In February of 2013, after the birth of their first son, Holly was diagnosed with cervical cancer. In March, doctors moved forward with a radical hysterectomy, with hopes that this would be the effective treatment she needed. In August of 2013, it came back. She completed chemotherapy, radiation, brachytherapy and an intense regimen of chemotherapy. All the while, Holly and Eric kept smiles on their faces and the positive thoughts flowing.
In the time since, their son, Jake was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, and never once have Eric or Holly flinched. This was just another step in their journey, and they embraced it.
Now, in August of 2014 after a biopsy, Holly has been told that her cancer is back. And while Holly and Eric are uncertain about the treatment she will be pursuing, one thing is certain...there aren't many people that can hear Holly's story, and not be touched by it.
As friends, and even strangers, who care about her, we can't fight the fight for her. What we can do, is see if we can raise the funds needed to get the Garza's to Hawaii after she kicks cancer's butt for the THIRD time in two years! Holly visited Hawaii when she was 20, and absolutely fell in love. The sites, the smells, everything about it made her feel so good. So in a time where Holly has an uphill fight ahead of her, I can't think of a better way to "fight" for her, than to help get her back to the place that she loves so much. Our goal is $5,000.00, and I think we can do it! Spread the word, and don't forget every penny helps us to give Holly a tropical vacation worth fighting for!
