How You Can Help

So many wonderful people have asked me what they can do to help as I navigate this devastating diagnosis. So I’ve put together this list of things that I will need as I head into treatment. 


You can donate via my Go Fund Me account here:

I will be using any money raised to help with lost wages as I go through treatment and to handle any medical expenses that might not be covered. It will also relieve some of the pressure off Brandon from having to carry so much while I’m in treatment.


• Gift Certificates for massage therapy, facials, pampering, healing
• Amazon gift cards (to buy products that will help with my treatment)
• Starbucks gift cards (because I will never give up on caffeine)
• Seamless gift cards (send to email address "")
• A gift of housecleaning. I have a wonderful cleaner who charges $80 for a session, and if you want to send me a check earmarked for that, that would be amazing.
• Anything you think might brighten my day (I love handmade/artisan stuff - Etsy, etc)

My address:

165 E 87th Street #3FW
New York, NY 10128

Mail & Email:

I love getting cards and things in the mail, so anything you want to send would be appreciated.

I also appreciate cute animal videos that make me laugh, which you can email to or text to 917-574-0417.

Thank you so much for helping me manage this diagnosis with grace, ease, and a little bit of fun. It means the world to me.

  1. So glad you posted this!!! Expect things to come!

  2. I only know you through Instagram and I have always loved loved loved (3 loves. this is big) your uplifting posts about acting and your positive energy all around. I cannot imagine the fear and toll this has taken over you and your family but one of the things i do well is make people laugh. In hospitals, in bathrooms, when they are sick, and best of all at the most inappropriate times. I am going to try & shine some light and good vibes your way while attempting to make you laugh. I just want to say I am so sorry for what you are going through & I am a damn true believer of miracles. It DOES happen. Oh shit my name is Randi @randeeactor27 because handles seem to be our legal names now. Gd luck with the surgery, prayers sent your way for the 19th. �� Randi (i know I fool everyone with the RANDEE spelling)

  3. Hi Erin. I only know you through Instagram but I have always loved loved loved (3 loves) your uplifting posts on acting and all around gd vibes. I am so sorry for all you are going through, I sometimes wonder why good people go through bad things. I dont know what I can do except help you out a bit with a donation but more than that I can attempt to make you laugh. Or chuckle. Or I'd settle for a smile, I hope you will too. My claim to fame is I tend to do it at inappropriate times. But actually that can be funny. Right??? My prayers go out to you on the 19th - wishing you a successful surgery (sounds like an oxymoron right???) quick recovery and a really cute dr (see. Inappropriate?) Of course Im kidding. Sending my best wishes for your strength and health ����

  4. Thank you for sharing this, for allowing yourself to feel and share the despair and betrayal and allowing us to know, so that... I know. And I can share my love. Even w your beautiful, painful honesty, I can’t imagine what you’re going through, but I’ll try. You are in my thoughts. Big HUg.
