If you're a fan of women's bodybuilding, you don't need to be told who Melissa Coates is.
She was one of my favorites when she was an active competitor; she's one of the few in the field I actually have somewhat of a personal relationship with, as she and I have exchanged emails and Twitter DMs over the past few years. (The two fan drawings I did of her - posted here at DA - became T-shirts designs, along with a third "Super Genie" design I did especially for her.)
Melissa recently underwent emergency surgery as a result of life-threatening blood clots in her left leg, necessitating amputation of the leg below the knee. More details are here at the GoFundMe campaign to raise money to help her with medical and rehabilitation costs:
