Wednesday, September 12, 2012 update: Sadly, we need to update the blog post at this time. Late last night, Wash passed. Our thoughts are with Tashi, who could not have said it better: Wash "stepped into his own TARDIS to start his next adventures." <3
Do these two look familiar?
You may remember Wash and Tashi from our blog post in December. There have also been a lot more posts around the geekosphere about them recently.
There is a reason for that.
The geek community has rallied around Tashi and Wash ever since the news that two of our own were struggling with the reality of terminal brain cancer. It's been inspiring and uplifting to see and to take part in. However that support has become more urgently needed.
We were recently pointed to this Regretsy post which featured a letter from Tashi explaining how Wash's condition has deteriorated, along with a request for a TARDIS-shaped urn.
Our geeky hearts broke.
Based on Tashi's most recent blog post it seems like they already have plenty of TARDIS urn designs to go through. However, we still wanted to help.
Linked in that Regretsy post was a Fundly fundraiser intended to gather money to help Tashi and Wash with all of the expenses that come with end-of-life care. Now, this isn't an official charity and seems to have been started by a caring friend, but we wanted to boost the signal anyway. It's the least we can do.
Tashi, Wash. We're thinking of you.
You're in our hearts. Like the best sort of parasite ever.
