Marilyn's Courageous Cancer Fight

Twelve year old Marilyn, a sweet, happy girl in a family of 5, was thinking about soon becoming a teenager, not fighting cancer. Suddenly ill, and after a series of tests, the diagnosis was more shocking than any of us could have imagined, Stage Four Hodgkin's lymphoma. She was admitted to Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego and has begun comprehensive chemotherapy and radiation treatments. With her mother by her side, she is bravely beginning her battle to fight this cancer. Her father, while still working when he can, is now exclusively caring for his other two children, while juggling everyday financial responsibilities with many new and unexpected medical expenses.
The first treatment last Thursday was very hard on Marilyn, and she has more ahead of her, then a three week break, with this treatment schedule ongoing for 7 or more months. We want to make money the last thing the family has to worry about while keeping Marilyn strong and caring for each other. Anything you can donate will be a help to her family, but also a gift to Marilyn, letting her know people care about her which will no doubt help to keep her spirits up. 
We cannot thank you enough for your kindness and generosity to a family that is part of our farm family and community.
