On March 24, 2016, Mary Tew, a 20 year old college student, recently lost her father, Jeff Tew, after a long battle with cancer. Mary and Jeff lived together in Frederick, Maryland where Mary has spent the last year caring for her ill father, attending Hood College and working part time to help with the many expenses that have accrued with such an illness. With her dad's death, Mary is now left with all the expenses of daily living: rent, utilities, car insurance, groceries, college tuition, etc... as a full time student and part time employee. In the midst of such a loss, which has caused Mary to embrace a life of independence at such a young age, we as her friends have set up this GoFundMe account to help her through this difficult time of transition. Any amount of money that can be donated would be greatly appreciatiated.
