Tonya's Medical Fund

My sister-in-law, Tonya Cyrkin was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma tumor in her spine in 2012 as an outcome from, what was thought to be, minor back surgery. Since that time, she has been through Chemo therapy, radiation, immunotherapy, and SEVERAL courses of medications. Starting in the fall of 2015, she has been progressively declining, and she has now been confined to a wheel chair, unable to take care of her own daily living needs, her family's needs, and had to have a their home re-vamped to accomodate a wheel chair. She's had to rely on her husband and daughter to do pretty much everything for her. She's had several surgeries, procedures, and tests over the last 4 years. The medical bills, including the costly bills to accomodate her wheel chair have been extremely extensive. They've had to even get a bigger, more accomadating car for space to bring the wheel chair with them, and so she can get in and out of the car easier. My brother, niece, and sister-in-law's lives have been turned upside down. They have all been champions in dealing with everything, however the help of people who care for them would not go unappreciated. I know I would be so thankful for any help for my family whom I love so much. I just want to see an easier future for them. God knows they deserve it.
