Organized by: Emily Beard

EVENT DATE Jan 28, 2016

THE STORY:

On behalf of the Smarties Parents Association, this is a tuition fundraiser to benefit the Schaaf family – Mike, Alexis and Carey – as they continue their heart-wrenching journey with Mike’s terminal brain cancer.

***This is a separate fundraiser from the CrowdRise that went out earlier this week to fund Mike's End of Life Expenses. This one is specifically to cover the costs of Carey's educational expenses - Smarties tuition and beyond. The SPA and the Schaafs are aware that many Smarties families have already donated to the other CrowdRise fund and are grateful for donations to either fund.***

Alexis is our Smarties Parents Association Treasurer and of course mom to Carey (in the two year old room).

The goal with this page is to ease the financial burden on the Schaaf family and to channel our Smarties community love and concern for them into something practical so that they can focus on each other, being together, making memories and keeping Mike comfortable as a family in these coming weeks and months.

Bogna is very generously providing a free month of Smarties tuition and so the SPA aims to match her thoughtful gesture . . . and then some. Please give whatever you are comfortable with. No amount is too small. This is as much a moral support-a-thon as it is a fundraiser.

For those of you who are unaware, Mike has been battling this brain cancer since before Carey, now 2 years old, was born. He has beaten the odds and survived longer than most people with the same diagnosis - enduring surgeries, complications, multiple rounds of chemo and radiation. Over the last weeks the tumor in his brain progressed and this week he has transitioned from treatment with a curative intent to hospice care at home.
