Help Denise Fight Cancer

We want to tell you about our sister Denise Yurgel who is an amazing women, she is a kind and humble person, has worked hard all her life, has always put others before herself, and has been a true support for our entire family .
      Three years ago, Denise found out that her husband of 43 years of marriage, Eddie, had leukemia. While taking care of him, her mother who was a great support for her passed away in March of 2016. Unfortunately on November 30th 2016 Eddie lost his battle to cancer 2 days before their 44th wedding anniversary. While coping with the loss of her husband and mother, Denise was diagnosed with cancer in April of 2017. She then had major surgery in May followed by chemo-therapy with her last treatment scheduled for December 1st.
      With everything Denise has been through she continued to work to make sure outstanding medical bills for Eddie, household bills and living expenses were paid. Unfortunately, when she started her treatment she was too sick and unable to work and had to take sick leave. Although she had not finished her treatments, she returned to work to ensure she was taking care of her own medical bills as well as other household expenses.     
      The last few years have been emotionally and financially difficult for her. She has unexpected funeral costs, medical costs as well as unexpected car repairs. She drives a 1999 Honda with over 240 K miles with no heat or air conditioning.
      We are trying to raise money to help Denise with the medical and day to day bills, as well as help her get a safe, newer car. We realize people want to help and sometimes don't know where or how to start. We ask that you do what you are comfortable with, whether it's monetary, prayers or sharing her story so others can spread the word. Thank you for taking the time to read our page and please keep Denise in your prayers!
