Journalism generosity

As I wrote in my personal blog:

Steve Coddington is a photojournalist for The St. Petersburg Times. He’s fighting CIGNA to get appropriate care for his wife, who had a subarachnoid hemorrhage. CIGNA, of course, is foiling him in every way, and now Coddington’s wife is getting no care. He’s on leave, taking care of his wife and children. Their money is running out.

If you have the ability to donate or to pass his story on, please go to

As of now, with the generosity of so many people, they seem to have raised more than $13,000, which came at the perfect time. Steve and Marian’s son is in the hospital preparing for kidney surgery. Donations allowed Steve to be by his bedside, work two days a week and to have help at home.

Keep up the good work!
