Help Amber Takesh Beat Cancer

It is with a very heart that we share the news of Amber being diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. This diagnosis came as a complete shock to the Takesh/McMahon family and friends. For those of you who know Amber, you know she is a bright and bubbly light in all our lives and deserves all the help available to her. She has a huge heart, sometimes more for dogs than people, and a contagious laugh that you cannot help but laugh along with. Amber recently moved to the DC/Arlington area to begin her career at KPMG as a CPA and start her young adult life in the city with her friends. She unfortunately had to put this exciting time of her life on pause and has traveled back to New Jersey to begin treatment and be with her family. Amber will require inpatient chemotherapy as well as routine blood transfusions for 6-12 months. Depending on how her body reacts to treatment, she may require a bone marrow transplant later in this process. There’s no way to prepare for a situation like this, and it would be extremely helpful to lighten the financial stress of medical and general living expenses as Amber will be unable to work. Amber and her family are very generous and loving people, and it only seems right to show them the same kindness they give to others. If you are able to donate, know that nothing will go unnoticed, and every little bit will be strongly appreciated. Let us all keep Amber in our thoughts and prayers as she starts her fight against cancer.
