David's Diagnosis

Please help us raise money for our best friend, Jen Muise, and her family this holiday season!!

Jen's younger brother David was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer this past July, the same cancer that their father passed away from 11 years ago this December. David was only 21 years old when he was diagnosed, and just recently celebrated his 22nd birthday on November 7th.

David first presented with stomach pain and loss of appetite, then a few weeks later he lost 10lbs. By the time they diagnosed him his cancer had already reached stage 4 and spread to his liver. After removing the tumor from his colon, David recovered from his surgery and began Chemotherapy.

David's family has been by his side every step of the way, always staying positive and never having concern for its effect on their finances. His sisters take weekly trips from Gloucester to Connecticut so they can be with him as much as possible. His Mom has used up all her vacation days and sick days to be with him day and night in the hospital.

As the holidays approach we wanted to do everything we can to help put their minds at ease. We've heard from so many people that they wish there was something they could do to help and let them know that they're thinking of them during this difficult time, so we created this site.

Please help us in raising money for this family that has been so strong and always stayed so positive through all the tragedy they have faced.

....P.S. Shhhhh! We are trying to keep this a secret so it can be a surprise for the holidays! Feel free to leave a message below, we will show them the site by 12/08, and we will leave it open for Donations until 12/25/2012!
