Help Team Rachel Kaye Bethke battle Brain, Kidney and Lymph node Cancer. All donations will go directly to Rachel's medical bills.

Our friend and inspiration, Rachel Kaye Bethke, has been struggling with her illness for some time now. Unfortunately, her prognosis has taken a downward turn. The brain tumors have reemerged and now the cancer has spread to her kidney and Lymph node. Rachel currently has about a 50/50 chance of survival.

Rachel was forced to stop pursuing her PHD in Alabama and has returned home to be with her incredibly supportive family in Grand Haven.

Possibly the most tragic part of this story is that even if Rachel is able to survive this event, her and her family will be faced with more than $200,000 in medical expenses that are not covered by her insurance. Team Rachel Kaye Bethke is trying to help Rachel and her family cover these out of pocket expenses so that they can focus on her recovery instead of worrying about their financial situation. Team Bethke is hoping to raise $10,000 to cover the costs that have already been incurred for removing and performing a biopsy on her brain tumor.

All of the money raised will go directly to paying medical bills. We will be responsible with your money and we respect your contribution to this very worthy cause.
