Update: Mark is now out of the hospital and doing as well as he can be.
Mark Greyland, aka the son of Marion Zimmer Bradley, needs your help. He’s currently in the hospital; he entered the ICU with diabetic ketoacidosis a few days ago. His doctor had never seen a blood sugar reading that high. Thankfully, he’s been pulling through, though he is still in the hospital.
Here’s what he needs help with:
- Housing in a sane, stable, safe environment within 15 miles of Berkeley, California. He can’t drive due to poor eyesight. He does have funding for this.
Counseling. He’s never had any. This interview is the most he’s ever said about what happened to him.
Help with getting permanent disability. The hospital is working on this in part, but he could very much use some kind of advocate who’d help him.
Any kinds of resources you might be able to think of in the Berkeley area. Frankly, I don’t even know what to ask for.
Your love and affection, kind thoughts, prayers.
Ideally, if there’s some kind of existing charitable foundation that can help, pointers would be amazing.
He simply hasn’t been able to cope with everything going on.
His Space Kitten! shirt has cheered me up quite a few times. I’ve worn it in Ireland and at Worldcon in London and most recently in Gibraltar. His more recent work is here.
