Cristina's Rally Against Cancer

As many of you know, and for those who don't, at 35 weeks pregnant, our beautiful sister Cristina heard those words you hope to never hear...'You have cancer.' Our niece was born a few weeks early and after tons of doctors visits, tests, and scans, she started chemotherapy for early stage breast cancer less than two weeks after delivery.

Cristina is currently about half way through her treatments, which will be followed by surgery in the fall.

Because of the length of her chemo treatments, the impact that it is having on her health, and the impending surgery once the treatments are over, it will cause her to miss work for, at least, the remainder of the calendar year.  To help lessen this burden on her family, and keep her focused on fighting and recovering, we have set up this GoFundMe page to help.  No contribution to this cause is too small.  Any amount will be considered an act of immense generosity.

Our sister is the strongest and most positive person in the world and we know that she has been, and will continue to finish kicking cancer's ass.
