Fundraiser underway for high school teacher Paige Caldwell
Posted November 22, 2022 at 7:09 pm by Jeff Arnim
Earlier this month, Friday Harbor High School history teacher Paige Caldwell was diagnosed with fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma, a rare form of genetic liver cancer. Paige and her husband, Mark Burkholder, are now running an online fundraiser to help defray the costs of her upcoming treatment, which is expected to include multiple surgeries, radiation, and chemotherapy — and could last until the fall of 2023.
“Any financial support you can offer Paige today will go directly toward her treatment and recovery costs,” Mark says. “Your support will also help offset lost wages that are inevitable during a leave that will stretch through almost an entire school year.”
The fundraiser is nearly 70 percent of the way to its $25,000 goal. Contributions can be made through Paige and Mark’s GoFundMe campaign.
You can also keep up with their journey and leave comments of support on their CaringBridge journal.
You can support the San Juan Update by doing business with our loyal advertisers, and by making a one-time contribution or a recurring donation.
