Cancer Fund for Cheryl Nowak

In August of 2015 my mother, Cheryl Nowak, was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. Thus began what is now an almost two year battle with cancer.  Despite multiple rounds of chemo and radiation, these past two years have seen the cancer spread through her lymphatic system eventually leading to a brain tumor.  In February of 2017 swift action was taken, in the form of surgery, to remove the tumor on her brain. Although the surgery appeared to be successful, it wasnt long before a group of five to six more tumors were discovered in her brain. With surgery no longer an option and the cancers resistance to many forms of chemo, it seems our hope lies in a relatively new drug, Keytruda.

Throughout all of this my sister, Tia Nowak, has remained my mother's indomitable rock. Essentially upheaving her life in Steven's Point, putting her job at risk, and many miles between her and her boyfriend, to be at our mother's side.  Tia's sacrafices can't be overstated.  With her tending to our mother's well being nearly 24 hours of each day, our father unable to work due to a brain aneurysm, and our mother's decreasing condition, there is practically no income to cope with the financial burden. Although my mother has qualified for disability, we are told she won't receive until December.

To continue this fight we are asking friends, family, generous strangers and anybody able or willing, to contribute how ever much or little possible. We would be beyond grateful for any and all support we receive.
