We recently got word that my 2-time breast cancer surviving mother, Patty Oleshak, is now facing her third battle with cancer. While we wait on more tests and more answers, all we know for sure right now is that this time the cancer has returned to her skull, spine, and ribs. We don't know yet if it's anywhere else, where it started, or how far along it is. She has made the decision to fight and win this battle another time, however we know that the battle will not be an easy or a cheap one. She will not be returning to her job for an undetermined amount of time. When facing a battle like this, money is the last thing anyone should have to worry about. I'd like to raise funds on her behalf to help with household expenses, out of pocket medical costs, transportation costs to and from appointments, and arranging for a housecleaning service for a few months. Fighting cancer is a full time job; let's help her not to worry about leaving her 9-5. In the words of Catherine Pulsifer, "The real point is that we all need help somewhere along life's path whether we think we will or not. And, if you are the one giving and helping, just remember this: no matter what happens later, you will always be secure in the fact knowing that you have remained strong and true to assist those that need your help."
