Fund for Ray, Emily, Gabby, Lincoln

Emily had breast cancer in 2006 and then did several rounds of expensive IVF to have their son Lincoln, who is now almost 4. Before Lincoln was born, they had always planned on adopting - and were finally able to adopt a 20-month-old girl from Ethiopia named Gabby. But just three months after Gabby arrived, Ray was diagnosed with Stage 4 kidney cancer that’s spread to his spine, lungs and hip. In addition - and inexplicably - he has an aggressive form of bladder cancer! Medical costs are high even with good insurance, so we are helping to raise some money for this beautiful family!
