The family and friends of Cindy Viles are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against throat cancer. Please help us raise funds.

Please join Cindy's friends and family in raising funds to help our beautiful friend/family member Cindy Viles as she continues her daily battle and recovery from throat cancer.The best way we would describe her is… A wife and mother of 2, a beautiful person with the most unbelievable, courageous, upbeat and positive attitude and does it with a smile that will melt your heart… just as quick as her blue eyes do. Overall … Cindy is a tough cookie but this is her 3rd battle with cancer. However, this round seems to be the toughest. Cindy needs our love and support as she continues her strong fight AGAIN…

A month ago Cindy's husband noticed that she had a lump on her neck and within a few days it grew in size. With not having medical coverage, she did the best that she could do until she couldn't wait any longer to see a doctor. She was then diagnosed with throat cancer and was scheduled for testing, biopsies and then followed by her surgery 3 weeks later as she lives in a small town in Missouri and their surgery staff was back logged. During the surgery they found that her cancer had spread to her tonsils and her tongue. One of her tonsils was removed along with portion of her tongue. Upon being release from the hospital she was advised that her cancer has spread more that they had originally thought. She now has to wait another 2 weeks before talking to her doctor to schedule yet another surgery to remove her Lymph Nodes from both sides of her neck, remove all of her teeth and also to remove her salivary glands. There has been talk about giving her radiation treatments after second surgery to tackle any cancer that they are not able to take out. Cindy has a long road ahead of her and being from a small town her options for care are very limited.
We’re raising money for Cindy's expenses so she can focus all of her energy and strength on winning this battle, getting on the road to recovery. The money donated will be used to pay for basic necessities, living expenses, and the portion of the treatments/prescriptions/etc… that are not being covered.

Our goal is to help Cindy maintain her focus on the fight against cancer and enjoy the support from friends and family in the coming months. We hope that after hearing her story and seeing her unbelievable spirit in pictures your generous help will get her thru the final chapter of her fight and reach our goal.
It takes just a minute to donate online and is appreciated more than we could say. However, if you prefer to send a check, please contact Sonja at … sonjee16@gmail.com for details. Thank you
