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.
