Auction for Childhood Cancer: Anecdote
This auction is for $500 credit to Anecdote
As you may know, I’m one of the founders of Anecdote, and we’re excited to be a part of this auction. We have everything from furniture and rugs to candles and decor, and it’s where all our living room furniture is from.
On May 16, my 22 month old was diagnosed with Leukemia. On January 25, we finished the most aggressive part of treatment, and prepare to start “maintenance” in a few weeks. Just 4% of the billions of government dollars spent annually on cancer research goes toward treating childhood cancer and as a mom to a toddler who just finished frontline, I need to help make things better for other children and their families. Our babies are worth more than 4%.

Where the money goes
I’m fundraising for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, an incredible organization that funds childhood cancer research and supports families going through treatment. In the past, I have fundraised for our hospital and will continue to do so, but wanted to focus my efforts on helping Alex’s Lemonade Stand. ALS works directly with our hospital and others to help families who need financial assistance during treatment, and their COVID-19 relief fund has provided over $650,000 in direct (much-needed) support to over 2200 families.
The highest bidder will win a $500 gift card to Anecdote. Thank you to my friends and partners at Anecdote for helping us fundraise for childhood cancer.
