I cannot believe I am even setting up this Go fund me account, we are all in shock and completely devastated. Diane Costello Hotchkiss, my sister in law was a very healthy single Mom with 3 daughters all at home in College or working hard to help their Mom make ends meet. Diane has always worked a million hours at work to support herself and her girls. After a tough divorce, she just bought her own house so her girls had a great home to live in. The 4 of them were just getting set up at the new house and Diane had some health concerns so went to the doctor and hospitals for answers. They live in Windsor, Ontario and had been traveling to London, Ontario for more advanced medical treatment until she was told, she has a cyst the size of a softball on her ovary and colon cancer that has spread to her Liver. The liver cancer is stage 4 and she was told it incurable and it's terminal.
Well us  "Hotchkiss family " don't take that answer without a fight. She needs to get treatment at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where they have advanced treatment, clinical trials and more. Diane and her 3 girls need our help. This is going to be a huge financial burden. Diane is a fighter and so are we! So please help Diane fight this cancer and not have to think about losing her home or her kids getting fed. Not to mention all there traveling costs and medical costs. I put $5000 as a goal but this could be so much more, we don't even know yet. Also if you don't want to go thru go fund me, I am setting up a bank account for her and you can PayPal, Venmo, Facebook pay, etc. Most important let's all pray that Diane's second opinion at University of Michigan has better answers and very quickly!
