Peter David’s Family Provides An Update On The Legendary Comic Creator’s Health Problems

It was five months ago when it was revealed that Comic Book Creator, Peter David, was having serious health issues. Now, David’s wife Kathleen has shared an update regarding her husband’s health and thanked those who have donated to his GoFundMe Fundraiser.

In Late November, Comic Book Writer Peter David suffered multiple strokes and had to be taken to a hospital for treatment. A GoFundMe was launched by his family and friends to help him recover and pay the mounting bills that came with his care. His wife shared a new update on his condition, thanking those who have previously donated.

“Peter is still in Rehab, but that is on a week-to-week basis until the insurance decides that he is well enough to come home. The big hurdle is that he is a two person assist right now.

He is still working at Marvel, but he is on leave right now, so there isn’t any income there to speak of. However, Marvel has been our lifeline. They go to bat for Peter and make sure that he is getting the best care he can, I have been informed that Disney Insurance is considered among the Cadillac Insurances. They check in on us and make sure we’re ok.

The only thing that has saved us from being homeless and hopeless is each of you. Peter cried when he heard what you all have done. It gave him peace of mind so he can focus on healing.


You have made it able for me to put in a ramp and some other things in the house that he needs. You have kept this roof over our heads, food on the table, our cars street-legal, and our cats in food and litter. For that, Peter and | will be eternally grateful, and we thank you every day for it.”
