▪︎There is a less than a 1% chance of getting Breast Cancer again after undergoing double mastectomies but cancer has shown no mercy to Tracy Baker and her kids.
▪︎Tracy tackled breast cancer in 2005 at the age of 34. She endured months of chemotherapy and her breasts were removed. One battle with cancer is tragedy enough for a family but this family is faced with a SECOND cancer.
Another great resource is the Dragon Master Foundation (DMF) which is a not for profit organization staffed by volunteers that maintains a list of resources for those diagnosed with cancer. Check it out at http://www.dragonmasterfoundation.org/resources.
MedGift recognizes the needs of those undergoing a medical or health related crisis are complex. These needs may include emotional support from friends and loved ones, ability to keep everyone in your support community apprised of your progress, you may may need financial assistance for non-covered expenses, you may need specific items such as a wheel chair, hospital bed etc and/or you may need help with routine activities such as meals, house work, transportation etc. MedGift support pages address each of these needs in a simple, fast and easy to use manner. MedGift, the vision of Diem Brown, is a totally free, not for profit that is refreshingly different. Check us out MedGift at www.medgift.com.

MedGift’s Ambassadors act as point people and liaisons to individual communities and personal networks regarding how to best utilize MedGift and its unique features for patients, families and advocates.
MedGift’s focus is helping those undergoing medical and health-related hardships – our users are dealing with challenges much more complicated than figuring out to raise money to take a dream vacation. As a result, our ambassadors, who have practical experience with the complexities of navigating the healthcare maze offer invaluable insights and empathy to those experiencing a need. Meagan Gloverexemplifies all the wonderful traits our ambassadors share: empathy, sensitivity and how best to use MedGift’s unique capabilities. Take a minute to read her story, if you would like to reach out to Meagan email her at Ambassador@MedGift.com, subject line: attn. Meagan
Meagan’s son, Camden has short bowel syndrome, a rare and serious illness that resulted from a Camden with mom and dad[/caption]midgut volvulus the day after his birth. He has a broviac cathether designed to deliver nutrition/hydtration directly to his heart to sustain his life and a g-tube. In an effort to save his life Meagan and her husband transferred Camden’s care to Boston Children’s Hospital to enroll him in a clinical trial to start a medication to save his liver from the same IV nutrition that was keeping him alive. Far from home, and having to put Meagan’s career as a speech-language pathologist on permanent hold, the medical expenses were large. A close friend started a MedGift account for Meagan’s family to help sustain her family financially and emotionally during a very difficult time and while they sought treatment far from their home in the Southern US. ‘MedGift made a profound difference for our family, it’s was the greatest gift we could have received during our fight- and knowing Diem Brown‘slegacy was behind it all gave us the courage to fight despite challenging times.’
