One of our board gaming brethren, and a positive force to the board gaming cause, Tom Vasel (host of The Dice Tower) has suffered the loss of his infant son, Jack Vasel. I met Tom at Essen briefly, and have worked with him since (he is a part of the documentary), and my heart hurts for him right now.
You can get all the details in the Wired.com article, but the Board Game Geek community is holding a board game auction to help with medical expenses.
Please take a moment to check it out. This is someone who's given a lot to the community, and this is the kind of community that gives back.
