Savali Savali, husband of TheRoot.Com columnist Kirsten West-Savalihas been diagnosed with lung cancer. This devastating news rocked their family to the core. He, Kirsten, and their three very young children must move to Texas immediately so that he can be treated at M.D. Anderson, the world-renowned cancer center. This condition is very serious, but the specialists at M. D. Anderson are designing a personalized treatment to fight this terrible disease.
The Savalis are a strong family, guided by love and determination but they need our help. They will live in Houston for at least a year, maybe even longer. This fund is not only to defray medical costs-- which will be formidable-- but also to help with this sudden relocation. They will need to set up house, find childcare, good schools, etc.
As access to healthcare, childcare, and life-saving services are under attack, we have to step up and take care of our own. Kirsten has spent her entire career loving us and defending us in print and in life. Now it's our turn to take care of her and her precious family.
There is a steep road ahead, but let's show them that they are not alone. #TeamSavali #LoveWins
