Donate, and get FREE FRIES!

So... I don't know how many of you know this but I have a truly great boyfriend, who happens to work for a truly great organization called Bareburger - a healthy burger joint that cares about sourcing its food purely and ethically.

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. 

BUT THAT'S NOT ALL. Other franchises got wind of this and started jumping on board, and as of this writing 16 LOCATIONS ARE PARTICIPATING. Holy balls! When I saw the flyers they made I just started to cry. Asking for money has always been difficult, but whenever I've had to do so it was always for a non-profit I worked for - never for myself. So, the fact that the owners of this incredible company have stepped up to help has truly taken my breath away.

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!):

East Village
Murray Hill
Hell's Kitchen
57th St. (This is where Brandon works!)
73rd St.
87th St.
Long Island City
Great Neck
Port Washington
Columbus, Ohio

Note: Those in bold are the original stores that created this fundraiser, so if you have a choice pop by one of them!

I truly cannot even believe this. Thank you, everyone, for making what has been a very dark time have a little bit of lightness.
