Team Crissy was formed in 2016 to support Crissy Connelly and to raise money to help find a cure for this devastating disease. Crissy in now in her first year beyond surgery, radiation, and 12 months of chemo. It was not an easy year, but she tackled it all with her wonderful strong spirit. She continues to be proactive with her diet and other possible treatments to lick this disease. Her tumor is stable and "asleep", we want it to stay that way till a cure is found!
Crissy is an amazing gal. She is the mom of a 6 year old girl and 4 year old boy, wife of an Oakland firefighter, much loved sister of Sarah and Laura, and our precious daughter! Beyond that, she has many extended family members , friends and colleagues who are all pulling for her recovery. She has put aside her speech therapy career while she works on beating cancer but does continue to volunteer at grammar school, preschool and Lily's Legacy Senior Dog Sanctuary. Her goal the first year of this disease was to fight with conventional medicine but now beyond treatment, her goal is to live life to the fullest and pull for the discovery of a cure.
Please join our cause and become a member of Team Crissy! We appreciate any support for Crissy and all of the others who are fighting this cancer. Together we WILL find a cure! As one of my friend's said, who knows, maybe this donation will be the one to help find that cure!
Thank you so very much!
