Help Liz Fight Cancer and See NY

My sister Liz is the best. She is one of the kindest, most outgoing, and generous people you will ever meet. But, because the world is stupid and unfair, she was diagnosed earlier this year with Mucosa Melanoma, which has progressed to Stage 4.

This campaign has two purposes: The first is to help Liz meet her deductible for the year, and take some pressure off as she receives treatment over the coming months. 

Unfortunately, there's no telling how effective the treatment will be, and the doctors are encouraging Liz to do the things she's always wanted to do, which brings us to the second purpose for this fundraiser: Liz has always wanted to see New York, and would like to travel there in January of 2018, while she is still healthy enough to do so.

If you donate to this campaign, you would be providing a huge amount of help to Liz and our family in these difficult times, not only by helping to pay for her treatment and battle against cancer, but by helping her to fulfill her dream of visiting New York City.  All money raised by this campaign will go to Liz for these two purposes.

Thank you so much for your help, and even if you cannot donate, your thoughts and well-wishes are much appreciated.
