Welcome to Marshay and Brett’s Caring Bridge site where we will keep you updated on our journey with Marshay’s treatment for breast cancer. Here's a greeting from Marshay:

Brett is trying to create a peaceful, supportive environment so that the only thing Marshay needs to focus on during this time is her healing. 

Since the caretaking workload is a lot on Brett’s shoulders, Marshay is concerned about all that Brett is taking on and wants him to be supported in ways that help him, that in turn, helps her too.

Both of us welcome your love and support.  If it’s in your love and pleasure to help us, we ask that you keep your good health and happiness in mind too.  Please give in ways that lift you up and contribute to your own well-being as well.

We will use the journal feature of this site, not the planner/calendar function as our needs change day-to-day.  If you need to coordinate your help with us, please reach out to Brett’s email 
(  or phone 425-766-6851).  You can also use our mailing address at:  541 N 76th St., Seattle, WA 98103
