Help Kirsten Bickert with Medical Expenses

Kirsten Bickert is a 42-year-old married mother of eight children. Her husband is a stay at home dad. He now also drives Kirsten to her appointments. Kirsten is the main source of income for the family. Their children range in age from 7 years old to 18 years old. She is dedicated healthcare professional we have had the privilege of working with in the vaccination clinics over the past year. She has been a nurse since 2007 and loves helping and taking care of people. Kirsten is not only a co-worker but a true friend and family member to both of us, as well as all our colleagues. She is always smiling and willing to help in any way she can.
Kirsten was having some pain and fatigue for a couple of months. She was finally sent to a GI specialist where on December 8th, after some tests it was revealed that she has a mass in her sigmoid colon. This finding was a total shock for her and her family. As the tests continued, Kirsten was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer which has spread to her liver and lungs. Over the last 3 weeks, almost daily Kirsten has had multiple doctor’s appointments, cat scans, pet scans, MRI’s, labs, etc.  As of now, she will begin chemotherapy this week (1/20/2022) and/or other treatment followed by surgery. This diagnosis and the multiple findings will be something that Kirsten will unfortunately have to deal with the rest of her life.
Kirsten is presently an agency employed nurse and does not get vacation or PTO time for any missed days.
When we approached Kirsten about starting a GoFundMe page, she was very humbled and became teary eyed. She could not see herself asking others for help. She reluctantly agreed for us to ask you all to help Kirsten spend as much time with her family and taking care of herself instead of worrying about working so many hours as a nurse.
We are asking you to give to Kirsten and her family any amount you can so that she can spend as much time with her husband and 8 children instead of worrying about coming to work while facing a true battle of life.
