Upside Down House

My longtime friend, Will Chitty, grew up in North Bay, Ontario, then moved to British Columbia where he made his home in the mountains with his beautiful wife, Melanie, and a slew of animals. Life could not have been more right.
But Mel knew something was wrong, and painful; and on February 10 it was discovered that there was a tumour on her spine. Not just any tumour -- a rare bone cancer in her C1, the very top vertebrae.
Will's parents flew to BC to look after the homestead, and Will brought Melanie to the hospital for weeks of intense radiation and chemotherapy. The pair must remain there until after surgery to remove the tumour and fuse the vertebrae of Mel's neck to support her head.
Melanie is self-employed, and Will has taken a leave of absence from his job. Will's sister has started a gofundme campaign in order to meet their needs until they beat this thing.
I'd really love to support Will and Mel while their world is turned upside-down. Thank you so much, Autumn, for joining me.
And thank YOU.
