We are obliging seeking help for Becky Banks-Cathey in her fight against breast cancer. Help Me Help my Sister.

As the older 'computer savvy' bigger brother, I've come across "Give Forward" in an effort to trying to do a bit more in my part in helping out my thirty-nine year old younger sister.

To know my little sister, you have to know a bit about my immediate family. Becky is "number 6" of six kids as my father would like to refer to us back in the days when he was still alive. My father was an extraordinary man who's accomplishments and stories could rival those of the most fantastic.

During the final years of his life, only a few years after his wife and our mother had passed away, my little sister Becky and my Brother-in-Law Kevin took my father into their home and cared for him till passing five years ago now.

Becky had started out young when getting married and having started a family but soon became a RN and has been actively helping, not only my father during the final years of his life, but the small community where she and her husband currently live. For the love of my father and for my sister, I could never repay her and my brother-in-law for all that they have gave to my Dad during those final years. What I'm attempting to do for her is but a shallow thing in comparison to the love and compassion that she gave to my Dad by the both of them, Kevin and Becky, giving everything they had to care for him till the end.

Becky and her family have been very private about this matter but it is my concern for them that I ask you all to help out in helping me help her and her family get through this ordeal.

She informed us of her diagnosis back in December of 2011 and working with the surgeon and oncologist worked out a treatment plan. In January, Becky was determined to have stage 3 level of breast cancer and has since, under went a double mastectomy. In addition, she has already started chemotherapy and is coming up on her third of six treatements.

I will be working with my older sister, Lilly (Number Four), in setting up an account anyone can donate to or send checks in lieu of other means of contributing. Anything and everything, including prayers and well wishes are greatly appreciated. Thank You All for your time.

Sincerely,
Henry Banks
