Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer
has impacted Jeanne Ostrowski and her family more than just physically, mentally and emotionally but financially as well.  When I consider all of those challenges, the one others can help with most easily is the financial trouble that comes with fighting Ovarian Cancer.  So, I thought that creating this "gofundme" campaign would help.

A little of the story........
Jeanne (age 48) and her husband, Jim, have been married for almost 30 years and have been blessed with 4 amazing children.   Life with the Ostrowski's is always busy with 4 active teenage kids and both parents working to makes ends meet.  This started in October - Jeanne was working two jobs, getting ready to pick up her seasonal part-time work (job #3) when she noticed that she wasn't feeling well.  She decided to go to urgent care on Sunday, October 29th and was sent immediately to the ER, little did she know her life would never be the same.  On October 30th, she heard the words, "you have cancer" and the doctors said, "time is of the essence."  Three days later she had a major 7 hour surgery.  When she left work the week before, she didn’t realize it would be her last day.  No warning, no heads-up, no time to financially plan for being off of work for 6+ months to complete her aggressive treatment for Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer.   She had major abdominal surgery, subsequent infection with hospitalization, and now IV and IP chemotherapy for 24+ weeks.  Jeanne's plan for return to work is still unknown. 

It is with my every hope that you will consider supporting Jeanne and her family during this challenging time.  I can guarantee that the Ostrowski family would be most grateful and forever appreciative of any help.  Jeanne is strong, she just needs help right now and I ask, actually beg you, to consider donating.  She is the greatest mother, wife, sister, daughter, aunt, friend, co-worker … wait…. she’s just the greatest person ever and anything you can do to help would be fantastic.
