This is the Help Sylvia KICK Cancer Fund. Donations raised will be used for medical treatment and related expenses not covered by insurance

Sylvia Deriscavage is a woman who is full of life with a contagious energy and a child like essence you can’t help but be captivated by. She’s the type of woman who even if you meet for just a single moment, will have a huge impact on your life.  Known as “Suzie” to her parents; ” Sue” to her late husband and siblings; “Mom” to Joe and Judie, whom she lovingly adopted, as well as numerous foreign exchange students; Grand-Mom to Jenn and her children; Mom-Mom to Katie and her children; BaBa to grand-daughters Ashleigh and Danielle (as well as all their friends); “Mrs. D” to the neighbors; and Miss Sylvia to the children she taught for 27 years.  She has truly impacted so many lives.

Several years ago Sylvia was diagnosed with dementia and Parkinson’s disease, yet she hasn’t for one second let that hold her back from living her life. Recently she was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin’s Follicular Lymphoma, P.E.T. scans show involvement has spread to one of the bones in her back, and the Doctor wants to start Chemo as soon as possible.

It’s hit our family like a tornado. We have been doing everything possible to get the money together to afford treatment, but at the end of the day it just doesn’t cut it. So here we are asking friends, family members, and other compassionate people for help. We know times are tough for everyone, so even if can’t donate a lot, anything would be greatly appreciated. Every dollar helps and it all adds up.

Please keep Sylvia in your thoughts and prayers and hope her journey to wellness is a safe and successful one.
