Asking for help isn't always easy, but it's humbling...

Here is a link to my ChipIn account that goes directly into PayPal....
Many of you have been asking about this and here you go.....



  1. Yay for you!!!! I hope today is a better day!

  2. Hey - I had a thought - there is an organic produce delivery service in Portland....what about seeing if people wanted to buy a bin to be delivered? It is $27 a bin and can come weekly or bi weekly and cancelled or added to any time? Id be happy to organize!

  3. Awesome idea. I didn't know about ChipIn. Hope it helps. Hang in there! By the way, I'd like to link my new post to your blog. Hope it's okay.

  4. Done! And wishing you all the best in your journey to reclaiming your health. Will be following and rooting for you from the East coast <3

  5. Robyn,
    That is a great idea!!!!
    Organic produce is what I spend most of my money on! You are fabulous!
    Oh! Organize away and let me know what I can do to help please!

  6. Stacey,
    It is pretty great, a friend of mine showed me this when I was first diagnosed and it really helped out a lot.
    You may feel free to link to my post, you never need to ask ;)

  7. Shera,
    Thank you so much!!
    It is so great to know that I have another fan on the east coast! It is truly a small world.
    Be healthy my friend!

  8. Thank you for this site. I found it very informative. Good luck to you and if I can help in any way, please contact me. Thank you.

  9. Laura,
    I am a fellow patient like you, diagnosed this past June. I am not really good with this technology stuff....but you have been a great inspiration to me.....the fight seems endless ....warriors like you make the rest of us feel like this a war that can be won...
    Anyway...I would just like to help you out....and I am not sure the easiest way to get you some gift trader joes..
    So if you could guide me that would be awesome
    Ed from the eastcoast

  10. Laura,

    Thank you for sharing your storie. Call me if I can help in anyway.

  11. Hi Ed from the eastcoast!

    I love my east coast friends! Thank you for your message and let me say that I am so sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I know this cannot be an easy time for you. Please believe that you can beat this! That is a large part of the battle and it never hurts to try to have a positive mental attitude. I know that we cannot always be positive and that is ok too, we all need out time to be mad, hurt, pissed, sad, etc. It is often what makes those good time even better.
    Thank you for your offer to help, it really means a lot to me that there are strangers out there that I can offer some hope and inspiration to. Feel free to use the mail if you would like to send a gift card. I shop at trader joes frequently as it is only a block from my apartment.
    My addy is 4400 NE Broadway #406 Portland OR 97213.

    I hope that you are feeling good and please remember to take good care of yourself at this time in your life and always.

    Many blessings!

    1. Thanks laura
      Gift card is in snail mail
      Let me know if /when it shows
      We have a lot of work to do if we want to be miracles
      Have you asked your dr about radioembolization
      Seems like an insurance nightmare....but can't let that stop us

  13. Leslie,

    Thank you so much my dear friend!
    You are amazing!!!!!


  14. Good luck on your fundraising. I wanted to take a minute and share another informational article that I hope can help those suffering from other forms of this illness.

    I wish you the best of luck!

  15. Im so sorry to hear about your diagnosis, but am happy to see your fundraising efforts are seeing success!! Thank you for posting this! The victims of cancers lack many resources and emotional support to identify their needs, so websites like these are tremendous. This is very motivational and encouraging. Wow Jonathon I was reading that site and saw that they found asbestos in children’s school science kits. Its bad enough we still import the toxic chemical, let alone expose the youth to it! What’s wrong with us?! Read more here:
