After staying home with her girls for a few years, she recently finished nursing school, had taken a job as a nurse, and was on a path to realizing her dream of becoming a midwife.
In September she was hospitalized with pneumonia, and during a CT scan to check her lungs, a cancerous mass was found in her chest. Initially, Gina had a surgery to remove the tumor from her chest, and she planned to have chemo treatments that would result in a cure.
However, through further tests and scans it was discovered in October that Gina has two legions on her liver that are cancerous and inoperable. This means that Gina’s cancer is not curable. The average life expectancy of this cancer is around 2.5 years....but Gina is strong and prepared for a fight.
We would like to raise money to make Gina's fight as easy on her family as possible as both her and Brian will need time off work to fight this aggressive cancer. As little or as much as you can give will be put to use to keep this family comfortable during the fight of their life.
Also, if you would like to participate in the meal train for the family, here is the link to that: https://www.mealtrain.com/trains/583q8y
