The 'Annoyed Gamer' could use our help!

A quick post to share a link, and some hopeful wishes to the one and only 'Annoyed Gamer', Marcus Beer...
Marcus and Shawna's Give forward page

The following comes from the Give Forward page:

Marcus Beer has been a colleague, friend, and influence for so many of us in the video game industry for more than two decades. Equal parts intelligent, insightful, funny, and caring, Marcus could pull out his "Annoyed Gamer" persona to share a scathing commentary on an issue as easily as he could reach out to help a friend or colleague who needed help.

On January 28th, Marcus suffered a heart attack and was placed in a medically induced coma. At the same time, he and his wife, Shawna, continue to foster a baby; something they began doing last year. With Marcus in the hospital and unable to work or help, and Shawna caring for the baby, they could really use some help with funds for medical bills to help them get through this difficult time. We're asking for folks to consider donating money to help with medical and baby expenses as well as meals. Whatever you can do to help would be greatly appreciated by all of us that know and love Marcus and Shawna.

Honestly, more than anything, I hope for a speedy recovery for Marcus. No, I haven't met him, but He's been a kindred spirit, and described, even by my fellow Blast Processing guys, as my evil twin.

Here's to you Mr. Beer!
