Cathy Murarik Beat Cancer Campaign

On November 23, 2017, our mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, friend, Cathy Yarger Murarik, was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer stage 3C. She was in a clinical trial for her treatment with surgery scheduled for sometime in February. Unfortunately, Cathy had an allergic reaction to the the trial drug and spent the week of Christmas in Magee-Women’s Hospital of UPMC. She still has to have two more rounds of chemo before surgery in February, with four additional rounds of chemo following her surgical recovery.  During her chemo treatments Cathy will be unable to work.  Her family and friends would like to help make this time as easy as possible for her.  Any donations that could  help offset the mounting medical bills she will be acquiring during her treatment would be greatly appreciated.
