Friends/family of Allison Morse McGuire and her family come together to raise funds to help them with mounting medical and other costs.

Allison was diagnosed with breast cancer this spring. She had surgery in June. In July, she began chemotherapy. Her prognosis was very good. On August 25th, she unexpectedly came down with a horrific fever and headache and went to the hospital. She was transferred to Yale almost a week later when the doctors couldn't control her fever and realized she might have something needing more specialized attention. She has been diagnosed with Mycoplasma Encephalitis. Everyone is hopeful that she will be able to fight this and get to a rehab facility soon. By the way, Allison and her husband, Tim, started fostering two young girls last November. The girls are doing very well, considering all that's been going on in their lives. Shortly, Allison's benefits with her employer will end and they will no longer pay her insurance premiums, in addition to her being out of work. It's a scary time for Tim, the girls, and Allison. I can't think of a better cause.
