Ashlee Cramer and her family need our help.

Donation protected
Hello Friends,

Many of you personally know Ashlee Cramer, as she has touched so many lives with her teaching for years in Miami. For those of you who don’t personally know her, well she is probably one of the strongest, most positive, energetic, happy souls out there, and we know you would love her like we do. Ashlee is quite a private person, but finally has given us permission to share her current family struggle as we know that people will want to help her during this difficult time.

Last week, Ashlee’s 19 year old son Michael was diagnosed with a form of T Cell Lymphoma called Hepatosplenic Lymphoma. He immediately started chemotherapy treatment at Miami Children’s hospital and they are staying positive and strong. They already know that he is in need of a Bone Marrow Transplant. This could take place as early as late September, but right now it’s a waiting game. He first needs to undergo aggressive treatment to prepare his body for that procedure. The BMT itself is a very intense long process but has great success rates and is what Michael needs.

For those of you who don’t know, Ashlee is a single mom of 3, as her husband passed away from a similar form of cancer a little over 4 years ago. She is also self employed, so basically if she doesn’t teach/work, she has no income coming in, and as you can imagine her business was already affected due to Covid-19.

We want to raise these funds for her so that she doesn’t concern herself with having to make a choice whether to go teach a class or stay by her son’s side during the tough days ahead. We already know that for a minimum of 5 weeks during the BMT she will not be able to work at all as she will be his caregiver during the process. At this stage she also has no idea what his insurance will cover, but it’s pretty clear there will also be additional medical bills. If we raise these funds for her, she will not have to worry about making money to put food on the table, pay rent, and tackle those bills that will start piling up.

We are aware that many people are currently going through financial issues so completely  understand if you cannot donate, but even just keeping this special family in your thoughts and prayers will be very much appreciated.

I ask that you please give the Cramer Family their privacy during this difficult time, but feel free to reach out to me (Vicky) if you have any questions.

Thank you all and we will update you soon on Michael's progress.

Organizers: Vicky Politi, Nicola Brisuela, Marie Gaschler, Kristin Douthit Richards.
