Fight Ali's Brain Tumor

On Friday, March 2, 2018, our most amazing Alexandra Butler was driving to work when she began experiencing dizziness and loss of vision. A trip to the immediate care clinic led to a visit to the emergency room, followed by an overnight stay at Presence Saint Joseph's hospital in Chicago.

After dozens of tests and long days and nights in a cramped hospital room, doctors diagnosed Ali with a low-grade glioma on the left frontal lobe of her brain. While Ali, her boyfriend Ben and her family search for answers, a surgery has been scheduled for Friday, March 9 at the University of Illinois hospital in Chicago to remove the tumor. 

This is the beginning of a long and painful road to recovery for Ali and Ben, so we're looking to alleviate the financial burden that comes with this diagnosis. Ali and Ben will face hefty medical bills while taking considerable time off work. 

Ali is one of the most incredible, fun-loving and generous people you will ever meet. She loves puppies, good beer and Chicago-style hotdogs. It doesn't take long to fall in love with her sweet personality. 

Please consider donating whatever you can to help this amazing couple fight the battle of their lives. 100% of all donations will go directly to Ali and Ben as they battle this diagnosis.
