone. This is some of the hardest stuff to live with and deal with there is. I want to make dealing with it a tiny bit easier, not harder. I hope my pledge helps - I don't expect anything back from it.

    Agreed with all that. Don't worry about the milestones. I hope Rob and Linda take the time they need for each other, in whatever form that takes, and that our increased pledges can help them do that, starting now. Other dreams for the site can wait, for years if necessary.

    Bah, Humbug!

    What are all you goody goodies talking about? Didn't you ever watch Great Expectations? What about Tiny Tim? Wasn't that whole situation horrible? Child Labor Laws didn't exist then. What was Tiny Tim doing moping about at home when he could limp around the coal mines and actually be useful to someone. Such an opportunity lost forever brings a tear to my eye!

    And here I understand Linda has kids too. Put em to work I say. Break their legs if you have to get them to concentrate. Heck, they might be able to apply for welfare and head-of-line privileges. They should be grateful!

    --

    Anyway, I've said before I never considered my pledge to be a for-the-comic thing. So, yea, not worried about the milestones or the on-timeness of the updates. Just make it a per-update thing and don't sweat the small stuff. Deadlines are useful, but they shouldn't ruin the reason you work in the first place.

    Sorry to keep you on the hook like that, Xin. I just feel that strongly about the subject.


    Be sure to have Linda in that picture as well.

    I've been reading since the days on Giantitp and pledged today (sorry for not doing it sooner) so that I can help "Team Erf" in a tiny way to get through this. If there was a way to just pledge unconditionally, I'd be ticking that box too.

    Thanks Linda and Rob for being so open with this scary and personal news. Your priorities sound spot on. Hearing your news helps us all to remember to make the most of each day.

    Woot! Toolshed just hit $3000 per update. <3 @Team Erf - if any of you see this post, I respectfully request that you consider ring-fencing the $$ from the extra recent pledges since Friday 4/7 ($3000-$2200=$800) for the next 10 updates ($800x10=$8000) to go to the annual maximum out of pocket deductible healthcare costs Rob mentioned in his update note.

    It's your business, so y'all have to decide how to run it. I'm positive that some of the new income should eventually go to all the extra work the art team and dev team will have to do to keep Erf living, breathing, and evolving outside of the "LESS" story updates. But STRESS is a terrible thing, and tends to amplify terrible health situations. It would be really nice for Team Balder to not have to worry about the medical expense stress on top of the crappy health situation itself. One month deferred on whatever agreement you have tied to Toolshed income is not much compared to keeping Rob and Linda feeling as loved and unburdened as the situation allows. And (IMO) Rob is too ethical/humble/independent a guy to ask for this himself. :D

    (And, BTW, based on the last update "LESS" is still REALLY awesome - there's no noticeable difference in quality, IMO)

    I wasn't a paying subscriber until today. Now I am. I took Rob's invitation to decrease pledges to account for smaller updates, and started pledging, because I want smaller updates. I want Rob to have as much time as he can to take care of Linda, or just to spend with her if it turns out that "taking care of her" is unrealistic. I've lost family members to cancer and other sickness, and every time my one regret was that I didn't have more time to spend with them.

    I don't care about toys or postcards or any of that other stuff listed in the milestones. I'd like to continue seeing comic updates at least once in a while, because I think they're something that Rob and Linda can still enjoy doing together. But if that turns out not to be true, then that's just too bad for me and I'll find some other way to support them through this difficult time.

    Boop cancer. Seriously.


    Echo ALL of the above :!:

    +1. I'm not the most active person on the site or forums, heck i think this is actually my first post, but I honestly can't express how much this comic and the team that creates it means to me.

    Erfworld and its community have gotten me through some of the toughest times in my life. The comic and the fan stories have made me smile and laugh when the rest of the world turned gray and bleak. Waiting for the new page at one point was the only thing that kept me going.

    Rob, Linda, Xin and the rest of the Erfworld team have done more for me then they'll ever know and if I can give back and help in some small way at all, then I'm happy to.

    I for one have been reading this wonderful story for several years now and have only just been inspired to Become a tool. My pledge was
    /Is meant to help Rob and Linda help battle their current foe. Cancer sucks and needs to be curb stomped out of existence in no uncertain ways.

    I am in no hurry to unlock anything at the moment and my Support is for the main villain they face. I don't expect one extra second of time to be pulled from that battle.

    I speak from experience from faimly who fought this devil and failed. Give it no mercy and do what is needed to be done. My support is with you.
