Michele Krei Breast Cancer fund

Michele Martinson Krei


Hi, this is my wife and best friend Michele and our twin sons Kyle and Hunter. My wife has Breast Cancer, stage and grade 3. Both of our sons are endowed with Down syndrome and Autism.

March 4th 2016 Michele received news that she has Breast Cancer, her goal and ours is to fight and beat this with your help. Here is what she is facing; 12 weeks of chemotherapy followed by double or bilateral mastectomy. Followed by another 12 weeks of chemo, 60 days of radiation, then reconstructive surgery. All in all, she will be out of work for at least 6 months.

We need your help, Michele will be out of work and out of sick pay by the end of March; I work on commission and do not get paid unless I work. I am a man of my word and when Michele said I do, I promised to love her in sickness and good health and I intend to be true to this promise.

Kyle, Hunter and I need your help so that we can pay our bills, keep our home and be here when Michele needs us most, without the worry of financial stress.

Thank you for your prayers and kind thoughts, please share this with your family, friends, coworkers and neighbors. This is the most difficult thing we have ever done, to ask for help; our hope is that this is the smartest thing we have ever done. God Bless.

As with this entire journey, there is good and bad news, wins and set backs. Seems more set backs than wins, but the real win is that Michele continues on her path to become a survivor.

Unfortunately the plan of her going back to work this month, January 2017, isn't going to happen until at least MARCH.

We need your help please, we have managed to live the last 10 months thanks to your generous support and we would like to ask if you have the means and the kindness in your heart to financially support us for 2 more months. We know this is a lot to ask and we would never ask you to put yourselves in a financially bad situation, so please only give if you are able.

Thank you all so much, God Bless all of you.
We thank you for your continued prayers and for sharing this Go Fund Me Page with your friends.
Happy 2017 to all.

Seasons Greetings and Merry Christmas to all; this year has been one of the longest years of our lives and Michele continues to battle.

We thank you all for your support, cards, kind deeds, prayers and food. Without all of you the past 8 months would have taken a greater toll on our lives.

2017 still holds many challenges, Michele has encountered every possible setback imaginable; her doctors are definitely earning their money and have done a world class job with her care.

Michele hopes to return to the friendly skies in February, 2 months behind the original schedule, but we're not complaining as she's still with us and still fighting.

If you are able, and due to the setbacks, we would appreciate your continued donations. We thank you and praise God for the blessings you give.

We wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and God's Blessings. Love, Kelly, Michele, Kyle, Hunter and Grandma Emily.

The first round of chemo is behind us, next comes surgery on July 7th, bilateral or double mastectomy followed by 12 more weeks of chemo then 6 weeks of radiation. We met with the plastic surgeon last week and he explained that we will be his friend for the next 18 months.
All of this without all of you would be a greater burden than it is; our sincerest gratitude to all of you for your prayers, financial support, cards, messages, meals and calls.
We fight this battle everyday, living a life of love that has grown beyond imagination. Our faith is strong, we live, love and laugh and hold you all dear to our hearts.
Be well and God bless you all. Kelly

Week 11, third Chemo is behind her, Michele remains strong in heart, mind and spirit. The genourosity of so many has given her strength and hope, thank you.

One more Chemo treatment then surgery to remove both breasts,then 12 more weeks of Chemo, the hardest and worst are yet to come, but we find strength in all you have done for us. This is the worst and hardest battle, her body will change and bring the biggest emotional, physical and psychological challenge in her fight against cancer.

God Bless

Michele and Kelly, I have to share this story; today my Mom made an outing to a networking meeting that she hasn't been able to attend for a while since she fell and broke her hip. She won the $100 cash pool from the gathering and I burst into tears when I saw that she donated it to your fund! I love my Mama! She knows what it's like to have a daughter with cancer ♥ Paying it forward!

Sweet Michele, I fondly remember how much I was in awe of you when we first met. You shared your story with me and showed me a love and dedication to your family surpassing any person I've ever met. It is because of this that I know you will meet this challenge head on and win this fight. Love you dear girl!
