The friends & family of Karen Johnson Meyerchick are uniting to raise money to help Karen pay for treatments, and traveling expenses.

The friends and family of Karen Johnson Meyerchick are uniting to raise money to help Karen pay for treatments, traveling expenses and/or a last minute summer vacation.

Karen and Erik met in Tallahassee, Florida and got married in 2001. They began their life together to raise a family and live the dream, but sometimes plans change. Karen was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer that had metastasized to the liver in the fall of 2011 and her condition has continued to deteriorate rapidly since. Karen and her family have fought this disease tirelessly with weekly travels for chemotherapy treatments, hospital visits, etc.

Karen’s favorite spot on earth is Destin, Florida. This is where Karen and Erik had planned to retire. Their journey is ending sooner than they had expected and due to Karen’s condition she is unable to travel by conventional air carrier and a road trip of that distance is out of the question. We can't change this disease, but we can change how they spend what may be their last summer together as a family. So lets rally together to donate as much as possible in hopes that they may find the energy to rent a beach house or condo within their own state of North Carolina. It may not be the "Destin" of their dreams but the travel time would be minimal and something I know she could manage. As you may know, Karen has a wonderfully strong and supportive husband Erik and a hansom son Matthew who is now seven years old...playing sports and is all boy to say the least! There is no limit to how little or how much you may donate. All contributions are deeply appreciated - anything you can give will help...! Please take a moment to contribute and help spread the word.

Given our short window to contribute...this fundraiser will end on July 21, 2012. That gives us less than one month to reach our goal...God Bless.
