Emru Townsend is fighting for his life, and here's how we can help him. Emru's been diagnosed with leukemia and a condition known as monosomy 7. What this means is he needs a bone-marrow transplant in order to live. He and his family are actively seeking a donor match and their website is smart, with good explanations and great info about how to help Emru, and anyone else who may be in a similar situation. Tamu Townsend, Emru's sister, is one of the committee folks for Montreal's 2009 Worldcon, and Emru is a noted animation and technology writer, as well as the founding editor of Frames Per Second Magazine.
