Family of Star Wars/Deadpool Artist Nicole ‘Nik’ Virella Raising Money for Operation

Posted by March 19, 2018 Comment

Nicole ‘Nik’ Virella is the comic book artist working on comics including Hyperion, 1872, Deadpool, All-New Wolverine, GI Joe and Star Wars: Poe Dameron.

She is suffering from debilitating chronic fatigue and severe pain due to Endometriosis and PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and needs surgical intervention by an Endo-specialist.

To that end, her sister Angelique has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $40,000 towards the costs of an operation. She has been battling with her health insurance company to pre-approve the cost without joy.

Donors so far include Deadpool writer Gerry Duggan, All-New Wolverine writer Tom Taylor, as well as well as Bill Sienkiewicz, Matthew Rosenberg, Amy Chu, Kelly Thompson, Greg Pak, Jamal Igle, Joseph Illidge, and more. And a number promoted the appeal on their social media as well.
