Who needs your support?

Mike and his wife Fallon need you

With his first child on the way, Mike has everything to look forward to. He also has a lot on the line.

As a stage IV colorectal cancer patient undergoing treatment in New York City, Mike is navigating some of the scariest days of his life.

Mike - In His Words

"My biggest fear right now is getting the virus. I’m fighting cancer so I don’t have a great option to stay home and truly quarantine all the time.”

“My wife, Fallon, is also six months pregnant with our first child so the stress on both of us is extreme.”

“COVID-19 impacted the plans for my most recent lung ablation as well as my follow up scans and plans for treatment. The procedure was delayed and has caused even more stress with the anticipation of waiting for an upcoming appointment.”

The Alliance’s new Care During COVID-19 Fund directly supports patients like Mike and his growing family. They need your support today!

Who needs your support?

Holly relies on the Alliance!

Aaron was diagnosed at age 30 with stage IV colorectal cancer. He and his wife and caregiver, Holly, face fear and challenges in a COVID-19 world.

Holly - In Her Words

"I am not allowed to attend treatment with my husband and support him through it.”

“My biggest fear now is that the situation with COVID-19 will delay potentially life-sustaining treatment and scans for my husband.”

“The Alliance team has been critical in moral and emotional support. They have also connected us with contacts we wouldn’t have known about otherwise and they alerted us to potential clinical trials we were unaware of. Daily chat has been a great resource and place to go for socialization.”

The Alliance’s new Care During COVID-19 Fund directly supports the programs Holly and Aaron have relied upon both before and after the onset of COVID-19.
