Help Christine Battle Cancer!

My friend Christine Mayo  is a tough, elegant, self reliant woman who spent years in the Seattle wine scene elevating thousands of dinners to high art. She has practiced her impeccable pairing skills and deeply intelligent understanding of interplay between food and wine in such stellar establishments as Le Tastevin, Avenue One, The Herbfarm and McCaw Hall. She has been generous with her time and talent, serving as sommelier at many a fundraising dinner and auction.

This past June, Christine hit a run of bum luck. Shortly after leaving her position at McCaw Hall to travel and write for a summer. Christine received a Cancer diagnosis. Now, she is one tough lady but this particular demon is aggressive and got into her spinal fluid and so forth necessitating some gruelling and relentless treatment. Since August she has spent a lot of time in a nursing care facility or Swedish Hospital and most of her cash reserves. Late last September her sister arrived from Germany and went to Christine's apartment to find it had been robbed in her absence. As is pro forma, her initial claim for long-term disability was denied and is currently under appeal.

Beyond medical care, there are many expenses that must be covered. Bills need paying, there are transportation costs to chemotherapy and doctors appointments and there are many little things that could make her daily experiences more comfortable and dignified while she fights. Thank you for your support.
