Sachem Mom Battling Cancer

I'm asking for help for my beautiful sister Silvana Gaudio Kozak. She is a fellow Sachem mom, a single mother of Evan Kozak who attends Seneca Middle School and in the 6th Grade. My sister is such a strong beautiful person who would go out of her way for anyone. She has had such a trying life. She battled ovarian cancer at 9 years old with heavy chemo and radiation for years. At 27, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to get a double mastectomy and undergo treatment again. Well, that ugly Cancer came back and this time she was just diagnosed with Lung Cancer. And.....noooo....she never ever smoked a cigarette in her life!!! She is  going back into surgery and will have to follow up with her oncologist for treatment.....again. My beautiful sister struck with Cancer 3 times in her life and shes only 44. I am forever grateful if anyone can help her get through this trying time financially as she will not be able to work for quite some time. She needs all the help she can get being she is a single mom, pays rent, food and her own living expenses along with whatever her son needs. No amount is to small. If you cant contribute....please keep my sister in your prayers. With love,
The Gaudio Family.
