To raise funds to help the Dexters with medical expenses as Mardene battles cancer.

Mardene has terminal cancer. She was diagnosed two years ago and underwent chemo and radiation therapy in order to shrink the tumor because the area was too compromised for it to be surgically removed. Both had to be stopped due to a severe decline in the health of her immune system and kidney function. She lost the use of her bladder, and suffers from colitis.

Though chemo had to be stopped it was discovered that the tumor had shrunk. She has been in and out of the hospital because of the colitis. Recently we were told that the cancer is back and the tumor is growing again. The outlook is bleak and there is nothing more they can do for her.
