Join Christie's Fight

On March 7, 2018, our sweet Christie Alvarez found out she was about to embark in the fight of her life. Christie was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Adrenal Cortical Carcinoma (ACC). It is in its 4th stage of progression and we urgently need to get her to an ACC specialist in order to find out what her next steps and options are. Initial medical expenses will be in tens of thousands. This does not include follow up medical expenses such as additional tests, travel or lodging or loss of wages. These costs will add up very quickly if she needs to see more than one specialist.  

We DESPERATELY need your help to raise these funds ASAP, as time is not on our side. Our goal is to raise this amount in 2 weeks so Christie can get the help she needs as soon as possible. She is a mother to a daughter and three young sons, as well as a loving wife, sister, cousin, aunt and friend to so many. 

Whatever you can spare, we would be so incredibly grateful...
