Hey folks,  My dear friend Alana is battling a beast of a cancer. To be young and full of life - and receive a dx like this one is an unmatched See More

THE STORY:

Alana Devich wrote -

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 over $50K 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?

Dear Alana and Malkia, I haven't had the chance to see you all in person much but your are with my heart. I don't understand why such a difficult task has been given to you. I don't understand why so much difficulty has been bestowed to anyone. What I do know is that struggle is feeling more and more normal and less like something we need to hide. Triumph takes many different forms and there's no definitive way to complete this journey. We are all scared. We are also all equipped to handle what's been given to us to fight. Please take care. Angry love. 8 months ago
