Help MaryCatherine Hydrick beat AML

We are good friends of MaryCatherine Hydrick (MC) and her family, and were devastated at her recent diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). 

     MC has long nurtured many aspirations, including professional teaching and raising a family.   She earned her teaching degree last May, and has been teaching third grade this year until her recent hospitalization.  She now faces a 30-day hospitalization, and once remission is achieved, a bone-marrow transplant as soon as a donor match can be found.  MC has medical insurance, but the deductable for this hospitalization and treatment will be about $10,000.  Additionally, there may be a possible need for egg harvesting which is not covered, and would be about $6000.  
     MC and her family are some of the most selfless people that we have had the fortune and opportunity to know over the past 8 years.

We are better people for knowing her, as she has truly taught us what it means to love and “walk humbly with God”. This Go Fund Me account is just a small way for us to show her our appreciation and love, as it will hopefully lessen the financial burden of the many medical expenses that she will encounter throughout this process, while she is taking a leave of absence from work.  All funds donated will go directly to MC to meet her needs.
