Shawna's Medical Fund

Our dear friend Shawna has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer called Glioblastoma.

She is currently recovering from brain surgery and will be starting an intensive radiation and chemo treatment soon.

Shawna has mantained an incredibly positive perspective and is confident she can get through this. Also, her friends and family have been providing an amazingly strong support system.

But more help is needed! Medical and living expenses are mounting, and she needs your assitance. Please donate however much you can.
