Katherine Ludwig

Estimated reading time: 3 minute(s)

Last week, Zig posted info on my Facebook page about Katherine Ludwig, the face and voice of Metal Maniacs, who is now battling Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. I was shocked and saddened (but not entirely surprised) to find out that, on her own, she didn’t have all the resources she needed for her fight. Friends, colleagues, and metalheads the world over have risen to her aid, and now I’m asking you to give back a little, to someone who has had such a profound influence on the entire metal community.

If you want to do your part, you’ve got a couple of options. You can donate to the YouCaring medical fundraiser set up in Katherine’s name. You can visit the Facebook page dedicated to Katherine’s progress. And you can pass the word along to others you know.

Special thanks to Alicia Morgan, Katherine’s friend and former assistant and editor at Metal Maniacs, for leading the charge, and for setting up the YouCaring fund and Facebook page.
