Let’s help this family avoid foreclosure.

dave malo foreclosure donate cancer

I first heard about this via Ashleigh, who we (you all) recently helped get a home after she and her family lost theirs. We also hired her. Her story: How Community Helped My Family Escape Homelessness. {photos}

A moving story. Let’s help and in so doing reaffirm our own appreciation for our own lives.

On behalf of elephant subscribers everywhere, I’ll give $500 if readers match.

You in? If so, say in comments below. If you all donate a total of $500 or more and say so in comments (honor system), elephant will match with $500.

Most importantly, please give, share and get the word out.

Read the full story here.

“…Then her husband, David, was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney cancer and is now disabled and taking weekly trips to a hospital in Boston in a drug trial to try and save his life.

“It’s very stressful,” David Malo said. “It’s affected my blood pressure. It’s definitely affected us.”

With medical bills mounting, their finances began go down hill and their home is now in foreclosure.

Beth Malo’s boss has been moved to tears.

“It’s very hard for them,” Down Giovanucci said. “I just want to see them do well.”

And to act, she set up a fundraising page for the family...”


Inspired to give? Here.

Help us help David & his family to live with Cancer. Not only for the expense of today but for the expense of living with cancer brings.

Friends of David Malo would like you to join them in supporting David with his fight of Stage IV Kidney Cancer. David was diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Cancer in June of 2009. He is a father of 3 children and 3 step-children. The youngest child Nathaniel, pictured her with his dad also has a rare genetic disorder called Cardio-Facio-Cutaneous Syndrome (you can learn more about this at CFC International website). This little guy is definitely the apple of his daddy’s eye. David has been fight long and hard to stay with his family and help Nathaniel to survive. David has been a participant in two different clinical trial’s at Beth-Israel Deaconess Hospital in Boston, Mass. The current trial he is participating in AMG326 combined with Sutent requires him to receive weekly infusion treatments at the hospital in Boston. That is a minimum of 52 trips a year. Just for the gas to travel, parking in the garage for the day and the co-pay alone are very costly. David finished the 4 years study last January and is currently re-signed for next four years. We are proud and amazed along with his doctors at his success. We invite you to join us in helping him to keep this success going!
