A Home for Carly January 25, 2023

Carly traveled to Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for emergency surgery on May 2, 2022, and has not been able to return home. The house her family was renting, the only home Carly has known, was recently sold and now she doesn’t have a home to go back to. 

Carly has had surgery to remove a tumor and her left eye, chemotherapy, and a bone marrow transplant. Not knowing how long treatment would last or being able to prepare properly for this long of a stay has left the family in a very difficult position. 

The current AirBNB she is living in was rented with the payment sponsored from Nov. 1 - Jan 31. This generous donation was made so that Carly would have a secure location to complete her post-transplant isolation. Extending the lease would require a payment of $9,500 monthly, which is unsustainable for the family. 

The family has been referred to a homeless shelter as the only other option. Carly cannot go into shared housing because of her health status. She is not cleared from isolation post bone marrow transplant. Her immune system has not fully recovered. She currently has the central line in her chest and the feeding tube. She needs to be in a sterile environment. 

Carly is expected to be in NYC until the end of 2023. An unfurnished apartment is about $5000 monthly. The cost to move in includes a security deposit, the first month, AND a broker fee that is equal to the rent. It also would require a minimal amount of everything that is necessary to make a home run. 

Please consider a $1 donation to help the family with the required deposit and furnishings for an apartment near the hospital. You can text HOME4CARLY to (202) 858-1233 to donate from your phone. You can find all other donation links and information at
