Help me marry my gf battling Leukemia
Organized by: Joshua King
EVENT DATE Sep 11, 2014
My girlfriend (hopefully soon to be fiancé) has a rare form of Leukemia. At 21 she was diagnosed and a day later was in Stanford receiving chemotherapy treatments which put the cancer in remission ...for almost one year. Then Christmas of 2013, she wasn't feeling well and went to the hospital. Unfortunately it was discovered that she had relapsed. She went back for round 2 of chemo. Thankfully the cancer went into remission again. The doctor's said that this would happen again and continue to happen if something wasn't done. Basically giving her approximately 6 months to live.
As I'm sitting here writing this, my love is at the cancer center receiving chemo treatments yet again, and radiation, in preparation for a bone marrow transplant that will hopefully save her life. She will be in isolation for the next 40 days, while the transplant takes place, then will have daily appointments for another 100 days.
I have fallen madly in love with this girl. She's perfect for me. We both love camping, fishing & hunting, motorcycles, the lake. I tell her all the time, "You're me, with boobs". lol. We're perfect for eachother. Iove her. She's my soulmate. I want nothing more than to marry this girl. My goal is to save up enough money in the next 3-4 months (while she's in receiving her bone marrow transplant & in treatment) to put a ring on her finger as soon as she is well enough to come back home.
Please help me to buy an engagement ring for the love of my life! She's currently in Stanford Hospital undergoing a bone marrow transplant. We met on the 21st of a month & she's always dreamed of a fall wedding. We've discussed it and have decided on a date ...Nov 21st 2015. I want to propose to her on Nov 21st 2014. Unfortunately, I don't think there's any way I can save enough money to purchase an engagement ring in such a short amount of time.
That's why I'm here asking for your help. There's no way I can save up enough money in the next few months to buy this beautiful girl the ring she deserves. I'm not trying to raise $20K for some ridiculous, over-the-top engagement ring. If I can raise $3,000-$5,000 I can buy her a beautiful ring that she deserves. We have both discussed marriage, and she definitely feels the same way. It's time to make it official. I can't post this on my Facebook or anything like that, because she'll see it. I'd like for this to be a surprise. So if any of you could help out that would be much appreciated. And if you can't, please pass this along so that others may see it. I thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope to be able to make her dreams (as well as mine) come true.
Here's the link to an article written in a local newspaper about her for anyone who cares to know more:
