If you read this blog and you are coming from the science fiction and fantasy side of things, you probably already know that Jay Lake, a well-known science fiction author, has been battling cancer for several years. Donnie Reynolds of Waterloo Productions has been filming a documentary on Jay’s struggle, and has just launched a Kickstarter to raise funds to finish the project.

Jay’s story is not an easy one. He’s been forthright about his cancer, which has been robbing him of time and energy and health for years. Waterloo takes an unflinching look at his life and the lives of his family, especially his daughter, Bronwyn. This film is almost as much about her as it is about Jay.

Here’s more information.
