Our family strongly believes in the power of positivity. Your love and support plays such a huge part in Karen's fight against cancer.

If you've seen the TV show 'Breaking Bad', you know how expensive, scary, and emotional cancer can be, not only to the person but to the family as well. In 2004 our mom was diagnosed with stage 3a breast cancer. Knowing that she had four kids to raise, she underwent chemotherapy treatment, a double mastectomy, not to mention dozens of other tests and reconstructive surgery. It put a very extensive emotional and economical bind on the family, which ultimately lead to bankruptcy.

What was important was that we still had each other.

This past April, we discovered the cancer had come back, and worse. It spread to the lungs and lymph nodes, this time diagnosed as stage 4. Without going into detail on everything that we've lost, we refuse to have our mother Karen be the next! Karen is such an absolutely amazing person and has touched the lives of so many. We can't thank you enough for all the love and support to help her not only fight for her own life, but to inspire the lives of others struggling through cancer and illness as well.
