The Vegan Zombie is raising money for fellow vegan/vegan zombie actor (!) Corey Welling, who is desperately in need of a double lung transplant to live (he hasĀ Cystic Fibrosis).

If you have some extra money burning a hole in your richie rich pockets, or even if it might be a difficult to give away a little of what the small amount you have, maybe you can throw some money their way? It sucks, some of us are just dealt shittier health decks in life, and now is not a good time to be an American with a shitty health deck (hopefully soon it will be better!), so please help a vegan in need, if you can!!

From the ChipIn site:

Hey Gang! We normally don’t like asking for favors, but this is a huge deal to us. Corey, is one of our closest friends and he needs our help. He is one of the most compassionate people I’ve ever met, and he has introduced me to the owners of several animal sanctuaries. Let me fill you in on what’s going on…

Corey has Cystic Fibrosis (CF), a lung disease. He was diagnosed at 6 months old and his life expectancy was only 8 years. Throughout the years, advances in technology and medicine have made it possible for people like Corey to beat the odds, and make it a lot further in life. He is now 27 years old…However, he was told by his doctors five months ago that he is now at the end stage of his disease. He needs a double lung transplant in order to live. He will be having his transplant in NYC. Insurance will cover some, but not all of the costs. The estimated cost for everything is around $100,000.
Our goal is to try to ease the financial pressure for Corey and his family once the operation takes place. It would mean the world to Chris and I if you can help us raise this money! His family put together a benefit for him in November, and I would love to hand them a check from The Vegan Zombie for $20,000!!!
