Help Tina Slay Cancer!

Hi, everybody – my name is Mike Albergo and I want to tell you about our friend and my cousin, Tina Amendolara (that’s me with Tina and her twin sister, Gina, in the picture above - Tina is in the middle). As many of you know, she’s been battling Leiomyosarcoma, a very rare cancer, for years now. Leiomyosarcoma is a cancer that attacks soft tissue and you can read all about it here:

I’ve dealt with loved ones fighting cancer myself and people kept asking me, “What can I do?” Well, experience taught me that here’s what we can all do – give a little bit to help Tina and her family be as prepared as possible to win this battle. Having cancer is many things, including expensive; lost wages, missed work, used-up sick days, deductibles for doctor visits, out-of-pocket costs for surgeries, transportation to and from medical visits…all of these add up and only increase the pressure and stress families like Tina’s feel. Last year alone Tina has spent well over $10,000 last year alone. She’d never ask herself so I’m asking for her – all funds go directly to the Amendolaras and I know every little bit helps.

We like to think of Tina as a “Dragonslayer” so let’s make sure she has all the funds she needs so she can focus completely on the battle at hand. Feel free to reach out to Tina personally - she'd love to hear from you!

Love and thanks,

Mike Albergo
