Family and friends of cancer survivor Jackie Ladislas are uniting to help raise funds to support her final surgery at Johns Hopkins!

ONLY A SHORT TIME LEFT UNTIL THIS FUNDRAISER IS OVER. WE WILL CLOSE DOWN BEFORE THE END OF THE WEEK SO THAT JACKIE RECIEVES ONLINE FUNDS PRIOR TO HER TRIP TO JOHN'S HOPKINS! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TO YOUR FRIENDS NOW, IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY. THANKS SO MUCH!

Jackie Frederking Ladislas is approaching her 10th surgery, post breast cancer diagnosis. As you can imagine, her bills continue to mount as she approaches her planned final surgery. Though she remains cancer-free, Jackie has experienced terrible, debilitating pain since 2008, which doctors attribute to her being "over-radiated". Jackie will be heading to Johns Hopkins in Baltimore on September 18th in preparation for her September 21st surgery. The surgical procedure is an "intercostal nerve reconstruction", which will numb her pain permanently.

Honestly, Jackie needs our help now more then ever! Funds raised will also help Jackie and a caregiver fly out to Baltimore and back, as well as provide lodging and meals for her anticipated minimum 10 day stay. In fact, the hospital will not perform the surgery without knowing a caregiver will be present to provide physical and moral support, as well as care for her prior and during her trip home.

Jackie greatly looks forward to a pain-free life with her family. Thank you in advance for any support you can give! For those who do not feel comfortable making an online donation, a "Friends of Jackie" account has been set up at Archer Bank (Mount Greenwood Branch), 3435 W. 111th Street, Chicago - (773) 429-9097. Please feel free to share this site with anyone who can add Jackie to their prayers and who may possibly provide some encouragement. God Bless!
