 MILWAUKEE, WI
In the last five years, my good friend Sandra Klug has successfully fought breast cancer, lost her home (the same home in which she grew up), helped her son through prostate cancer and ongoing back & knee problems, and had to move four times.  She is currently without and searching for a stable place to live.  Now, with her financial resources completely drained, she has just learned that she has a tumor on her right kidney and the cancer may or may not have also spread to her bladder.

In addition to her job in real estate, she has begun selling  her homemade jam, "Shuggy's Sweets," to help make ends meet.  But it's going to take so much more to help get her through this!  Initial medical bills are already totalling more than $12,000.

If you know Sandy, you know how thoughtful she is and eager to help.  Now help me help her pay medical bills and meet housing needs while the cancer and its treatment deprive her of the ability to provide for herself.  Help me show her she is not alone in this fight.  Any amount you can give will be enough and appreciated more than you can know.  Thank you!

From Sandy:

I have 1 more chemo treatment for my bladder tumor to go! Thought we'd be all done only to find out that it will be a maintenance program. In 6 weeks another cystscopy is scheduled. If no tumors or cancer is found, it's a good thing because the chemo is working and I will need another 3 weeks of chemo. So, cystscopy then chemo in my future years. I was doing fine until I received this news! The treatments are very awful for 2 days so am unable to do much of anything those days. And, the treatments are so invasive!
In 2 weeks I had 3 surgeries. ..life is a challenge, but my faith in God has helped carry me through. My faith and my friends for sure! Scott and I miss our neighborhood and friends so much.
Medical bills, etc. are reaching the $50,000 mark which has been devastating.
On a good note, Scott's knees have improved, thank the Lord! His back issues remain and he's been told that he will need extensive back surgery including a spinal fusion in the near future. Meanwhile, the doctor has agreed to have him have spinal injections to help prolong the necessity for spine surgery right away. He's concerned about losing his business accounts. Hopefully, the injections will give him some relief.
On the bright side, I'm so looking forward to planting my vegetable garden. Got the "itch" for sure! We have a nice large and sunny area that will be just perfect! Good for my Shuggy's Sweets projects as well, so all will be perfect for my special relishes and jams!

Please keep us in your prayers and keep in touch!

Your friends,
Scott and Sandy Klug

Sandy's doctor recently discovered and removed a quarter-sized tumor in her bladder. It was cancerous. The cancer is in the lining of her bladder. She will be undergoing chemotherapy for the next 6 weeks. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers!

From Sandy:
Just had my first cystscopy at Froedtert Hospital where another tumor was discovered. They are quite certain it is cancerous and should be removed within the month. Please continue to pray for both Scott and me!

Recently, Sandy and Scott were able to move into a 2 bedroom apartment and are so grateful for that! Sandy is excited that there is space in the yard where she can have a vegetable garden next year. However, their challenges continue in a big way.
Sandy's cancer treatment is going well, but it continues with procedures and accompanying challenges. She is unable to use her car, which needs work for the muffler, brakes, and 2 windows. Unable financially to retire, she needs to renew her real estate license but can't afford the necessary materials and fees. She is feeling discouraged and overwhelmed.
I know there are many good causes to which you can contribute, especially this time of year. Please consider making a difference in this dear lady's life. Merry Christmas!
