I am sponsoring this page to ask you to help me raise money for cancer treatment for my dear and longtime friend, Arden Brink. Arden and I have shared many adventures together, including serving as crew mates aboard ELISSA in the New York tall ship parade that sailed around the Statue of Liberty in 1986. Arden was recently diagnosed with colon cancer, which is very aggressive. She needs all the tools she can financially afford to succeed in her battle to beat this disease, and is therefore undergoing traditional and non-traditional treatment, much of which is not covered by insurance and is very expensive. Arden's husband, David, her family and her two young grandchildren, for whom she loves and cares for daily, need for Arden to win this battle, so I am asking for your help. Any donation amount that you can contribute to help fund Arden's treatment will be greatly appreciated by all of us. We would also appreciate your sharing this page. Thank you so, so much.
