Elyce Embery Leukimia Fund

Elyce is a friend, colleague, community leader, sister, and more. Her humor has brightened the lives of countless people, and her personality has always given warmth to those who needed it. 

Now it is Elyce who needs us to step up and support her. In June 2017, Elyce was diagnosed with Acute Myeliod Leukemia. She is currently at OHSU's Bone Marrow Unit and is going through chemotherapy. For at least six months Elyce will need constant medical attention. 

As many of us know, Elyce's parents both passed away before her 22nd birthday. Her longtime partner, Joel, is also a survivor of cancer and is living in OHSU to be by her side. Through all this, she remains resilient and positive. Friends like you are the family she needs in this unbelievably difficult time. 

Elyce has given so much to her friends and community. She needs our help to pay for medical expenses and to make the necessary move to Portland. Please help us eliminate financial worry and stress from Elyce's list of things to consider. 

Thank you for generous support of the friend we all love.
