Rebecca’s Kaleidoscope of Love Fund

"I live in a kaleidoscope of love that my family and friends weave around me. With them I am never nothing. I feel fully embraced. Even though I am physically altered – my hair has fallen out, I’m wasted thin, my belly distended – still, I am whole with them. This is an incredible gift. I am whole in their presence." - Rebecca Snyder 

Hi everyone! 

Many of you know and love Rebecca Snyder as much as we do, and we're not sure ho many of her friends know how tough it's gotten lately.

Rebecca's physical health is taking her on a harrowing journey right now, not to mention the bills piling up. 

Rebecca was first diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in October of 2010, 3 weeks before her and her husband, Jason's 1 year wedding anniversary.

Ever since both of their lives have been dedicated to recovering from this disease. 

Rebecca has gone through a mastectomy along with radiation, chemotherapy, and various forms of holistic medicine.

It is extremely expensive to be sick and it seems a shame that Rebecca and Jason have to be worried about money when they're in survival mode.

Rebecca has not been able to work.

Jason has to work and can't be with rebecca.

Our goal is to help do the following:

- pay medical bills beyond what insurance is covering

- enable them to continue living in their own space

- help Jason have more time with Rebecca

- ease their hearts and minds

We are not able to anticipate what their costs will be.

Our current goal, to help them with immediate bills and living expenses is $25,000. Just give what you can - everything helps, including sharing this page with your beloveds and/or leaving a message for R & J. 

If you have been touched by Rebecca's healing presence or moved by Jason's therapeutic music, consider making a small donation to lessen the burdens that we can actually help.

For those who want a window into Rebecca's journey with cancer, we recommend reading her very personal and vulnerable blog "On Suffering and the Kaleidoscope of Love” recently published on The Heart of the Healer. 

Thank you so much for joining us on this journey, for being part of this Kaleidoscope of Love. 

We love you and are so grateful for your help!!!!
