Here’s how you can help Lashonda Lester’s family

When beloved Austin comic Lashonda Lester died last week, she left behind a husband, Dana, and son, Alex, and a comedy community that is still reeling from the loss.

While there was a GoFundMe set up in 2015 to help Lester with her medical bills, “Mr. Alex,” as he is known to Lester’s fellow comics, has special needs and a separate GoFundMe has been set up to help with his care and the remaining medical bills.
