Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai is in need of help

Comic book creators organizing benefit auction to assist with Sharon Sakai's medical expenses

A legendary comic book creator is in need of help. Can you lend a hand?

Writer/artist Stan Sakai, the prolific creator behind Usagi Yojimbo, is in need of some financial assistance. His wife Sharon has been battling a debilitating illness that has included a long hospital stay and convalescence. She is home now but needs 24-hour care and several costly medications -- more than their insurance covers.

The Cartoon Art Professional Society (CAPS), is organizing a benefit auction to help out Stan and Sharon, asking fellow cartoonists and comic book artists to contribute original artwork to the cause. 100% of the proceeds will go towards the Sakai's ongoing medical expenses.

I'll post a link to the auction as soon as it goes live. If you're not an artist, but would still like to help, you can also contribute a money donation via PayPal, organized by Garage Art Studios.

For more information about Stan Sakai's work, visit the Usagi Yojimbo website. You can also read Stan's heart-wrenching account of Sharon's illness, written earlier this year on Facebook.
