Dina Zlotnik and her wonderful husband Mark Hakman need your help! Dina is a loving mother,grandmother and devoted wife. Dina is the type of person who is known for her outgoing,energetic,generous and loving personality. Anyone who knows her has seen this from their experience with her. She is never one to ask for help. Her door is always open to helping others but now she needs our help. Her life depends upon it!
Dina has had to battle Ovarian & Kidney Cancer a couple of years ago and unfortunately the Ovarian has returned and is stage 3. As I am sure so many of our friends have either had Cancer, have a family member with it, or just know of someone. It can be a tough battle to say the least. The medical bills are through the roof and doing any therapies that are not FDA approved are not covered by insurance. It's sad because there are many therapies that are used around the world and have far better success rates than the current protocol of radiation and chemo.
The last round of chemo that Dina had caused many life changing side effects ranging from her teeth falling out, loss of hair, neuropathy and brain fog to name just a few. The next round is said to be even tougher and we fear the worst from the severe side effects of Chemo.
With your donations Dina will be able to have alternative therapies that have a very good success rate at fighting this type of very aggressive cancer. We are praying that this will save her life.
At this time, Dina's family and closest friends are making an emotional plea. Please come together and donate anything you can to assist with the cost of treatment and help Dina kick this CANCERS ASS once and for all!
Dina and her family will be forever grateful .
We will post updates on her progress .

Thank you so very much!

Hi Everyone,
Would like to give you all a quick update on Dina..
Dina got her most recent PET scan results and things are looking great. Cancer has not spread or grown!!
This is very good news! Dina is back in Mexico receiving her second round of treatments which once again will work on boosting her immunity and not giving any of those cancer cells a chance!! This treatment has been a complete game changer for Dina! There is tons of hope and healing going on here!! Thanks to all of you who have all so generously donated and shared her story her treatment has been possible!To say we are grateful does not even skim the surface of our deep gratitude !! You are all amazing! I am going to make a plea to keep sharing Dina's story so that we can continue to raise funds. No amount is too little. Dina's protocol is very expensive and none of it is covered by any insurance. So please share.
Thank you
With deepest gratitude

Hi Everyone,
Wanted to give you all an update on how Dina is doing.
She has returned from the Oasis of Hope in Mexico after her first round of treatments. She is doing very well and will be following the doctors protocol until she will return in February for the next round of treatments. We are very optimistic about the final outcome but will not know of any results till sometime in late Feb. I will keep you all posted.
I cannot thank you all enough for the outpouring of support and love. We could not have made it this far without you all! We will continue to raise funds for the next round of treatments so please if you can keep sharing. It is so deeply appreciated!
Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and a very Happy New Year! In good health, peace and love !
