Beth Elder's Cancer Treatment

We need your help!!! One of our very own, Beth Elder, from Oswego Illinois was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in October 2016. After hundreds of tests and doctors appointments Beth has been told that she needs to be on chemo for the "rest of her life," but her quality of life will diminish greatly. This was heartbreaking news for a 42 year old mother of 4 that is not going to give up her fight for a happy, healthy future and experience all those wonderful dreams, moments and a lifetime of memories with her family.

Beth is a fighter and she will not give up. This is where your help is needed!

Beth and her husband, John,  have decided after much thought and consideration and many sleepless nights that Beth's best chance of survival is to get advanced treatment in Mexico. Beth and John need to leave June 23rd for 3 weeks of intense treatment, so we are up against the race of time.

The treatment, airfare, loss of work time is about
$50,000. Please help us raise money for Beth and her fight against cancer. We all love Beth dearly and want to make sure she is here to see every baseball game, every first day of school,  her 4 children get married, retirement with her husband and everything else we all dream of and hope for.  Please give whatever you can to help save Beth...anything will be so appreciated!

Love and many blessings from one of Beth's many friends,

Allison Petrella
