Help the Salvucci Family - Cancer Sucks!

Recently, Pat Salvucci went to the doctor for a cough. That cough ended up being fluid in his lungs. That fluid was linked to tumors growing on his lungs.  Those tumors were caused by cancerous tumors on his kidneys.

Pat is scheduled for surgery to remove his kidney and then will undergo chemotherapy to remove the tumors on his lungs. 

It has been a lot for his family, especially his wife, Holly Salvucci to process. Life doesn't stop for cancer. Bills still need to be paid, Holly still needs to go to work. Holly has always worked hard and put her family first. Any donations recieved would be to help Holly pay for things the family needs: Pat's treatments, the electric bill, groceries, or gas to drive back and forth to Boston.

Holly, my mom, has always gone above and beyond for me and for others.  Reaching into her pocket for $5 to donate to a family member fundraising for Polar Plunge or magazines from the preschool her granddaughter goes to. She is the epitome of "giving" and does not always do well accepting the help she needs.

If you know her, she will KILL me for posting this because she is a strong, amazing, hard working woman who would say "I'll find a way, I always find a way", but I'm happy to be part of her way, helping however I can and I know many of you will be happy to help as well.

$10 buys a meal at the hospital while she's visiting my dad.
$50 buys groceries for the week
$100 pays the electric bill
Even just $1 shows you care, any amount you can give would be super appreciated.

If anyone is uncomfortable using the online donation, I'd be happy to meet up with you!

Thank you for your support and prayers for our family.
