Kristy's Support Fund

Kristy's partner, Kelly, was diagnosed with Stage 4 esophageal cancer in July of this year at the age of 33.  After a round of radiation, Kelly has been undergoing chemotherapy and has had multiple admissions to the hospital due to the unfortunate and difficult side effects of his cancer and its treatment.
Kristy has been by Kelly's side every step of the way and has been his biggest advocate.  As a nurse, she understands the medical aspect of his illness and as his partner, she sees the personal effect this has on him.  Kelly is on sick leave from work while Kristy took a short leave from her full time position at BC Women’s NICU.  Due to decreasing financial funds, Kristy has had to return to work full time in order to support both herself and Kelly.
We are hoping to help alleviate some of the financial strains they are experiencing and allow Kristy to focus her time on caring for Kelly. Any amount that you may be able to donate, no matter how big or small, is much appreciated.
