My name is Kelly, but I'm not here about me. I'm here about our friend Traci.
Traci is an incredible woman, who is always there for her friends and family, and now we need to be there for her.
About a month ago Traci's mother had a hysterectomy due to uterine cancer. This month, Traci was hit with the diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Traci and her mom run a small frozen yogurt shop in the pacific northwest. The winter is always a tough season, and with their medical challenges, this winter is going to be tougher than ever. We need to do what it takes to help them stay afloat.
As a business owner, Traci is a contributing part of her physical community. Through her fandoms including Dr. Who, Sherlock, and her love of Benedict Cumberbatch, Traci is a massive contributing part of multiple online communities, including the TadPool. Her foodie talents including magazine quality cookies (Traci made the Star Trek cookies that were featured on The Morning Stream).
I met Traci through the TadPool, and I have come to love her as my sister. It is time for us to take care of the woman who has been there for all of us.
Contribute what you can. Whether it's $1 or $500, I swear to help ensure that every penny raised goes to Traci and her mother. Think about it... if everyone in her fandom groups contributed $1, we can at least help her get through this winter.
She has a battle ahead. Let's not let her fight this alone. Step up. She would step up for you.
