My Story

Allison Levine, known as Ali, was diagnosed on April 10, 2008 with gastric cancer. Ali ended her courageous battle victorious on Monday, March 9, 2009 at the tender age of 32. This site, her journal & inspirational comments of visitors are a testament to her extraordinary character & compassion. Ali you are dearly loved. We will never forget.

First and foremost, Ali is the most amazing mother to Noah Alexander and wife to Jeremy. They have the most beautiful family. She is a loving daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend and so much more to all of us who love her. The list could go on and on.

Her family and friends can tell you that she is the most caring and considerate person on this planet, always doing and caring for others. Now it is time for all of us to care for Ali. We have created this website because we need to support her and send prayers and love her way.

On April 10, 2008 Allison was diagnosed with a tumor at the tail end of her stomach. The cancer is signet ring cell carcinoma, basically gastric cancer. A very rare form of cancer, seen in Asian populations and older men. Therefore, the news was all the more shocking and puzzling. This is a very aggressive and rapid spreading cancer, so the goal is to get rid of it, before it can take over.

We hope this website can provide a source of comfort for Ali while she is undergoing treatment and recovery. Please feel free to check for updates from Ali and her family and to send her messages of support. Ali, we are loving and praying for you always. Your family and friends.
