A Podcastathon for Tawny Platis
Tawny & her husband George were inseparable. They shared six years and just about every waking second they could together. Tawny & George were building a career in podcasting. They spent night after night working on their show The Dirty Bits, Tawny as the voice artist and George as the audio engineer. They knew they were soulmates - and it was evident to anyone who spent time with the couple.
While many of their memories are happy, George and Tawny’s relationship was plagued by an onslaught of health issues.
George was born with a single ventricle cardiac anatomy. He also had low function cilia which caused him severe respiratory issues. Many of Tawny's & George’s evenings were spent with the doctors at UCLA Jolla, Sharp Grossmont, and Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego.
On November 8th, 2019 George lost his difficult battle with his body and Tawny lost her soulmate. The next few months for Tawny were filled with grief, devastation, and pain. Coupled with the effects of the Coronavirus, Tawny has been more isolated than ever. In addition to the grief, she is also left with an estimated $60,000 in medical debt and has been struggling to support herself with one income.
And so, we're hosting a podcastathon to help raise money to support Tawny in the wake of this tragedy.
