The Smug Film Blog & Podcast is Now on Hiatus

We love doing the blog and the podcast, but unfortunately, we have to take a hiatus for the time being.

Back in January, my mom was diagnosed, out of the blue, with Stage 4 breast cancer. It’s in her breast, lung, liver, brain, and bone. She’s undergone chemotherapy and radiation since then, but has reached a point now where she feels she’s had about as much treatment as she can handle, and wants to just rest and pass peacefully.

My family and I have been taking care of her since she was diagnosed, and she has wonderful doctors and nurses. Insurance covers some of the costs but there are always out-of-pocket costs. We started up a Fundraiser a few days ago to help cover these:

I owe my entire love of film, and so much more, to my mom. She’s the best person I’ve ever known, and my best friend. And now I just need to be with her has much as possible during her final days. Recording the podcast was my weekly break from caretaking, but I can’t do that anymore. I just need to be with her.

If you would like to donate to the fundraiser, any amount helps, even if all you can spare is a dollar. But above all else, just keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
