In 2017, I Will Delight in Love, Living, and Gratitude
January 01, 2017

Today two of my favorite people came over to throw some tarot cards, write some intentions for 2017, and release back to the world those beliefs See More

THE STORY:

Last month I received the devastating news that I have stage 4 metastatic gastro-esophageal cancer, despite being a seemingly healthy 40-year-old woman with no medical or genetic risk factors. I can't have cancer, I'm MUFFY! But, I do.

My love, Mac (aka Mitts), has been my champion every step of the way. We've learned that winning the fight of my life will require more than a great insurance plan, oncologist, and medical team. It also requires alternative treatments, out-of-pocket specialist consultations, increased co-pays, special foods, and most importantly, time to manage all this.

Annually, this will cost us about $100K per year. As hard as it is to ask, Mitts and Muffy need your help.

Twenty years ago, Mac and I went to college together. Four years ago we met again and fell in love. One and a half years ago, we got married. We are undone at the thought of our uncertain future. But, Mac believes I can win, and so do I. So I am going to fight.

Will you chip in to help Mitts and Muffy go on and on and on?
