The siblings of Carrie Binder are trying to raise money to help with medical bills and other expenses as she recovers from Kidney Cancer.

Carrie wants to thank all her family and friends for their
overwhelming support during this time of distress. Sadly, there is no way to whisper Cancer on the Internet.

As many of you know, Carrie found a tumor the size of a small grapefruit on her kidney on March 30th. She had no symptoms, but decided to ask a doctor friend a silly and embarrassing question. We¹re very glad she did. On Monday, April 9th, she will begin on her road to recovery with one less kidney, but hopeful that the surgery will be the only treatment she needs.

As many of you know, the American medical system is great at some things, and not so good at others. The excellent care of doctors, surgeons and nurses are only covered 80% by her insurance.

Many of you have asked, "What can I do?". For some of you, the answer may be to help Carrie reach the $10,000 goal on this site. For others, the answer may be bringing her some macadamia nuts, taking Mauka for a walk, or even making Carrie snort out her coffee or beer laughing in a few months.

Whatever you do or have done, we appreciate your love and support for our sister.
