Hi there! My name is Zack, and I'm starting this GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for my partner Liz Atkinson. At just 30 years old, Liz was recently diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer. After noticing some lingering pain in her left breast, Liz's doctor suggested a mammogram. The mammogram and biopsy results came back positive for cancer in Liz's right breast. While we are happy the cancer was discvovered early and is treatable, life-altering surgery, radiation and hormone therapy will affect Liz for the rest of her life. For everyone in Liz's orbit, whether in a chance meeting, decades-long friendships or workplace relationships, Liz has always lifted those around her. A contagious smile, infectious laughter, a fantastic hug and attentive ears are all traits Liz carries with her in her personal and professional life. Liz's strength throughout this entire process so far has been astonishing. Liz is focused on recovery and kicking some cancer butt! Having worked backstage in the music industry for a decade, the most challenging part for Liz thus far has been the fact she has to stay home for treatment and cannot be around her touring family! Loss of income, out-of-pocket medical bills, after care costs and living expenses should be the absolute LAST thing on Liz's mind, taking up time and energy. Now is the time for all of US to Lift Up Liz!!! I'd love for you to donate if you can and share this campaign with your friends and family, especially young women. Early cancer detection is paramount to treatment. If just one person reads this and has an opportunity for early cancer detection, the campaign will be a success. We can all help to LIFT UP LIZ!!! Let's help the gal who always helps us!!! So, make a donation, spread the word, send us vibes and get checked up often. One of the many cool things about GoFundMe is that a little goes a long way. Liz will have access to any funds regardless of how much is raised. We thank you all!
