Dear friends and family of Heather and Ian,

let's do something to help the Allens as they battle cancer. Everyone keeps offering to help, so let's put those words into action with this fundraiser. Funds raised will go to a professional home cleaning service to help the Allens as their energy is focused on getting Heather well again. Additional funds raised will go towards medical expenses and co-pays. 

Thank you all for pitching in! 

UPDATE (March 5th, 2014):

You guys are incredible! In just three days (since Monday night) our Heather and Ian fund has raised over 5K!! This is so wonderful and generous! There have been so many donations coming in and messages of love and it's been a beautiful thing to witness. 

An update on how we're going to use the funds: ToreyMolly Schnepf Helmers, and I have been looking into a local cleaning company (Professional Home Ames) that partners with a national organization (Cleaning for a Reason) to donate cleaning services to families dealing with cancer. They will donate 4 free sessions and then can continue at a discounted rate. Since Heather's chemo+radiation+surgery spanned multiple months last time, we would like to set them up with continuous and regular house cleaning for the entire duration of her treatment (whatever that may be this time around). 

Whatever funds are not used for this will go directly to Heather and Ian to do with as they wish. There will be medical co-pays and cancer related expenses and we'll leave it up to them to decide how to best use these funds. 

We love you, Heather, Ian, Azalea, and Eleanor!!
