L.A. Banks Battling Cancer

Novelist L.A. Banks has been diagnosed with late stage adrenal cancer. Her family and friends have established a fund to help the author cope with growing medical bills.

Follow this link to donate. Leslie Esdaile has written many novels under different pseudonyms, but wrote her most well-known books (Vampire Huntress Legend series and the Crimson Moon series) under the name of L.A. Banks.

Here’s more from the donation page: “Leslie needs all of her energy in this fight, she is absolutely not able to receive visitors, answer emails, texts or phone calls, or receive flowers. What she is able to receive is your continued prayers. Also, Leslie’s medical expenses are mounting at an astronomical rate. If you wish to assist Leslie, a fund has been established to help with these ever increasing expenses.” (Via Smart Bitches and Sarah Weinman)
