Alexis and Whitney

On August 11th, Alexis was diagnosed with Stage 4 Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL).  The NHL is an extremely rare cancer, having only been diagnosed in one person in the world, and only 3 other people have been diagnosed with it.  Therefore, the only treatment for the NHL is aggressive chemotherapy and radiation, which leaves Alexis with a median life expectancy of only 2-5 months.  If you know Alexis, you know she's a fighter.  On August 21st, Alexis was a walking cancer battle.  She was diagnosed with Stage 4 Grade 4, which is considered the most aggressive form of the NHL.  In order to treat her NHL, doctors are planning to remove her right lung, her left colon and her right liver, as well as her lymph nodes.  This leaves her with only 2-6 months remaining on her life.  A good portion of the tumors in her body are located in her neck and spine, and she's not sure if they can be removed.

Alexis and her life have only been made more complicated by the fact that her husband Whitney is also fighting his NHL.  Whitney is currently in the hospital fighting a life-threatening form of the NHL, and Alex is out of work for the foreseeable future due to Covid.  This leaves Whitney with no income, and a life of being a single parent, as well as not being able to work due to the NHL.  This is the most devastating news for a family that is already in a devastating time of their lives as they have no income coming in.  The NHL has also left Whitney holding a hospital bill for $300,000, which is nearly double his original estimate.  

Alexis and Whitney are both incredibly grateful and thankful for the outpouring of love and support they have received, but the fight to keep their lives as normal as possible, while they process this news and hopefully heal, is what keeps them going.  Please consider making a donation to help Alex continue to live her life with confidence.  No donation is too small!  Every dollar is appreciated!

This GoFundMe Does Not Exist

With medical costs skyrocketing, people are increasingly resorting to GoFundMe to pay for care their health insurance won't cover. Today, over one third of the fundraisers on the site are for medical expenses, creating a tragic marketplace where the saddest stories win.

We trained a neural network on thousands of these stories to see what patterns emerge. Every time you refresh the page, you'll get a new, completely fabricated fundraiser, featuring an invented person and story.
