OBERLIN SISTERS CONQUER CANCER

Sister Dina: Kristin needs your help. This money will be used for medical bills and travel to treatment facilities.

Sister Kristin: Thank you for visiting our page. Dina and I met at Oberlin College and now, things have gotten surreal. And she's stepped up to help me. I live in Vancouver, Canada, and I have advanced breast cancer. Women are not screened for breast cancer prior to 40, and I just turned 40. This was my birthday present.

Sad story. I know, I'm sad too. BUT if you want to help me, let's raise the money. I want to be able regularly to see a naturopath, acupuncturist, and, especially, a nutritionist, to supplement traditional medicine. Also, there are costly cancer medications. But these various things are not covered by Canadian public health insurance. And I can't afford it.

Please help us fundraise to meet these costs, please donate what you can. We are all sisters and brothers. We need to help eachother. That sounds so trite but it's true. I love you. Thank you.

UPDATE: APRIL 7, 2014, FROM SIMONE, KRISTIN'S DAUGHTER, AND WILLOW THE KITTEN:
