Alana Has Cancer: Help #MittsAndMuffy Fight to Win
Team Member: Courtney Blaskower
Dear friends and family --
Many of you have heard me talk about Alana and my love for her. I've been working next to her for nearly two years now, and throughout this time we have become very close. She is one of the best people I know and is now fighting for her life. I am reaching out to see if we can pool together to help support her throughout this important battle.
In Alana's words......
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?
