Help Support Donna with her Battle!

My sister, Donna Karwacki has been diagnosed with cancer.  For those of you who do not know Donna personally, she is an extremely talented artist, seamstress, and a very creative person.  She has made all of our families grandchildren, clothes, bibs, burp clothes, blankets and much, much, more.  I know many of you have the Baltimore Raven Koozies or perhaps the Baltimore Oriole Koozies that she has made.  She is also well known for her purses that she has quilted and sewn out of rope as well.  We come from a family of 4 girls, she has two daughters, a step daughter, step son and two beautiful granddaughters.  It was extremely difficult to prepare everyone for the news, but now that we all know, it is time to move forward to do whatever we can to keep her here for as long as possible.  The cancer has been found in her lung, her spinal cord and lymphnodes.  It is stage IV and she is to begin treatment very quickly.  They have estimated her time frame at approximately one year and possibly longer with chemotherapy.  As we all know, the rise of health care coverage and the amounts that we have to pay out of pocket has risen considerably over the past several years.  In order to help her get the full amount of treatment to extend her life as long as possible, to spend as much time as possible with her children, grandchildren and family, we will need to raise funds to help with the cost of medical treatment, prescriptions, diagnostic tests needed, etc.  We know in these difficult economic times it is extremely hard for everyone to make a donation.  We greatly appreciate anything that anyone can do to help.  We are putting this together to hopefully raise $25,000.00 or more if possible.  Please help us so that we may enjoy many, many more wonderful days as a family.

Thank you for your time of going to the website and reading our story, we are sincerely thankful!
