Fertigs Fight Cancer

$113,415 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 578 people in 59 months
Many are asking how to best help the Fertigs. In the coming months, Michelle and Todd are putting Todd's health as their top priority. Todd is taking a hiatus from work effective immediately. And Michelle will need to take time off from work to support him. Additionally, the Fertigs will have to take on special healthcare costs as they look to break the boundaries on what is thought medically possible in terms beating this cancer.

With this changing focus, they will need our support to sustain their basic needs -- from paying for childcare for their three children to maintaining mortgage payments to stay in their home.  We would love to see them not worry about finances during this time, and have some resources to afford meaningful experiences with their family and friends in the weeks and months (and years!) ahead.

Any help is appreciated, even the smallest help can help make the journey a bit easier.

Dear friends,

With your amazing generosity, we made it to our financial goal. Todd and I are so humbled by this. The amount that some people were able to give, the number of anonymous donations, the people who we don't know and still gave, the donations that came as a result of families pinching back themselves, or kids selling candy, or washing cars -- it's all so humbling. To each of you -- thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We are living moment to moment. Your generous donations have eased the burden on whether or not I can take a cab home from the hospital, or drive into the city and pay for parking. The donations will also help us to explore treatment options or in-home care options that would have never otherwise been available to us. Most meaningfully, the donations allow us to keep our kids cared for and in the home that we love so much.

We are not going to "close" the GoFundMe donation page, since we don't know what the next moment will bring. We are very, very appreciative of every cent that has gone into this jar.

With love, and joy, and peace and a big bear hug - Michelle

I'm thinking about you and your wonderful family right now. I wish I could quote Khalil Gibran right now. Continue with the light of the path you're on. You are the strongest person I know.

Iman's ALS challenge was to give a donation to my favorite charity. Thinking of all of you...
