The daughters of Rhonda Wiechert are uniting to raise funds to help our mother's fight against Non-Hodgkins Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma

What started off as a suspected shoulder injury soon became so much more as our mother was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma (PTCL) in September, 2011.
PTCL is a rare form of very aggresive cancer and requires an extensive treatment in the form of chemotherapy, radiation and a stem cell bone marrow transplant to ensure this stubborn cancer does not relapse. Our mother has since undergone 6 chemotherapy treatments, countless tests, scans and biopsys to prepare her for the next leg of her treatment; the stem cell bone marrow transplant. However, we just received news that the lymphoma has not reduced as well as the doctors would like and are putting her in the hospital to administer a second form of chemotherapy in hopes to shrink the lymphoma before the transplant.
Rhonda is the mother of 3 girls and was recently married in the spring of 2011, becoming a stepmother to 7 children. She is also the grandmother to 3 toddlers. Our mother is not able to work much through the treatments and her husband, Mike, is their only source of income. As one can imagine, the tests, scans, & treatments are extremely expensive and the bills are quickly adding up.
Rhonda is in the fight for her life and the bills are one more thing we would like to take off her plate so she can focus on beating this terrible disease. We are all in for the fight! We need our mom and appreciate the prayers, support and donations more than you'll ever know. We can beat this!
God Bless,
