Our dearest friend Allison Sherman is facing the battle of her life right now and needs our help.

Recently diagnosed in April 2015 with stage 2 breast cancer following a lumpectomy and sentinel node removal, Allie now faces 5-6 months of chemo, followed by more surgery to remove additional nodes and then a round of radiation. We are all devastated by this news and have created this fundraiser to help her in her time of need.
If you are reading this, I don't need to tell you how special Allie is....chances are pretty strong that you already know this. To know Allie is to love her. She is not just a friend, she is a best friend to everyone she knows and as we are spread out all over the world, this is a concrete way we can help where it is most needed. In addition to the health challenges that she is facing right now, Allie is in an extremely precarious position not being a full-time faculty member at her university. She is an adjunct professor with all of the responsibility and none of the benefits. So at this time, she and her family are unaware of the financial burden this will take as medical expenses begin to accumulate. It is a scary time full of unknowns. We hope that by raising funds to be used at her discretion, we can lighten this part of the burden so that she and her family can focus on getting her well and past this most grueling of regimes.
If the circumstances were reversed, we all know that Allie would be rallying around each and everyone of the people she cares about. No amount is too small to give and we appreciate you keeping our dearest friend, daughter, sister and aunt in your thoughts and prayers at this time.
