Marie's Cancer Treatment Fund

Marie was diagnosed with Stage IV Cancer in February and has quietly started treatment. She is combining non traditional therapies, including Vitamin IV  ($200-300 per infusion)and accupuncture ($80 per sesssion) and others, that have been proven successful in conjunction with chemotherapy. Unfortunately medical insurance does not cover these therapies  and the costs are escalating. So I am now reaching out to all of you and also our wonderful Pilates community for help. I have known Marie for 17 years and it has been heartbreaking watching her go through this process.

Marie, and her husband Vess, are extremely optimistic and doing everything in their power to beat this so please help out if you are able to. 

In respect of her privacy, we ask that you send myself, Rachel, any thoughts or words of support for her. Alternatively, you can send her a private message to her Facebook acct.  Thank you xx
