diSiac Dances Back! Support for our Sara Guenther '15

One of our own, Sara Guenther, (Princeton/diSiac Dance Company member '15) was recently diagnosed with cancer.  Sara is such a phenomenal young woman. Not only is she brilliant (she majored in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering), but she is an amazing dancer as well, and those of us who have been lucky enough to share the stage and study rooms with her can honestly attest to how gifted, kind, humble and beautiful a person she really is. 

We wanted to do something to help out Sara, and so we have decided to hold a series of dance workshops in NYC in her honor, and we have also set up this GoFundMe page for additional donations. All earnings from the workshops and all donations from this page will go directly to Sara's family .

Details pertaining to the workshops will be posted to this page and through Facebook in the coming days, so please stay tuned and get ready to dance around for our beloved Sara! 

Please donate whatever you can to help out this truly lovely human being as she fights back against cancer.

We love you Sara!
APHROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Hey everyone,

After reaching and passing our campaign goal of $1,500 (we hit $1,884), we stopped donations on this GoFundMe.

However, it has come to my attention that people are still interested in donating here to support Sara's family. That being said, we are going to turn donations back on for this campaign, and it will stay open for the remainder of this week.

As well, Sara's family has indicated that in lieu of sending flowers, they would appreciate support for the below organizations:

Dear Jack Foundation (in honor of Sara Guenther):
http://www.dearjackfoundation.org


MD Anderson Cancer Center (in honor of Sara Guenther):

Please continue to keep Sara's family in your thoughts and prayers during this time.

Sara, we love you, and we are with you. Always.

Hey there everyone! I just wanted to sincerely thank you all so very much for being a part of this fundraiser/workshop series over the past few months. Your great warmth and energy, your generosity, your fun spirits and enthusiasm helped to bring positive light to our lovely Sara during such a scary time.
Further, we've just had our last class in this fundraiser, and we've reached our donations goal you guys!!! But, if you would still like to donate to the GoFundMe, please do so by the end of the day today (8/5/16), as we are going to update Sara's family on the GoFundMe and close the campaign so that they can use the funds.

Sara, we love you, and we are with you.
