Alyssa is an inspiring 10 year old young lady fighting Osteosarcoma since she was 8. Your support helps her ongoing medical expenses.

As a friend of the family, I felt the need to be able to help in tangible ways as well as with prayers and kind words of support. Since I do not live close to the family, and embarrassingly lack a checkbook, I wanted to find a way to help with their ongoing medical bills and hospital trip expenses that could accommodate both my physical distance and my credit card. I suspect that I am not the only one in this situation. It is my hope that this will be another avenue for some relief to the wonderful Divers family.

So Live Alyssa Live! :)

Additional information straight from Alyssa's page on CaringBridge.org:

Two weeks before her ninth birthday, Feb 2011, Alyssa's family received news that her knee pain was caused by osteosarcoma. She has endured a long and difficult road. Final MAPIE chemo administered 5/14/12. Before Alyssa could be released, a local recurrence at the original tumor site was discovered. Amputation 6/15. Recurrence found 7/26. Excised 8/2. Her mom, dad and sister (now 7) continue to welcome your prayers for Alyssa's strength, energy, will and healing.
