Kash for Kelly McKay

You may know my dear friend, Kelly McKay, starts her radiation and chemo on Thursday, September 28th. Kelly's tumor is a Glioblastoma Multiforme, stage 4, and it is malignant, invasive and aggressive. 

We enjoyed our 40th high school reunion this past weekend. I loved finding that her spirits are high, but I hated finding that her bank account is low. She can’t drive, go to work, or live on her own any more. She is single and will be relying on her 85 year old step-father and busy half-sister for the majority of her care. 

Please help this amazing woman meet the challenges of her living expenses (food, transportation, rent, medicine and treatment copays to name a few of her needs). Your donation will be the gift of care she needs to fight her courageous battle.

I recieved an email from the gofundme people that asked for more info., so I'm adding to the story to comply with this message:

Dear GoFundMe Customer,

Thank you for choosing GoFundMe.

After reviewing your campaign, we’d like to ask that you add some additional information to your story to make sure that all of the details are as clear as possible for your donors. Our number one goal is to ensure that the money raised on your campaign is used as you and your donors intended.

Transparency is always the best policy, and we ask that you include the following information in your story:

Who you are
Where you're from
Your relationship to the parties you're raising funds for
How the funds will be used (be specific as possible)
If you intend to withdraw the money, how you plan to send the funds to the parties you're raising money for or use the money on their behalf.

In the meantime, your account will be on hold. Please don't worry, as this doesn’t affect your campaign’s ability to accept new donations; only outgoing withdrawals will be paused.

Hope this clears it up. I am Jennifer Adams of Austin, Texas. Kelly McKay is my friend. The funds will be used to pay for Kelly's medical expenses, labs, and medicines, life expences such as electricity and water, help with rent, and some transportation expenses as she can no longer drive. I will be sending money from my account after it is deposited so these expenses get paid.
