Cristy's family and friends are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against breast cancer. Thanks for all of your support!

Cristina Dosal Alampi was diagnosed with breast cancer this past August. The cancer was found in both breast and in turn, she had to under-go a double mastectomy on August 30th. She is currently recovering from her surgery and will have to begin her chemotherapy treatment the first week of November.

The cancer Cristy was diagnosed with is an estrogen-driven cancer, which means that her own estrogen fuels the cancer. Due to the type of cancer she has she will have to take a drug for about 5 years after her treatment to stop her estrogen production. This will more than likely have an impact on her ability to have children; therefore she and her husband, Paul, at the advice of her doctors, have undergone treatments to freeze their embryos. This cost is not covered by her insurance and has already added up to over $14,000. It will cost another $4,000 to have the embryos implanted.

She will also have insurance deductible costs, reconstructive surgery costs, the cost to purchase a wig plus many more miscellaneous costs. We know that many of you have been asking how you could help and Cristy is beyond grateful. Her best friends have decided to create this site as an avenue for anyone who would like to give to help Cristy get through this.

Cristy has an amazing spirit and a fantastic support system. Her husband is an absolute gem, her father is everything a daughter could ask for and her friends will do anything and everything for her. She has been a trooper through-out everything so far and we know she will continue to be one. These contributions will help ease any financial debt they incur.

All your contributions, thoughts, and especially prayers are very much appreciated!!!
