AMAZING PEOPLE: Ro Nagey

Ro Nagey needs a few things and its time to help her out.

Ro Nagey, long-time supporter of Amazing Stories (we’re still working on her science series here) has started a Go-Fund-Me campaign for some much needed help.

In her own words:

Hi! This is Ro Nagey and I am asking you a big favour. I need your help. Please.

I have been lying about the extent of my disability. I guess I need to be honest.

I am almost at the point of needing a wheelchair to get around. I can barely walk 30 feet and that’s almost always with a three-wheeled Zimmerman frame. I am also bound by debt. I am not just broke but deeply in debt. I’ve been trying to act as if I was ‘normal’ – both in physical and financial health – but I’m not.*

For those of you who saw me at LonCon, I am now someone much weaker. I hate how bad off I’ve become physically.

Recently, I’ve been offered the chance to live in an assisted-living facility. I don’t want to admit it but it’s time for me to move there. And I need your help. I need to get out of debt and also afford the movers so I can live there.

However, I also want to go to Kansas City, MO this August to participate in the 74th Science Fiction Worldcon, MidAmeriCon II. It’s perfect symmetry as I did my very first WorldCon panel at MidAmeriCon I, exactly 40 years ago, where I interviewed John Brunner.

It’s time to help out a fellow fan. Visit, and please donate, today. You can read more about her here.
