I encourage you to read below, the story of Olivia Daniels and her mother and the heart
wrenching tragedy that no family deserves.
We Are Borg
Head of PR and Marketing
Bay Area Brony Spectacular Convention
Meet Cheryl Daniels. She is the mother of Olivia Daniels, more commonly known as Obsidian
Winter in our quaint fandom.
You may know Olivia as the former head of Events and Programming for BronyCon 2013. She
serves in the same capacity to us here at BABSCon 2014, to which she's brought her unique
brand of wisdom and skill, should you be attending. She’s a passionate member of this fandom
and, like us, she has worked to make the fandom the exciting and dynamic place we’ve all come
But most importantly, she’s our friend. And she needs help…our help.
Not two days ago, Cheryl Daniels was admitted to St. Thomas Midtown Hospital in Nashville, TN,
suffering from acute liver failure brought on by Hepatitis C, which she originally contracted via a
blood transfusion. Currently unable to eat or drink normally, she requires infusion of fluid and
nutrients from expensive IV “banana bags,” as she holds out for a liver transplant. She's also in
immediate danger of losing both her home and her car.
A widow since 2000, Cheryl has worked 2, sometimes, 3 jobs to support her children and
grandchildren. She has always been there for the family, enabling her husband to pursue his
dreams while he was alive, supporting her kids’ education, and being a loving grandparent. The
money she was making at her current job was not enough to allow her to afford health insurance
premiums, but too much to allow her to qualify for Tennessee's State assistance programs.
Now, with her mother in this dire condition, the responsibility has fallen to Olivia. Olivia, however,
is currently on disability due to a workrelated back injury in early November that crushed two
disks in her spine. She’s also raising two children of her own, Anya & Serenity. Her sister,
Wendy, is unable to assist due to her own diabetesrelated health problems, and caring for her
two adult autistic children.
Dealing with the prospect of losing her remaining parent and facing an impending foreclosure on
her mother’s home and repossession of her mother’s car, Olivia needs help.
To be precise, she needs $10,000 worth of help to confront immediate costs. $3,500 will go to
pay for IV nutrition to help sustain her mother. The rest will go to cover the most immediate
outstanding accounts of her mother’s mortgage and car payments, so that as soon as possible,
Olivia can move in and take over the mortgage payments and her mother’s inhome care.
But, again, this money only addresses the most immediate needs. It does nothing for Cheryl's
hospital bills, and ongoing IV nutrition and liver medications needed are going to continue being a
burden, so more will be necessary over time.
If you can help, even a little bit, please consider donating. Every cent will go to helping Olivia
stabilize her mother’s health and pay her debts. Hopefully, this will help get their family get back
on their feet. If you’re not in a position to donate, you can still help by sharing this with your
friends. The more people see this, the more likely some of them can pitch in.
