The Noel Family's fight against cancer

Don and Selga Noel are loving, compassionate parents of Derek and Justin Noel from Omaha, NE. Don was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colorectal cancer November 2013. He's been fighting this battle hard with heavy chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Several months after his diagnosis, the news came that his son Derek, 23, has a rare Synovial Sarcoma in his foot that usually only effects people in their twenties. The good news is that the cancer did not spread, but he had to have his leg amputated below his knee on April 4th. Derek works, got his degree from the University of Nebraska, and loves to play sports. As if things were not bad enough, Derek's mom, Selga, has been diagnosed with breast cancer that is past the stages of any kind of surgery. Being the amazing mother she is, she has not dealt with her own cancer because she has wanted to put all of her energy towards her son's cancer and surgery. My aunt, uncle, and cousin need our help. Selga, Don, and Derek are obviousy unable to work due to their cancer and could really use financial assistance for medical bills, food, and care. Any dollar amount would be greatly appreciated for this loving family. Don and Selga have dedicated their married life to raise their two boys, Justin and Derek. Please help us relieve some of their financial burden. Also, please lift this family up in your thoughts and prayers whenever possible.
Thank you,
Angela MacFarland (Niece and Cousin of the Noel Family)
