Ok we are all set. This Wednesday at 643 we have a fundraiser break with all proceeds going to Vanessa Countway who is currently battling cancer.
Auctions end at 9:30 CST and we have some pretty awesome prizes to give away in this break. The prizes include the box of Masterpieces, 8 HatTrick bonuses including teams in The Cup, a box of Playbook, an Ovechkin Tryptichs auto, and 6 Tim Hortons packs.
100% of the money taken goes to Vanessa to help her in her battle. Here is her story..
Vanessa is a young woman in her early 30's with a beautiful 5 year old daughter and a loving, supportive husband. At 27 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had chemo, she lost her hair, and she had a mastectomy. Through it all the smile never wavered as Vanessa continued to work and be a wife and mother.
The years following this nightmare were peaceful and while everyone valued the gift known as Vanessa more, and hugged her just a little tighter when they saw her. Unfortunately, the story does not end there and on September 20, 2016, Vanessa learned that her cancer had spread, with bigger tumors (and more of them) in her lungs and also her brain. Yet still Vanessa will not give up, she has so much love and life, she is ready to fight even harder but at this point we know it will take more than a positive outlook and a strong support network.
She is not a candidate for surgery so her next step in her fight against this horrible disease is an immunotherapy drug offered in the USA. No surprisingly, such treatment is not cheap but the family is determined to raise the money for it. Cancer is not recognized within our bodies as toxin that needs to be fought off and this drug will help train her antibodies that the cancerous cells are a threat and therefore will cause them to react accordingly by fighting back.
