Meet Mary

Young adult cancer patients are too old for support progams like Make a Wish, yet too young to have their own resources:

Meet  Mary --

This has been extremely difficult for the whole family since we need to hold down our full time jobs, tend to her needs, and care for her younger brother. I imagine this has been particularly hard on her 10 yr old brother who is lost in the shuffle and spends his weekends in the infusion lab or her hospital rooms. Yet just like Mary, he never complains. I would love to see them take a relaxing fun vacation together. She always dreamed swimming with the dolphins. I hope you can surprise her with the trip of a life-time. She deserves it!
