Dear Shirley and Rick,
How lucky I am to have attended Northwestern ... go Wildcats!
Kathleen and I wanted to let you know how deeply touched and thankful we are for the outpouring of support we have received. You have made a huge difference in our lives and this money assures that my treatment won’t be interrupted by a lapse in health insurance coverage for the rest of the year. Surpassing the first goal that Anita set also means that expenses like the mortgage and groceries will be more easily met until Kathleen is successful in her hunt for a new job.
I’m now over halfway through the initial phase of aggressive chemotherapy that includes alternating six- and three-day stays in the hospital, spaced every four weeks. After that is completed I’ll begin consultation with a bone marrow specialist in Denver. My oncologist is very confident that we will be successful in knocking the cancer into remission this time around, allowing time for developing a plan for future treatment. MCL (Mantle Cell Lymphoma) is one of those cancers that keeps coming back, so I’m prepared for a long fight.
You may also want to know that Crowdrise, the fundraising site that Anita used, took much less than 1% in fees from your donations, making it even more effective. I was certain a mistake had been made, but the funds have been transferred, so I guess not!
We will never forget the rapid response of classmates, friends and community to our sudden and overwhelming challenge. You gave us time to respond effectively and without panic to this life-altering event and filled our hearts with hope and courage.
All our love and thanks,
Mike and Kathleen Selmer

My best - Anita
