Help Becky Stand Tall!


Hello all and THANK YOU for checking out our GoFundMe!
I am writing in regard to our Dear Friend, Mother, Grand Mother... Becky Schoenke.
At 54 beautiful years old Becky went to the doctor for some lower back pain in early September, the path she walked on the way in was not the same one she would come out...  September 8th, 2017 Becky was told she had Lung Cancer metastatic to bone.  Bone metastasis or "bone mets" occurs when cancer cells from the primary tumor relocate to the bone.   
Since this diagnosis Becky has been undergoing regular Chemo & Radiation with a break in-between to recover a bit before the next.   If you know Becky, she is a fighter!  A local to the New Germany area, Mother & Grandmother to 4 children and 2 grandchildren, Becky has spent most of her life caring for her family and others, working at Nursing Homes making sure her loved ones and others were always well taken care of.   Because her Spine has taken on the Cancer, Becky is unable to move around like she used to.  She now relies on a walker or wheelchair to get herself around.  Her family has been working hard in what spare time they have to get her home set up for her new needs.  
NOW IS OUR TIME TO TAKE CARE OF HER!
Due to the original back pain and now her current diagnosis Becky has been out of work since August and without medical insurance at the time, she has mounting Medical and Household bills that regardless to despair need to be paid. Thus the GoFundMe, while we are currently trying to plan a Benefit in Feb. to help raise funds for her family to cover these bills, the need has already begun.  Please donate through the GoFundMe page to help relieve if only a fraction of the struggle for this brave and beautiful lady!  

Becky... WE LOVE YOU & FIGHT FOR YOU!

Thank you to everyone who shares if not your dollars & cents but even a prayer for our loved one to keep hope strong and get healthy.  The road is long but if we pack the bus with love & strength, it will make the ride that much better!

Stay tuned for updates and further Benefit information.
