Shans Treatment Fund
We got to move to our new apartment last week with the massive help and support of John and Jayne The Gavin Glynn Foundation Mark and Shannon Wallace and all who helped us at Texas Children's Hospital Gallery Furniture Mark, Sarah, Philly, Meghan, Elaine, Sharon, Pamela, Staci, Molly, Cindy, Michael and all our Irish and American friends here who have helped us to make a very comfortable home away from home
We are scared and anxious about the unknown but excited about how this treatment will work for Shan. She's had all her tests and scans this past week and is ready to fight hard and beat Histio!
We are so very grateful of your incredible support and for getting Shan this far, there are no words to express how much this means to us xxx After expenses from January and the fee of 8% for the go fund me campaign we have approx $80,000 which will pay for her medical costs at the Baylor clinic for endocrinology, prescription charges which can be huge as we have no insurance here and day to day living, transport, groceries, utilities and whatever Shan needs to help with mobility as this has become a big issue for her. We also hope to get her brother and sister out here for as long as possible to keep some normality in our family unit
Please continue to keep Shan in your thoughts and also her friend Jillie who is still battling in ICU. These two girls are true warriors and deserve every chance of living life to the fullest xxxx
We will update you all as much as possible over the next week. Thank you all for your lovely messages, gifts and kind words It means the world to us xxxx

Hi Shan, Prayers to you and your family from Austin, TX. I was the Texas Rose of Tralee in 2007 and serve as the Co-Chair of the Texas Center now. Some friends of mine sent me your video; our Irish communities here are pulling and praying for you! Love from the Texas Rose family, Meagan
Really hoping you can not only hit your goal but go well beyond it. I have shared it on all of my social media accounts as well as tagged the Ellen Show in it and hopefully my fellow geeks following my movie Review accounts will help both spread the word and donate. Best of luck hitting that goal.
Watching your video this morning brought tears to my eyes because i know the pain my own beloved Grandmom suffered with cancer. I wish i could do more but i will try my best to reach out to my community, my workplace and to all of my friends to step forward and help you. Today is Valentines Day and for me to love humanity and loving those in need is valentines and i request to all to come forward and help you. It is now our fight and i am sure we all will win it. God Bless you !
Aspen Pharma Trading Ltd will be doing the RunAMuck Challenge on March 11th and have decided to raise as much funds as possible for you Shan. Your story has touched us all and we are 100% behind you :) We will also be raising funds via our own GoFundME page & sponsorship cards & donation buckets in the run up to the RunAMuck event :) Fingers Crossed we can raise some much needed funds for you Shan. Your bravery is inspirational :) We will let you know how much we raise and arrange payment to you as soon as possible.
I have seen your video and just wanted to tell you your story is being shared far and wide! I live in Alabama (United States) and have donated. I hope you far exceed your goal so you can just focus on getting better. I am praying for you and your family! #beatcancer #teamshan
Fuck this Texas hospital for sticking such a heft price tag on a family. I'm over joyed to see the outpouring of support for Shan but to negotiate $527,000 is complete bull shit. No doctor should ever be putting a price tag on a childs life and that's exactly what they are doing.
Hi Shan, what a wonderful girl you are xx just reading the comments below everyone is so proud of what you did, I know its hard, what you did took so much courage but the response is amazing. You have gone global and you have touched so many people. Now you go Kick Cancer's ASS and we look forward to your next utube video xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hello, My name is Mary-Grace and I live in Texas. In what part of Texas will you be staying? I assume Houston? I have many friends and family in the area, and one even runs a home-care company Houston that sends nurses to people's homes. Is that something you will need while here? What other types of things will you need? Do you have a place to stay? Do you have someone coming to stay with you? I am just trying to figure out if there is anyway I could help. Mary-Grace
