 HOUSTON, TX

My best friend of 25 years has been diagnosed with an aggressive malignant tumor and is in immediate need of help. The good news is that with the right treatment, it is survivable.

Despite enjoying some initial success, Mari’s cancer has suddenly come back with a vengeance, and she needs help once again. With the last round of donations Mari was able to address a crucial amount of her medical bills and get back on her feet, so fundraising stopped. But now she has suddenly found herself needing to change her treatment course. She will be selling everything and surrendering her treatment to MD Anderson. We will be hosting her here in Houston. The only thing she is keeping is her dog and a few household objects. She will need donations to keep her cobra insurance to ensure she gets the best treatment available and so she can act quickly to survive.

TNBC is one of the most aggressive cancers known, and MD Anderson has some of the best treatment innovation and clinical trials. If anyone can save her, this hospital can. She will still see her doctors in Mexico while in traditional treatment.

If you cannot contribute monetarily, you can also donate miles to either delta sky miles #2412396604 or Alaska airline miles 29125836.

About Mari (if you don't know her): Mari Gallion is a writer, musician, and the mother of 18-year-old Oberon, still in high school, who Is earning his AAS degree program at University of Alaska Fairbanks starting in Fall of 2017.   She is known throughout the community as a social justice advocate and award winning journalist.

Her close friends know her as a loyal, generous, hard working, and supportive person who loves children, dogs, music, and spending time in the sunshine and the woods.  Mari is appreciated far and wide for her uninhibited and outrageous sense of humor.
