Holly Villacci 54, recently has been faced with the words no one wants to hear, Cancer.
Holly lives here in Falmouth Maine with her husband Mike and 3 children, Ryan, Heather and Evan.
Her diagnosis is Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), also known as chronic myelogenous leukemia. This type of cancer that starts in certain blood-forming cells of the bone marrow.
The leukemia cells grow and divide, building up in the bone marrow and spilling over into the blood. In time, the cells can also settle in other parts of the body, including the spleen.
CML is a fairly slow growing leukemia, but it can also change into a fast-growing acute leukemia that is hard to treat.
Holly's friends have come together to create this page for Holly and her family. The funds raised will help offset the expenses for deductibles and coinsurance cost.
Holly and the Villacci family, are grateful for the support of family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and the community in helping her achieve a piece of mind during this unwanted endevar and the quality of life.
Holly sends her greatest love to you all, and is thankful for the encouraging words, calls and support from everyone.
