On V-Day, Love Will Make A Way
February 13, 2017

Update from Alana Devich, aka Muffy: Happy Valentine's Day! I wanted to take a moment to share a few words about love. In the midst of my first See More

THE STORY:

Alana Devich wrote -

I recently received the devastating news that I have stage 4 metastatic gastro-esophageal cancer, despite being a healthy 40-year-old woman with no 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 housing and living expenses, expensive co-pays, special foods, and most importantly, time to manage all this.

Annually, this will cost us hundreds of thousands of dollars, and has already cost thousands. 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?
