Auction is being held March 21 through March 24, 2018
March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month!!!
I am teaming up with an army of makers to help Alex, a 21 year old young man recently diagnosed with colon cancer. Alex is in the battle for his life. His family is in crisis, over-whelemed by everything that is happening, trying to absorb it all. Trying to keep doctors, surgeons and treatments straight. Trying to learn everything that everyone is doing to your body or your loved one's body.
I have been in this battle, their are doctors, specialists, hosptials, labs, cancer treatment centers. Blood draws, PET Scans, CT Scans, the list goes on and on and on... You get the picture. Being diagnosed with an illness called cancer is like having a full-time job, with plenty of over-time, no days off and no pay. To learn more about Alex and the treatment regime that he is facing please visit his Go Fund Me page, started by his Mom, Allyson Still Have So Much to Live For. If you can't donate, please share this campaign, prayers are always more than welcome.
The Auction for Alex is running from 3/21/18 to 3/24/18, follow @knot.bad on Instagram for more information regarding bidding. Follow or search for the hashtags #stillhavesomuchtolivefor and #lookwithurheart
