Karen’s Treatment

Update posted by Seiko Kim Mariko On Jun 20, 2020

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all doing well.

As I heard from Karen, many of you sent her gifts, went to see her even from a distance, brought her food (some cooked and personally delivered with lovely messages attached), have used FaceTime with her, and sent messages and photos to simply make her day, to smile & laugh. Thank you all so much for your support and prayers and for doing this with us.🥰

Karen is doing well kicking all the current side effects like a spartan💪. 3rd chemotherapy down, 2 more to go. As she continues to have external radiation 5 times a week, she will start having internal radiation every Thursday from next week and her hospital stay might get extended due to this procedure.

An update on the GoGetFunding Stripe service: all donations from the previous provider have now successfully deposited to Karen’s account. And I’m happy to announce that the new GoGetFunding provider, PayPal, is now up and ready to use.

By popular request, we also added a solid target / goal on this site. This goal is the initial projected cost of Karen’s 5 weeks’ medical care at the hospital. Please do note that no pressure to everyone to make an enormous donation to complete the goal. We appreciate any amount that raised to help Karen’s medical cost. Any amount that goes over the funding goal will be put toward any extended stay / future follow-up treatment.

Thank you all so much again.

Keep safe and healthy as we all start living in the new normal.🤗

Hello everyone,

Thank you all for your support and lovely messages for Karen. I shared the fundraiser with her earlier this week, sharing your beautiful messages, and she was surprised and overwhelmed that we all do this for her. She thanks you all so very much for your support and love. She said, “I feel so loved. It certainly reminds me that there are people thinking of me and I wanna fight more and recover fully.”

To everyone who funded via the GoGetFunding site with the current payment provider “Stripe”, thank you all so much for your generous donations. Unfortunately we cannot use Stripe payment services anymore from June 13th, Saturday, due to Stripe Japan crowdfunding rules are now limited. This is between the GoGetFunding website and Stripe’s misunderstanding, so they’re allowing until Friday (today) to use the service. We are currently working on connecting a PayPal account to GoGetFunding site, although this will take some time, and it may not be done in time for seamless transition. In the meantime please use http://paypal.me/SeikoChinnery or Karen’s account.

No cause for alarm, we thought it best to have complete transparency and guarantee 100% of the funds will be put to Karen’s recovery.

Comments or messages for Karen can still be shared via the GoGetFunding site on the comment section or here on our FB group.

I also guarantee to everyone that every amount raised offline will be added to the GoGetFunding site for everyone to see the total amount we raised. To this end, we are also working to get a solid target / goal in place for the funding goal (as many have requested so we can best support Karen!), so this will be unveiled in coming days – stay tuned!

Thank you all so much for your understanding.

If you have any questions please reach out to me or Rob, and thank you for your continued support!
