Brandon asked for a day off so that he could accompany me to the hospital for a surgery to put a port into my chest (which allows for easier access when nurses administer my chemo starting next week):
|This is a port. It reminds me of something from a horror movie.|
|This is where my port was just implanted via surgery.|
When Brandon asked for the time off, his boss came back to him with an amazing response: What did he think about Bareburger holding a fundraiser to help with Erin's cancer treatments? The owner of the franchise - who owns 4 Bareburgers in NYC - set aside one day to collect funds, and will give FREE FRIES to anyone who donates. Here's the flyer they put up in their stores:
|August 19th, y'all!|
|I've always wanted a pig to hug my face while I looked away. So emo.|
So, if you want to help, here are all of the locations you can go to on August 19 to make a donation (there are even some outside of NYC!):
57th St. (This is where Brandon works!)
Long Island City
Note: Those in bold are the original stores that created this fundraiser, so if you have a choice pop by one of them!
If you hate fries but still want to help, check out this post which details other ways you can contribute.
I truly cannot even believe this. Thank you, everyone, for making what has been a very dark time have a little bit of lightness.
