Karen needs our help!

After battling breast cancer in 2016/2017, Karen found a new lump early this year. So she began the process of treatment again — a mastectomy, chemo and estrogen therapy. While she is being very well cared for, this experience is quite challenging for body and spirit.

So many folks have been sending her love in all forms, all of which has been deeply felt and appreciated. And if you're able, giving donations through this site would also be incredibly helpful.

Hospital bills are piling up, and additional treatments to support Karen's well-being through this process (like acupuncture and massage) are also adding up. She could use our help.

Thank you for any support you can offer.
