If you can, please help!

One of my friends asked me to pass along a link about her neighbors (who have turned into her friends). Both the husband and the wife were recently diagnosed with cancer within one, two week period in February 2011.

I don't usually ask you guys for help, but please visit their website and help in anyway that you can.

I can't even imagine what life must be like for them and their small daughter.

This is their story:

Elisa and Nathan Bond, two artists both full of charm, humor, talent, zeal, love for each other and their families, are a couple one feels lucky to have in their life. Together for more than six years, Elisa (36) and Nathan (38) currently reside in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn with their 18 month old daughter, Sadie, and their dog Griffin.

Sadly, both were diagnosed with aggressive cancer within just days of each other. Elisa is combating stage 4 metastic breast cancer and Nathan is fighting stage 3 rectal cancer. This young couple - so young and energetic, committed and passionate, dedicated to family and community - has given so much to so many in such a short time. And now, as they face their biggest challenge in life, they need your help and support.


The road ahead for both Elisa and Nathan is long, difficult and complicated. Between a year of multiple rounds of chemotherapy for Elisa, and months of chemotherapy and radiation followed by surgery for Nathan, all while caring for their young daughter, their fight is going to take energy, commitment and a tremendous amount of support.


Please join us, Elisa and Nathan's family and friends, and friend of friends, in supporting their journey in the coming months.

That's so sad! My kindergarten teacher and her husband were diagnosed with state 4 breast and state 3 or 4 prostate cancer within weeks of each other and died 2 weeks part. One was in a comma when the other passed on. That's so super sad!
