Thank you for your interest in helping to support Presley Anderson. To put it simply, Presley is the best person I know.
Throughout her entire life she has been the most selfless, compassionate, loyal, hilarious, strong and kind human – the type of person everyone aspires to be.
In September 2022, our fun-loving, beautiful Presley, received devastating news. She was diagnosed with Stage IV (4) Lung Cancer. Presley is 34, married to the love of her life, Kirk, and they share four beautiful children. She swam competitively since she was a child and was a prized USC swimmer, has never smoked in her life, and experienced no signs or symptoms. Her diagnosis has been met with a wave of emotions and uncertainty. She’s the most important person to so many people – and it’s time for us to show up for her and protect her future, and her family.
There are promising clinical trials and medical treatments available that have shown significant success rates, and we need to make sure that Presley has access to everything she needs. Undoubtedly, the best treatments cost money. And our commitment is to raise as much money as we can to make sure Presley has every resource she needs to fight. Cancer chose the wrong girl.
If you’ve landed on this page then I am sure Presley has touched your life in a positive way. Let’s show her she is not alone. Every donation made will go directly towards Presley’s treatment and the support of her loving family.
We will have ongoing events and fundraisers and update everyone along the way. This is not the reality that anyone could have imagined, but we need to band together and give her the best resources to take her into the future.
Your donation means the world. We are with you Presley, always + forever.
As a note, please be respectful of Presley and her family’s privacy at this time. If you have any immediate questions, feel free to reach out to me (Torrey Sims, email@example.com), or Donna Smailis (firstname.lastname@example.org).

A ‘thank you’ note from Presley
December is here and I am reflecting upon this past year. In the midst of adversity my family has received more love than we could have ever imagined. Normally November comes with an abundance of thankfulness, however this year it hit a little harder. There were several fundraisers held for my family and I this fall and I want to express how appreciative we are. We want to thank everyone who participated in the following events:
- Fight On, Presley Golf Tournament & Fundraiser in Napa
- PG&E Vacation Sales
- Community Concert at Rooster Cellars in Somerset
- Charlie Baldoni’s benefit workout held at Unlock Fitness
- Pumpkins For Presley
- UMHS & EDHS Football Programs Fill the Helmet in downtown Placerville
- Teachers & Families of California Montessori Project in collaboration with Child Life Mommy & LightHouse Fund
- Robinson Custom Design “Playing for Presley” T-Shirts
- And all those who have donated directly to me & the GoFundMe Page
I have heard from close family, friends, long lost friends and even strangers over the past few months letting me know that they are thinking about me and keeping me in their prayers. Please hear me on this one, this is priceless! I know it may feel awkward or uncomfortable to reach out when someone you know is suffering, or maybe you don’t know the right thing to say – but the messages, phone calls, and letters I have received are so thoughtful and it fills me with joy when I read them. This is your reminder to reach out to loved ones this holiday season and let them know how much they mean to you!
With Warm Holiday Wishes,
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
