About Our Auction
Our dear friend Jen Ozawa bravely battled cancer for many years. She was a beloved friend to the global LOST community since the early days of the show, when she and her husband Ryan hosted one of the very first LOST fan podcasts (The Transmission). Jen passed away earlier this week, peacefully at home with her family. With Ryan's blessing, CGL is hosting this small charity auction. Because so many kind friends and fans have reached out, wanting to help honor Jen in any way they can.
100% to benefit the Breast Cancer Alliance (https://breastcanceralliance.org), every cent raised in this auction will be donated in Jen's honor.
If you're not necessarily interested in bidding on items in this auction but would like to make a contribution in any amount to either the BCA or CGL in Jen's honor, your donation will count toward our final contribution. Please forward us your email receipts so we can include your donation in the grand total (including those that have already kindly made contributions over the last few days). Our email: cancergetslost at gmail dot com. Full transparency: CGL keeps/earns $0 for this and all of our auctions.
Ryan and his family have been posting about Jen on her site, if you'd like to stay updated: https://kilinahe.com.
All of this information is also posted on our site, http://cancergetslost.org.
