For those of us not blessed to know Cat personally, let me share just a little bit about her... 

My mother is one of the most amazing and supportive people I know. She has helped put my brother and I through college and supported us through the harder times.  She was there for her 4 younger brothers growing up whenever she was needed. Family means more to her than anything, and it shows in every action she takes and every word she shares. She is a loving mother, sister, and wife, and brings an unmatched brightness to the lives of everyone who knows her. 

My mother has been an amazing dental hygienist for over 20 years. Her patients love her and although she would like to continue practicing dental hygiene, the strain it puts on her body is starting to become too much. With carpel tunnel surgery in one wrist already, she has been looking for a new path through real estate. The start up costs for becoming a professional real estate agent are steep, and now that path has come to a screeching halt. 

On January 11th, we recieved news from the doctor that no one ever wants to hear, that she was in fact positive for breast cancer. The news hit our family like a ton of bricks. She has already had surgery to begin with, and next steps include chemotherapy and radiation.

Times ahead will be hard, and though her friends and family will be with her every step of the way, money will be one of the biggest hurdles to overcome. My mom is too humble to ask for help, so this is our first step in helping her. We’ve seen ithe generosity through Gofundme that people around the world give to help others in need.

The money raised will help cover medical expenses and lost wages due to missing work. No donation is too small; every little bit towards our goal helps. 

Doctors are hopeful, and I know that my mom’s story will be one of courage and perseverence, and although the path forward will be arduous, her faith and spirit, along with your help, will get her through this. 

Please, if you are willing and able, donate to her cause, every single dollar helps. If you aren't able, you can help by please sharing her story in any way you can with whoever you can. Please keep her in your prayers, and thank you for giving us the time to read her story.

With much love,
The Varno Family
