Peggy's Cancer Fight

$30,646 of $25,000 goal

Our dear friend Peggy received some devasting news this week. She has cancer. Last week doctors discovered a mass in Peg's chest, and a biopsy revealed that she has diffuse large B Cell Lymphoma. The good news is that she has treatment options (and let’s not forget that this girl ran a marathon last year…she is STRONG!) but it's going to be a difficult journey.

We are raising money for Peggy's family to manage their basic expenses: food, heat, childcare, mortgage payment, travel costs to the hospital, medical costs, and so on. We need these funds urgently, so in this time of giving, please make a donation today.

Peggy's cancer diagnosis came in the midst of caring for a new baby, a toddler, and her two school age children with the holidays around the corner. Chris is a rock and working hard, Peggy's mom is here to help, and Peggy has so many friends looking out for her--Peggy is surrounded by people who love and support her!

We also have an incredible network of people in our community who come together in times like these to help out those in need of our help. Together we can help this beautiful family through this scary time. So please give as much as you can.

WE DID IT! Thank you to everyone who has donated--near and far--lots or a little. Friends, family, neighbors, and kind folks Peggy has never even met! This fundraising page will remain open so feel free to continue to give and share.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Peggy and the Lyman clan. From all of us.

Almost there. $2,620 to go to reach our goal for Peggy! Please continue to give and share so we can wrap this up by Christmas! (pun intended)

Thank you to the Duckworths for offering the gift certificates (they are all spoken for). We have a new offer on the table for TODAY ONLY: the lovely Amanda Cook will donate all the sales of her Salty Yarn and Itty Bitty Earrings to our campaign. So take yourself down to Present at 120 Main Street and do your last minute shopping today!
