Give Good Karma a PUSH

As many of you may know, Darlaine de Troyban, is fighting the biggest battle of her life.  Her enemy, all too common unfortunately, is Cancer.  She has an inoperable biliary (liver duct) tumor, cholangiocarcinoma. After a grueling 7-hour surgery and over a month in the hospital with many post surgical complications, her remaining weapons are a remarkable medical team, chemo and radiation, and above all, faith and prayer.  She is currently undergoing chemo, with radiation to follow; a long, challenging road lies ahead of her. Aside from the tough side effects, secondary painful treatments for low blood cell counts,  and the emotional roller coaster of not only her own fight with cancer, but also having her daughter, Jeanine, diagnosed simultaneously with cancer as well (thankfully, now cancer-free and recovering), Darlaine is facing an insurmountable financial burden of medical costs, literally thousands a month currently not covered by her insurance. Due to the rarity of her cancer, there are no foundations or organizations in existence that are able to help subsidize treatment costs. She has many more months of treatment ahead of her.

Darlaine is cringing at the moment because I have gone this route. Those who really know her, certainly can attest that she would never ask for anything for herself, no matter how much it is needed nor how much she is hurting.  I, however, her big mouth little sister, have no issues with this, since I feel all I am doing is giving Good Karma a PUSH in the right direction, so Darlaine can receive some of what she has given out freely, back. Darlaine is one of the most giving human beings I've ever known.  She was an amazing daughter to our parents, supporting them, including financially, through their old age when they were unable to; she is an incredible sister, always there for all of us as the new matriarch of our family; she is a caring and giving mother, wife, and grandmother, aunt, cousin, godmother.....you name it! She was an amazing boss, with so many of her old employees becoming life-long friends. She gave to her community through so many ministries and organizations, like Kairos Prison Ministry, being a catechist for young children, Cursillos, and helping ANYONE who asked in any way she could never asking for anything in return. 

Darlaine is one of my heroes, and an example of faith and fortitude.  Let's honor her with the help she needs.  We so very greatly appreciate any assistance you are able to provide.  GOD BLESS!
