Welcome Carly!

Lacuna Loft is excited to continue introducing some guest bloggers! These great folks represent a variety of perspectives on the myriad of topics covered here at Lacuna Loft. Before everyone starts really getting into the nitty-gritty of all they have to say, we wanted to introduce them a bit. Without further ado, here is Carly!

Carly McCrory is an Eastern Illinois University alum, big sister, communications director, and cancer survivor. Diagnosed at age 21 with melanoma, Carly has since spent her time sharing her experience with others and raising money for the fight against cancer by participating in several events benefitting the American Cancer Society. She is the Co-Chair of Relay for Life of Douglas County (Illinois) and Co-Founder & Chair of Tuscola Coaches vs. Cancer.

She is also the Co-Founder & Co-President of Douglas County Rotaract, a service club for young men and women ages 18 to 30 who are dedicated to community and international service, and Co-Founder & Co-Chair of the Marilyn Davidson Technology Fund, a fund established to raise money for technology needs in Tuscola CUSD #301. Through the Marilyn Davidson Technology Fund, she works with her Co-Founder to host the Annual Marilyn Davidson High Heel Dash in Tuscola, IL.

In her spare time, she enjoys traveling (recently spent two weeks in New Zealand with her best friends), St. Louis Cardinals games, craft beer, board games (Catan, Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne, the list goes on…), and concerts.

Big fan of: sunscreen, Monical’s Pizza, sweets, politics, vintage furniture, and her family.
