My friend Marko is 14 years old. His family came from war torn Sarajevo. His mother Svjetlana (Ceca) was stuck in Sarajevo during a horrible time and survived sniper wounds, hunger and freezing temperatures. She was also pregnant with her oldest son, David, at this time. Luckily, she managed to escape Sarajevo. It was them against the world. After searching for a safe place to raise a family, she settled in Canada where her second son, Marko, was also born. Marko is blessed to have a wonderful mother that continuously gives him unconditional love. Many of Marko's friends enjoy the enormous hospitality that his mother offers. I am lucky to be one of of them.
Marko's mother was diagnosed with ovarian Cancer stage 3 C in May 2015. The doctors told her that she had between 6 months and 6 years left to her life. Marko was 12 at that time. His mother could not give up. She had to fight for life no matter how hard it would be, because people in her life needed her. This is the 2nd year of her fight. Ceca is the most inspirational, caring, and strongest person I know. She's been through hell and back for the ones she loves, and has positively influenced so many lives. She continues to live life to it's fullest, but now needs financial help to keep going. Her family is in dept due to the expensive costs of cancer treatments and they are struggling to afford medication as well as to pay rent.
It would mean so much to me and Marko's family if you helped support Ceca - she needs all of us in this tough time.
