Support Cindy!

Cindy Zickel is the mother of three daughters (Katlin, Jacquelyn and Michelle) and "Yaya" to 6-year-old, Christopher. She is also a beloved friend, second mom, and "Auntie" to MANY.

In February, Cindy was diagnosed with extensive stage small cell lung cancer, a rare and aggressive type of the disease that carries a dismal prognosis. Though it's heartbreaking to see her endure such agony, we are proud to see her fighting so hard for survival!

Thankfully, we are blessed by a huge support network of friends and family that want, so badly, to help.

Unfortunately, the costs associated with cancer treatment for an uninsured individual are insurmountable: medications to manage pain and inflammation, gas to travel 120 miles daily for radiation and chemotherapy, and special dietary needs to prevent extreme weight loss.

Go Fund Me is a way to contribute toward the monthly expenses during this trying and difficult time for the family. Whatever you can give will be welcomed and received with deep appreciation.

We cannot thank you enough for reading Cindy's story, sharing with others and continuing to send positive thoughts and prayers her way!
