The friends and family of Shana Hoffer are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against brain cancer. Please show your support!

UPDATE: The March 4th bowling benefit held in Shana's honor in Minnesota was a great success, attended by over 100 friends and family members. As of March 10th, the combined total of the event's proceeds, donations to Wells Fargo and gifts made on Give Forward is $19,944! This means that we are currently at 80% of the final goal!

THANK YOU to everyone who has helped us reach this milestone. The generosity of many people is making a huge impact for Shana and Tom. If you haven't yet made a contribution, please consider doing so to help us reach the final goal to support Shana in her journey!
On August 1, 2011, Shana was diagnosed with a malignant, aggressive brain tumor called a medulloblastoma, which is incredibly rare in adults. Since being diagnosed with cancer, Shana has undergone both radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

To help alleviate the financial strain, Shana's friends from The Basilica of St. Mary hosted a fundraiser in her honor on March 4 at The Park Tavern in St. Louis Park, MN. The benefit was attended by over 100 friends and family members and was a great success. Check out the photos on Facebook!

Our goal is to raise a total of $25,000 in event proceeds, online donations and donations through Wells Fargo. Your gift will be used to help offset the cost of Shana's medical treatments and assist with daily living expenses. Anyone can donate and each gift makes a difference.

You can donate on this website or donations can be made in person at any Wells Fargo Bank location, by telephone transfer (WF customers only) or mailed to:
Wells Fargo

Checks should be made out to "Shana Hoffer" with account #6938943203 in the memo line.

All the treatments, being unable to work and other unexpected obstacles have taken an emotional and financial toll on Shana and her husband, Tom. Let's show our support for our friends and do whatever we can to help them through this time! We know that Shana and Tom appreciate whatever you give. Please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers!

Thank you so much for your support!
