Moving mountains for Christine

It seems like there aren’t enough words to describe how truly incredible Christine Russak is. An established medical professional for over 20 years, Christine is a devoted, passionate mother, daughter, and friend. Her hard work and passion for patient care is undeniable - always putting her patients needs before own. Always smiling, always making jokes, Christine makes the best of any situation. Her fervor for life is infectious, and her personality can light up the darkest places. Christine has moved mountains for her family, friends, and loved ones throughout her life, and is no stranger to adversity. Unfortunately, Christine has recently been diagnosed with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer, and is in dire need of our love and support.  She will be undergoing chemotherapy soon, and will be without work for a long period of time. This is a grueling, financially and emotionally demanding therapy regimen. We are asking family, friends, loved ones, and anyone whose lives Christine has touched for donations to help her and her family during her time of need. Times are tough and money is hard to come by as it seems, so the donation is not about the size but more so about the idea of helping someone who needs our help. For someone who has given so much of herself to the ones she cares about, it is absolutely essential that we do the very same for her. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. With your help and support, we can and will beat this.
