Lilly's NET Cancer Awareness Fund

$6,060 of $5,500 goal

Raised by 63 people in 8 months
Saturday, November 10 is NET Cancer Day This is a very personal day for me, as Lilly, my 17-year-old daughter, was diagnosed with neuroendocrine (NET) cancer in July. After countless trips to U of M for appointments, tests, and scans, Lilly underwent surgery in late August to remove approximately 1/3 of her liver and several lymph nodes that contained tumors. She spent most of September of her senior year of high school either in the hospital or at home recovering.  There is nothing, NOTHING, worse than seeing your baby in pain and terrified, and not being able to do or say anthing to take it away.   Lilly is doing well now, but doctors can offer no insight into if or when the cancer will return. She currently receives monthly shots to prevent growth of any cancer cells that may still be in her body; she will need regular MRIs to check for cancer for the rest of her life.  The uncertainty of the future is unbearable at times. Lilly is raising money that will go directly to the Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation. She is selling zebra stickers at school (the cancer ribbon for NET cancer is zebra stripes), and I started this Go Fund Me campaign in her honor. All money raised will go to the  Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation's Spark Hope campaign, which is trying to "raise a total of $10 million to accelerate the search for more treatment options and cures for this poorly understood cancer." The campaign is "fueled by a challenge grant,"  which means that another foundation has agreed to match every dollar raised.  You can find out more about the Foundation and the Spark Hope campaign here:  https://netrf.org/donate/ To view the video Lilly made for her school fundraiser,  go to:  https://www.wevideo.com/view/1237112409 Lilly also made this video: https://www.instagram.com/p/BqBPJMCD8NF/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=xwf66n7kmo3l Thank you for your time and donation.
