My sister-in-law, Mary Novak, has begun to fight her battle against her diagnosis of Stage 3 Breast Cancer! She will undergo difficult and aggressive treatment throughout this upcoming year.
  Mary is a TK(transitional Kindergarten) teacher committed to inspiring and preparing her 4yr. old children in the Sacremento area for educational success. Along with her husband Gary they have dedicated their lives to careers that support and value our childrens education and our fragile enviorment.
 As we all know our teachers are underpaid and over-stretched and how during times like this do we expect our teachers to pay for their substitutes out of their own pockets and still meet the demands of their medical and daily expenses.
 It is with this in mind that we reach out and invite you to join us in supporting Mary throughout this incredibly challenging time.  We have set up a GOFUNDME account in her name.  The funds donated will gp directly to the Novak family and provide the additional financial support that is needed.
