A mother's fight

I would like to Tell you about my friend, Julie Kruszka. She is a 52 year old mother of 3 girls. Amanda, 29 who currently resides in Oregon. Logan, 17 a Senior and Emerson (Emme) 14 a freshman at Harper Creek High School, both still living at home.
Julie has worked at MPI Research for 3 years as a Medical Technician. She is loved and respected by all of her co-workers.
Julie is a kind, compassionate loving mother. She is funny and comedic and has the kids laughing at her quirky humor in which she shares with her daughter Emme who is very silly, much like her mom. If you know Julie, You love Julie....it is honestly as simple as that.
2013 has proved to be a difficult year. From March to June Julie had been experiencing fatigue, repeated colds, dizziness and pain. After suffering stroke like symptoms, Julie was rushed to the hospital, where they found a tumor on her brain, adrenal gland and her lung. On June 7th 2013, Julie was Diagnosed With Stage 4 Adenocarcinoma lung cancer. Lung adenocarcinomas usually begin in tissues that lie near the outer parts of the lungs, and may be present for a long time before they cause symptoms and are diagnosed. Adenocarcinoma is the most common form of lung cancer found in women, and is often found in non-smokers.
As a Mother myself, my heart goes out to Julie. It is important that she is in a healthy state of mind to promote healing. Therefore, I am asking for help to reduce her daily worries so she can concentrate on her family and her health. I think everyone can relate to our "everyday" worries a parent, I am asking for donations to help pay medical bills, groceries, school related expenses for the girls, rent, utilities and any expenses she may occur in the process of making sure her house is safe and free of Radon Gas.
Please help this beautiful family by making a donation to help this mother Breathe a little easier. Any amount will help and every penny counts. You can easily donate by clicking the "Donate" button and making a safe secure donation that goes directly to the Kruszka Family. Please feel free to leave words of encouragement for Julie and her family and Prayers are appreciated so Please add Julie and the entire Kruszka family to your prayers. Thank you for taking the time to read Julie's story.
