Fundraising Goal
Donor List


My sister in law Sam has been fighting a battle against cancer, which as anyone who has been in this boat before knows, is both a personal and family battle. Throughout this experience, I’ve seen my family’s strength grow exponentially through love and commitment to Sam’s remission, and we’ve learned how powerful support (of any kind!) is.

Sam is one of the absolute greatest people I know. Watching her deal with this nightmare has been truly eye opening and has taught me insane perspective. She never stopped being a Mom, a friend, a wife, a sister, and grew so much as an individual. Sam calls 2018 "rewarding", because it taught her an indescriable amount of resiliance. She finds the silver lining and her outlook on this all is just remarkable.

With that, please consider making a donation of any size.

THANK YOU, and so much love,


PS. A recent email from Sam to our Cycle for Survival Team on 1/29/19:

"We are SO excited for the event and are so grateful to you all for the amazing fundraising that you have done so far...we can't wait to see what the number gets to by the time the event is here. As you know, because we have raised so much already ($78,404 and counting!), we are able to designate all of our funds to go toward research for my specific type of cancer (CIC rearranged DUX4 small round blue cell tumor...aka the craziest, rarest of rare type of sarcoma). This is MAJOR, and potentially life saving, for anyone who receives this diagnoses in the future. Keep it up!"
