This is six kinds of awesome. Laurie Marks is a sci-fi author, and her wife, Deb Mensinger, needs a liver transplant. To help raise money, they're having an online fannish auction through a LiveJournal community aptly named debsliverlovers. It runs through May 23, and they're still accepting both bids and donations of items and/or services.
I don't know them personally, but they've been supportive of Gaylaxicon and the Spectrums in the past, so I'm putting this out to there to anyone who might be so inclined to support them and get some unique stuff in the process.
