The people of Silver Spring and beyond blew any expectations I had clear out of the water. Within the first week, we had raised over $3,000. By the end of three weeks, friends, family and neighbors had raised more than $4,500!
I can't thank this community enough for the incredible support, love and generosity you've shown to Bethany, Jarrod and the broader Silver Spring neighborhood.
The funds raised will help relieve Bethany and her husband and primary caretaker, Jarrod, from the financial burden of acupuncture and massage treatments, which Bethany's cancer doctors have recommended. Additionally, because this fund is inspired by Bethany, there is a share-the-love component. Third Space Wellness will be donating treatments or services to someone of Bethany's choice, and I'll be donating a family photo session to a family of Bethany's choice.
To those who donated and helped spread the word, thank you. You've made a difference in so many beautiful and loving ways, and your generosity is truly appreciated.
