|A little over 2 years ago a very
dear friend of ours, Mandy Johnston was diagnosed with cervical
cancer at age 31. Although Mandy and John have health insurance,
it but covers only a fraction of the overall cost of Mandy's
medical expenses. Giveforward is an online
fundraising and donation website, and the easiest way to raise
money for a loved one in need. Donation transaction fee is
7.9% although for the average GiveForward fundraiser, 99.5% of donations go
directly to your loved one.
A fundraiser had been set up for Mandy and within 3 months over $45,000 had been received to help with Mandy's medical expenses.
This inspired me to create this webpage for any of our classmates or their family members that might find themselves in a similar situation.
At the bottom of this page is a link on how to easily set up a fundraiser for your loved one. If you do set up a fundraiser and would like it displayed, you may contact me with the details.
