We are good friends of MaryCatherine Hydrick (MC) and her family, and were devastated at her recent diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). 

     MC has long nurtured many aspirations, including professional teaching and raising a family.   She earned her teaching degree last May, and has been teaching third grade this year until her recent hospitalization.  She now faces a 30-day hospitalization, and once remission is achieved, a bone-marrow transplant as soon as a donor match can be found.  MC has medical insurance, but the deductable for this hospitalization and treatment will be about $10,000.  Additionally, there may be a possible need for egg harvesting which is not covered, and would be about $6000.  
     MC and her family are some of the most selfless people that we have had the fortune and opportunity to know over the past 8 years.

We are better people for knowing her, as she has truly taught us what it means to love and “walk humbly with God”. This Go Fund Me account is just a small way for us to show her our appreciation and love, as it will hopefully lessen the financial burden of the many medical expenses that she will encounter throughout this process, while she is taking a leave of absence from work.  All funds donated will go directly to MC to meet her needs.

Hello friends! We are edging ever nearer to our goal! Please continue to promote this cause to your friends, acquaintances, business partners, and family - we are not done yet. MC did not achieve the remission we hoped for with the first round of chemo, and has now started her second cycle, this time with some different chemo agents. She remains strong and in good spirits! Please continue to help her and her family.

P.S.: For those of you gifting generously at $100 or more, please write a brief note that includes your size for a T-shirt!

Hello all! We are already more than halfway to our goal - please tell your friends and let’s keep those donations coming!! MC has been hanging in there during her treatment in true MC fashion! She’s a bit more worn out at this point in her treatment than this photo might lead you to believe, but her spirits are great and she’s progessing well! Thanks for all your help so far!
