Help a Mamma, kill Cancer

Dena is a hard working mother, and a devoted wife. Four months after having her third child Gabriel, a lemon size lump was found in the left side of her throat. Ultrasaounds rervealed a mass surrounding her thyroid on her left side, and a smaller growth surrounding her radial artery on the right. 
The week after Christmas Dena was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer.
Fortunatley, this cancer is beatable. A surgery to remove the thyroid, followed by raditation treatment should result in a positive outcome. The next few months will be the most challenging time for the Personius family. Dena's husband Jared is a wild land firefighter who is away from the family working overtime much of the year, earning income that is tightly budgeted to get through winter months. The pressure on the family is acute, and the concern is that the radiation treatment will keep Dena from being in close contact to her baby boy and family of five. The amount of funds you choose to donate will go directly towards managing medical costs of surgery and radiation, and also healthy organic cancer fighting foods to nourish Dena and her three young children. Sharing the post on your wall, and praying for Dena Personius is a tremendous help as well, and would be much appreciated.
Dena and Jared are choosing to do everything possible to make this a time of growth and unity for the family, but the pressure and uncertainty are a growing burden and the situation is urgent.
