Hey, you guys. While we're on the topic of the ACA, I need your help. Full disclosure: this ends with an ask for money.

My sister and I share a genetic blood clotting disorder. While I've been lucky, she has not. She had her first stroke at the age of 25.

She had to drop out of college. She had to learn to read again. She continues to have mobility problems, memory issues, and poor vision.

She lives in her own apartment in an assisted living community; being independent is important to her. But she can't live completely alone.

She had a therapy cat, which is totally a thing, and I hated that stupid cat. But then the cat died of a brain tumor. Now she's alone.

She's got an adorable puppy being trained as a companion. But Medicare won't cover the expense of a service animal. And it's significant.

So here's the ask: would you please throw in a few bucks to help us pay for her service dog? I'll tweet puppy pics.

I know everyone's exhausted from the holidays, and your wallets are probably a little light. But we have four days to come up with $3000.

That's not remotely the whole cost, but that's our upcoming deadline for the trainer. The dog will go to someone else if we can't meet it.

I'd say "I'll do it!" in honor of the Scafe, except it'd be wrong. So... I did it!

I wish it could be more but her expenses were a lot in the last month. But it’s something

By the way, let me introduce you to Percy Jackson, the most expensive puppy in the world. I did not name him.

Just so we're clear, I would have named him Brian or something.
