Ali Nunery is a 31-year-old Cincinnati westsider who, in March 2011, was diagnosed with a rare form of lung cancer called Sarcomatoid Carcinoma. She had a tumor and the bottom third of her right lung removed at that time and started weekly chemotherapy treatments. The inoperable tumors have returned and chemotherapy is no longer an option. She is awaiting news of acceptance into a clinical drug trial in Columbus, OH.
She and her husband, Ben, have been married for two years in May. Their beautiful daughter, Olivia, will celebrate her first birthday in early September.
After college, Ali donated two years to AmeriCorps and worked on her Masters degree. As a school librarian, Ali has spent her time working with kids of all ages. While always donating her spare time to out-reach work in the past, Ali has guided these students as their service club leader. She has cleaned up after Hurricane Katrina, worked at Our Daily Bread over the years, helped care for babies in orphanages in the third world side of Jamaica and helped assemble a library in Mamelodi, Africa.
Ali has tirelessly volunteered to improve the lives of others. Please join in the support to help the Nunerys with their overwhelming medical expenses … and show your love and support to Ali.
ali went to spend her eternal life in heaven on 11.3.11. she fought as hard as she could, but God decided to take her home. please continue to pray for ben, olivia, the tracy family and all the others who loved ali, as they learn to live their lives with her beautiful spirit, instead of her physical being. thanks for everyone for all the support since march 2011. we love you all.
