Family, friends set up account to help Phinney family with cancer expenses

November 22nd, 2011 · No Comments

Family and friends of Suzanne Pierce have set up an account to help the long-time Phinney Ridge resident with medical expenses after she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia last Friday. She starts chemotherapy tomorrow.

Pierce’s sister-in-law, Susan Pierce, also a Phinney resident, tells us that Suzanne is the sole breadwinner for her family.

Suzanne works for the UW. While they do have health insurance which will cover 80% of the medical bills, they do not have short term disability coverage, which would have covered living expenses such as house payments, garbage, sewer, etc. We have set up a “Chip In” account for Suzanne and Jim and I would like to share this information with the broadest community possible.

The Chip In website for Suzanne Pierce is: http://suzannepiercefund.chipin.com/
