    Lance is a Security Guard and Carla manages a Comic book store. I know Lance better than I know his wife and I've actually grappled with Lance a few times over the years and he has always been really cool. But, both are delightful people, and those of you who know me, I hardly ever have anything nice to say about people and usually, no matter the circumstances someone's going through, I always find something about them that I don't like. These two are actually really good people.

    They're both in a chemically induced coma and don't know that they've not only lost 1/3 of the skin off their bodies because of burns, but also that they've lost their home, and all of their belongings.

    My friend has set up a donation fund to help them out, If you feel like donating anything, anything at all, that would be so much help. This is the donation link to the paypal donation fund, go to http://sbmartialarts.com and on the front page in the bottom right hand corner, there's a news section with a donate button on it.

    If you have any clothes you want to donate, Lance is 6'4" 240lbs, and Karla is 5'5" 110lbs. Contact Mike at http://sbmartialarts.com/contact.html or email him at: [email protected] for personal shipping stuff.

    Ouch. It's never good with burns.

    What the hell happened? Car accident or house fire?

    They lived in the hills where the fires first started.

    They were one of the first few victims of the fire. They were running out of their house to their car to get out when they got the evac notice when a gust of wind basically showered them with a wall of fire. Conflicting reports say that he either pulled his wife into the car or she got there under her own power and collapsed, but either way, Lance drove about 10 miles to a fire station and then passed out there even with all of his burns.

    Fucking crazy.

    Clothes would be easy for me. He's a bit bigger but probably same shoulder size. I have a lot of decent stuff I just don't wear.

    Tough break, burning is one of my huge fears :hsd:

    If I wasn't so broke I'd chip in. For now, I'll just have to give my best wishes and hope they pull through.
