Shea's family, friends and community are uniting to raise money for Shea's medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

Shea has been battling Hodgkins Lymphoma for almost four years. Complications following her stem cell transplant last summer have sapped her strength as well as her family's finances.

Shea is currently fighting EBV PTLD (post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease), also called EBV Lymphoma, a viral complication which causes lesions to form and spread within the body. Shea recently completed proton radiation treatment to her throat and brain. She continues to receive chemotherapy to treat lesions in her lungs, kidneys and liver. She will return to New York City in early April for experimental t-cell therapy at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

These most recent months of treatment, with mounting out-of-pocket travel expenses and medical costs not covered by insurance, have been incredibly costly for the family. This fundraiser will help defray these expenses and allow Shea to return to New York.

If you would prefer to mail a check, please make checks payable to the Shea Anderluh Medical Expense Fund, c/o Chase Bank, 1 N. Dunton Avenue, Arlington Heights, IL 60005.
