This story is about my beautiful sister-in-law Gabi. She and my brother Matt met while Matt was enlisted in the Marine Corps. After Matt retired they moved to Buffalo and stayed for a couple years until they decided it was time to move out to California where Gabi is from. They packed up their stuff, their lives, and their puppy Ganicus and made the trip across country to be closer to Gabi's family. They got married in  April 2016 at a beautiful farm  with all of their family and friends surrounding them.  

Matt and Gabi are the true example of a happy, strong couple. They will do anything for one another, and it saddens my heart deeply to hear my brother call me and tell my that his wife has been diagnosed with late stage 3 breast cancer and he wishes he could take her place so he doesn't have to see her go through this. This is true love.  

Gabi has been diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer which is very aggressive called Triple Negative invasive ductal carcinoma, grade 3. Stage IIIC. BRCA 1 & 2 negative.  She recently after completing 6 months of chemotherapy had a mastectomy on her left breast on July 27, 2018. During the surgery they found that her tumor was 9 times what they originally thought and therefore had to take out 53 lymph nodes instead of the 5 planned.

*UPDATE: 9/2018* Gabi’s cancer has now progressed to Stage 4. She is staying strong and positive throughout this terrible ordeal. She is currently receiving radiation therapy and her second round of chemo.

Both Matt and Gabi are trying to stay positive and strong but they have a long and stressful road ahead of them. This road will consist of many medical bills, thankfully Matt has health insurance but this will NOT cover a lot of things and as the SOLE income provider for them at this time because of her health we are asking for your help.  They are currently looking to get her in a specific medication but it’s a constant battle with the insurance company.

Any little bit will go to help pay for Gabi's medical bills, and travel expenses getting to and from treatment throughout this process.  If anyone deserves this help it is this couple, they would do this for anyone else in their position, a little goes a long way.
