On Halloween, Erin Wood was diagnosed with Stage 4 Adrenometastatic Carcinoma cancer in her glands, pancreas, and liver. She was given a few months to live and passed away on 2/5/14. More ...

In memory of Erin Wood

Before Erin passed, she had wanted a memorial brick in the Kobacker Memory Garden for her children. The cost is $1,000 for a full breakfast, and it will be engraved with her name. There's a little compartment for mementos from the family such as pictures of her children, a ring, lighter, and something from her mother.

Donations are also being accepted as a gift to her children in memory of Erin. They were more important to her than anything on this world.

Online donations will be available until February 23, 2014 on the FundRazr account currently set up, and future donations can be sent to the family directly ongoing. $350 was spent on wishes Erin had when she was alive, and $50 is currently in there towards the memorial. It notes that the donations end 2/14/14 for the party that was set up, but it will accept donations until 2/23/14. Please specify which fund you would like your donation to go towards - the memorial or the children.

Below is an archival record of what was previously on this page before Erin passed.

Help our beloved friend Erin Wood. On October 31, 2013, Erin went to the hospital emergency room complaining of pain in her side. What she thought was a pulled muscle ended up being Stage 4 Adrenometastatic Carcinoma. By the time the cancer was found, it had already spread to her adrenal glands, liver, and pancreas.

She was told that traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery are not viable options to battle her cancer due to the type of cell present. She was given only a few months to live, and doctors suggested against seeking treatment saying that it would come at the very high cost of her quality of life.

This fund has been set up to help her enjoy a few wishes including:
- a gathering of all friends on February 16th (her birthday) or sooner if necessary at a local Columbus, Ohio venue
- a funeral with a burial and memorial if this should come to pass so her children have a place to come visit her in future years

So far she has fulfilled these wishes from the fund:
- traveling to her favorite salon
- items for her bed including a lap desk/lamp/back rest
- some money towards medications

Thank you in advance for your compassion and love for Erin.
