Alex Crushing Cancer

As some of you may know our friend, Alex Turchioe Babcock, was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. Alex is currently living in Portland, Maine with her husband, Ryan, and together they have begun the difficult journey to find the best medical treatment available for Alex at this stage in her diagnosis. 

This journey is no doubt going to be a difficult one both physically and mentally, but also financially. Alex will continue to work when she can, as will Ryan. She will begin chemo soon and the road from there is uncertain right now. Unfortunately, the cancer has spread too far for the option of surgery or radiation.

These are two of the most loving, kind and thoughtful people we know. They would do anything to help someone in need and now they need our help. We want to make sure they can focus on getting Alex the best care possible without the added stress of how they are going to pay the many direct and indirect expenses of fighting cancer. This is going to be a long journey, but we know that with our help Alex will be able to crush cancer.

If you are able to donate or contribute in any way it would be making a direct impact on helping Alex get the best care possible.

We love you Alex! You got this!!!
