Pira's Plea

38186826_1554312590528437_r.jpeg38186826_1554219091941702_r.jpeg38186826_1554219118377828_r.jpegIt is with heavy hearts that we are asking for your help again.  Pira Christo - mother, daughter, sister, dear friend, animal rescuer - and so much more - unfortunately is fighting another brutal battle with cancer.  There will be many costs that are not covered by insurance; we are asking that everyone please share this on all social media platforms in the hopes of raising enough money to help defray some of these costs.  Pira is fierce, a fighter, a survivor - and needs everyone's help to have a chance at creating more memories with her family, especially her children, and her friends.  We wouldn't be asking for more generosity than so many have already shown; however, she has been diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, and needs to be able to remain in her home with her daughters during treatment.  Pira recently started a clinical trial at Massachusetts General Hospital.  We know that many of us have different needs and challenges - some unspoken and unknown - but we are asking that you give whatever you can - and if you can't donate, which we completely understand, please send healing energy her way; and if you're a person of faith, prayers would be appreciated.  For those of you who were fortunate enough to have met Pira in 1978 on Cape Cod, you all know she's the OG of the Island Girls - we wouldn't have all come together during that magical time in our lives had she not been there - so if you can contribute, we will be forever grateful.  "A dream you dream alone is only a dream.  A dream you dream together is reality."  - John Lennon
