The family and friends of Christina Wright are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against colorectal cancer. Please help!

Dear Friends and Family,

As some of you may or may not know, Christina was recently diagnosed with Stage IVB Colorectal Cancer that has metastasized to her liver and lungs. For those of you who haven't had the pleasure of meeting Christina, allow us to tell you a little about her! Christina is 39 years young and the mother of two beautiful girls. Morgan (10) and Kendal (6). She has been married to the love of her life, Korey, for 20 years. She lives in Latham, NY and ran a successful daycare out of her home for many years until her recent diagnosis. Due to the diagnosis she has had to stop running her daycare business and her husband has had to take several unpaid days off from work. This has left them considerably behind financially. We are trying to raise money for their family for a few very important reasons: First, for medical expenses above and beyond what insurance is able and willing to cover. Second, to assist the family with their personal finances so they won't suffer during Christina's fight. And lastly, to help make sure that Christina's little girls get a super special Christmas!

Currently Christina is undergoing an aggressive chemotherapy protocol that we are hoping will kill all of the nasty cancer cells in her body! Every 11 days Christina has chemotherapy drugs pumped into her body via a chest port for 46 hours. This is going to be a long, hard fight for Christina and as her oncologist so succinctly put it, there is no "good" cancer to have. Either you have it or you don't, and we can only hope and pray that her body responds to the chemo! We hope that you are willing to help this amazing family out with your donation! Every little bit helps! As many families in this economy can attest, having one or both spouse miss work without pay is something that can easily cripple a household. We want to make sure that Christina and her family never have to suffer financial ruin due to illness! Even if you can only afford five dollars it can make all the difference! Please help Christina and her family as she battles this awful disease!
