Less than one week after Lindsey Sells published a MedGift support page for her friend Heather Morris, Heather’s supporters have contributed well over their goal of raising ten thousand dollars. In less than 6 days, Heather’s MedGift support page has raised $12,140 or 21% more than the original goal. Of course, MedGift’s support page didn’t make this happen, it was Heather’s generous support community that deserves all the credit. MedGift’s role was to provide a resource that connected Heather with all those who care. Check Heather’s story at Heather’s Heroes. Please consider sharing this post with your friends. MedGift is the only not-for-profit, completely free, COMPREHENSIVE resource for connecting those in need with those who care.
Saturday, March 4th, Kelly Hendrix and her three bike team will be riding in honor of our dear friend Diem Brown, MedGift cofounder and visionary. From the Cycle For Survival Website:
As part of Team #DIEMSTRONG, it’s our goal to spread Diem’s message in helping others and inspiring everyone to live life for that day and to the fullest. Please help promote her legacy and spread the word about the causes Diem was so passionate about.
Diem’s sister, Megan, partner at MedGift said it best: To pay tribute to Diem is to live your life like Diem, so “Live Hard. Love Hard. Dance Hard.” To be #DIEMSTRONG is to love life, always have hope, and fight for what you want no matter how difficult a challenge you face.
100% of every dollar you give goes directly to pioneering research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK).
Why this is important to us:
PATIENTS DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TREATMENT OPTIONS.
For many rare cancer patients, there is no game plan or treatment protocol—and that’s a very scary thing. Cycle for Survival is committed to changing this reality through funding new clinical trials, studies, and research initiatives to propel forward progress. In its first ten years, Cycle for Survival has already raised more than $100 million—and we will not stop until we beat rare cancers.

To me, Heather is a friend. But Heather wears many hats: wife to Mike, mother to Tre and Addie, daughter to Dale and Sherry, sister to Ben, coach, mentor,
believer, survivor. The list goes on and Heather loves her people fiercely. In July 2015, Heather learned she had breast cancer. She fought. She endured rounds of chemotherapy and radiation treatments, surgeries-I lost count- and hospital stays. And she won the battle! …

The MedGift team recently received the following email from a supporter:
Hi…I am trying to add www.medgift.com/Daniels-Dream-Team to my work “giving page” so that employees can donate and our company will match . However I am in need of your EIN number in order to do this . How can I get that? Thanks so much!
After directing her to her MedGift receipt which she received after making a donation for our EIN it occurred to me, Daniel’s supporter had come up with a great idea to take advantage of her employer’s matching funds program in support of a worth-while cause.
By adding Daniel’s MedGift support page to her employer’s giving page she made Daniel’s needs known to her co-workers which is certainly a win for Daniel., by creatively supporting Daniel’s needs she certainly creates a win for herself. After all, what feels better than helping. And finally, by adding MedGift, a 501(c)(3) organization to the giving page, any contributions made by her co-workers to MedGift, are not only tax deductible but will be matched by her organization. Hey, maybe thats a win-win-win-win, but no worries, its good all the way round. Cheers!
Visit I Support MedGift to make your tax deductible gift today!

Wish Lists are one reason MedGift is different!
When your life’s journey includes a medical hardship you have many needs: emotional support, financial help, help with with routine tasks and sometimes you just needs things. Check out Tracy’s MedGift support page We’re Tracy’s Tribe! and how it uses MedGift unique Wish List feature to specifically identify what she needs in her time of need. This removes the guess work for Tracy’s support community – they know exactly what Tracy needs. These needs can be met with financial support or direct gifting of the items. So skip the flows and cards and check out MedGift’s wish lists when someone you love needs your help. Just one of the things that makes MedGift refreshingly different.
If you’re reading this, you’re here to help, and we thank you eternally for that !
