Tonya Sahlstrom is a mother of three young boys, committed wife, loving daughter, sister, granddaughter, cousin and true friend. She has always endeavored to do right by all of her family and friends and has led a life of kindness and generosity. It is now time for us to reciprocate these qualities to her in her time of need. Tonya was diagnosed with Stage Three Breast Cancer in August of 2013. It is an aggressive form of cancer and will warrant intensive treatment for months to come. She will be undergoing chemo-therapy, followed by removal surgery, and then ongoing radiation treatment, all of which may cause her to become physically weak. However, she is a strong, courageous woman and we have no doubts that her astonishing will and positive spirit will remain unscathed. These circumstances have brought us all immense concern, yet we continue to remain hopeful. As Scott is the sole provider of his family of 5 and taking off work, which he is not compensated for, we are hopeful for some help!! In addition to this, until Tonya was diagnosed with breast cancer she had no insurance. Medicaid has stepped in but they pay very little for her treatment the family will ensue overwhelming out-of-pocket medical fees, coupled with the cost of gas for transportation to and from treatments is insurmountable for one family alone, no matter how determined. So the time has come for us to come to the aid of this phenomenal woman. She continues to maintain an immense bravery which will carry her through even the worst stages of treatment, but any sort of financial aid that we can provide her will make a world of difference. Anything you are able give, small or large, would be wholeheartedly appreciated.To some the goal might look over whelming but that is only a fraction of the cost. I had to put an amount for the goal but our goal is to collect as much as we can for them. Please, post a message to the page,we will be passing this along to Tonya. Again, anything you could possibly do to help Tonya and her family through this difficult and unfortunate time would be received with much thanks. Best wishes to all of you, and thank you in advance. :) As family and friends of the Sahlstroms we would like to keep this campaign private until the time we hand over your generous donations.
