Lisle Wilkerson needs the community's help
« on: January 29, 2017, 02:13:59 AM »

The versatile voice of Joy, Xiuying, and Yuan in the English version of Shenmue II needs our help.

Lisle Wilkerson is struggling with a mountain of medical bills for her feline companion, Princess Genki, who has taken ill at a time when resources are thin.

If you'd like to extend a helping hand, please visit for more details.

As you may know, Lisle has been a great friend to her fans for many years, gladly taking the time to give interviews, sign autographs, and promote the campaigns for Shenmue III and Shenmue HD - not to mention the Shenmue Heart of Gold campaign, raising donations for a Japanese cat shelter with Genki herself as Ambassador.

We hope that as a global community we're all able to reward Lisle's kindness, and her bravery for reaching out for help at this stressful time.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the fundraiser for Shenmue II voice actress Lisle Wilkerson, whose beloved pet Princess Genki became ill several weeks ago, requiring many expensive tests, consultations and rounds of treatment from the vet at a lean time of year for finances.

We do unfortunately have some sad news to share, for those yet to see Lisle's most recent update on the GoFundMe page:

"I had to let go of my princess and it is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. But I was told by the doctor that her condition would only get worse. This has been one of the most intense months of my life. It all started exactly a month ago. Still no answers as to what was wrong with her. But I wanted her to leave this world with dignity.
I will still keep the gofundme going, because I have many bills to pay.
To my furry little princess, I love you forever. Thank you."

The generosity and support of the Shenmue community and all the people who care for Lisle and her adorable rescue kitty has been a sight to behold. Bravo to you all. And bravo Genki, for your noble grace and dignity to the very end. Sleep well, Princess.
