Help Gracie Kick Cancer’s Butt!!!

My sister Grace was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer. Last week she endured major surgery in which they preformed a C-Section horizontally and vertically to remove 5 inches of her colon, a large tumor in her Sigmoid Colon, and 26 lymph nodes. This is just the beginning of a long road ahead of her as she starts 6 months of aggressive chemotherapy.

Gracie is strong, her courage and positive attitude despite the circumstances is unbelievable high. I know she will kick cancer’s butt! Also, I know she needs our help. The best and least invasive options in medical care for this are astronomically expensive and not all covered by her insurance. She will be enduring months of physical and emotional hardship.. I do not want the financial burden of it all to weigh down her spirit. Together we can spread the word and help her tremendously.

Grace is a loving single mother of a 4yr old son, Chase and 3yr old daughter Scarlett. She resides in Chicago and will be seeking treatment at Northwestern Hospital one of the best in the national! Please take the time to donate today had help her on her way to recovery. Even the smallest donation is greatly appreciated as every dollar adds up! :)

Regardless, please please please share this on any and all of you social media platforms so that we may reach as many people as possible to share Grace’s story. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, in advance!!

With Love & Hope,
