Thank you for considering making a donation. Right now, donations are being matched 150% (holy moly) so a $10 donation is really $25, $100 is really $250, and so on!
As you probably know, my mom, Margaret Knoll (nicknamed "Toto"), is far and away my favorite person in the world. She was diagnosed with metastatic adenocarcinoma non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), with an anaplastic lymphoma kinase positive (ALK+) biomarker.
Luckily, that means there are specialized treatments for her type of cancer. Unfortunately, it's very rare (less than 4% of lung cancer cases), so research funding is woefully insufficient. This type of cancer is especially awful in that it targets a younger population (many times childbearing age!) and for some reason, it appears to affect mostly women.
Making a tax-deductible donation today will help further research to FIND A CURE and help keep my mama around! <3 There are also some benefactors who are matching donations this month (November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month), so any donation you make will go even further to find a cure, making ALK+ NSCLC a chronic disease, rather than a terminal one!
