More Info

Hello All! 

Sam and I recently found out that our friend Anna, a teammate at his muay thai gym, was diagnosed with a very rare bone cancer called Ewing Sarcoma. He noticed she hadn't been to the gym in about a month and we assumed it was because of COVID (the school is doing it's best with safety restrictions, so no need to worry) but it wasn't - it was because of a cancer diagnoses. She is in her early twenties. 

When I found out I couldn't help but think of how, because of COVID social isolation, friends and family aren't allowed to come over and give you lots of comforting hugs and just keep you company while the future spins into even further uncertainty and it just about broke my heart. Now of all times must truly suck to have to deal with that kind of news. Luckily, Anna is a total boss and is keeping up really good positive spirits and so far her chemo treatments have been going well. But that's where this fundraiser comes in :D  As we all know, medical care isn't inexpensive, so I reached out to Anna to ask if she would be okay with me raising money on her behalf to help her pay off bills (rent, groceries, etc) & medical costs and she was overjoyed that i'd even checked in to ask how she was doing let alone that I wanted to raise money for her. 

To make this a bit more fun for anyone who follows my knitting business, or just enjoys being warm and cozy, every donation will enter you into a raffle to win a custom Weasley Sweater made by yours truly. Please check my instagram/facebook for more details orand examples of my work. :)

SO... With all that in mind, even if you don't care about sweaters at all, please feel free to donate as much or as little as possible - any money raised will be going directly to Anna. 

I'll be posting photos and such to this page on our progress and hope to add a video at the end of presenting her with any funds raised so you guys get to see it :) 

I hope you have a wonderful day, now let's go raise some money to kick cancer's ass. Shall we?

Okay, you guys don't play around. Haha I am just blown away by your generosity. Just to see how far we can get together I've updated the fundraising goal to $2000, but by the way things are going I don't think we'll have a problem reaching -or even surpassing- it. Thanks so so much, have a magical rest of your day. -- Jenn
