Our hearts are heavy as we reach out to the community that Kathie has done so much for, we are asking for your help. Over that last two years or so Kathie had some unexplained randomized pain in her abdomen, after visits to and from her healthcare providers the results were always inconclusive. When a sudden random pain started last week she was given an answer to why she felt this pain and was diagnosed with CML- Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. The initial overwhelming diagnosis was greeted with shock but as we all know Kathie, while shocked, was ready to fight. So we stand here with her in her battle, while she can not beat this type of cancer she has the gift of modern day medicine to keep it suppressed and that is what we need your help with. Kathie is a hard worker, a dedicated mother, and has done so much for the community, with the ability to have life saving medication also comes the responsibility to bare its costs. We are asking for donations to aid in helping with her medical needs, Kathie will need to adapt to some changes with this new lifestyle, she will need help with some day to day tasks and for several days take time off to get to a balance, between work and managing appointments etc. While we understand that not everyone can always help, any little is very much appreciated and with some of the pills that are needed 2 to 3 dollars makes the difference for a dose. We pray that God will bless your donation ten fold and bring you abundance in your charity. Thank you for your time in reading this and helping such a strong women in her time of need. We use the Cardinal as an image of remembrance for someone who was so special in both Kathie's life and still watches over her today, Leo DiGioia. He is a rock that we still use to anchor and seek guidance from.
