Bad Ass Bernie Campaign

Welcome to the #badassbernie campaign!

In November 2014, our Lily Pulitzer-obsessed, wine-loving, foodie and sometimes-yogi Filipino Hokie, Bernie, was diagnosed with brain cancer.

Bernie has the biggest heart - she is sweet and kind when most of us would not be - and now it's our turn to give her some of that Bernie kindness she has shown all of us!

This dog lover has big, exciting plans to get a therapy dog to be by her side as she undergoes 6-7 months of chemotherapy and radiation treatments. She could use our help to cover the costs of obtaining a pup as well as other out-of-pocket medical expenses.

You can help out by DONATING HERE and SPREADING THE WORD by sharing this with your connections. And please keep Bernie in your thoughts and prayers as she walks this journey - with so many of us beside her.
