Polly Holland Smith (Holland, O'Toole) needs help with her many medical related costs for breaks, pain, vision and dental problems and COPD.

So many of you know my mom, in person or through my chapbook Betty Superman, and she has, over the years, done so much for so many. Superman adventures aside, she's always slipped a friend a twenty or more, bailed people out (sometimes jail, sometimes other problems) She's never asked for a cent back for any "loans." Now, she has a very bad case of COPD, a fractured lung and fractured back. One lung has been partially collapsed. She is not a surgical candidate and just have to suffer with the pain. Maybe she did your hair. Maybe you laughed at the book, but if even half the people she's touched would donate just five dollars, we'd be so much closer to getting her some of the care she needs: assisted living would help so much with the depression of her illness. She has trouble seeing and needs to go to the eye doctor, and her teeth have just started to fall out. Maybe she would eat something (she eats almost nothing now) if she had new teeth. Anything will help...
