Joshua Lipana is one of the assistant editors for The Objective Standard blog, and a hard-working advocate for reason and free markets.
Unfortunately, he was recently diagnosed at age 20 with cancer (specifically, a T-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma).
TOS editor Craig Biddle has spearheaded an online fundraiser to help Joshua and his family cover some of the medical expenses. Diana and I have already contributed, but we’d like to spread the word.
Craig has a nice update on Joshua’s condition in this August 6, 2012 post, “Help Joshua Lipana Fight Cancer—Update“. Craig discusses how he met Joshua, highlights some of his many achievements, and tells us a little bit more about his background.
Basically, the treatments seem to be working. But he needs our help. Craig notes:
To date we’ve raised $13,642 (that’s $2,000 more than GoFundMe shows because one couple generously made a direct donation of $2,000 to Joshua’s PayPal account). But we still have a long way to go to reach our goal of $25,000.
If you’d like to donate, you can do so through this GoFundMe page.
You can also donate via PayPal to joshualipana (atsign) yahoo (dot) com.
Or if you’d prefer to mail a check, please make it out to “The Objective Standard” and write on the Memo line: “Donation for Joshua” and send it to:
The Objective Standard P.O. Box 5274 Glen Allen, VA 23058
Thank you for helping out in this good cause for a good man.
