The family and friends of Michelle Tucker-Maddox are uniting to raise money to help her battle Stage IV cancer. Please show your support!

Michelle's current medical expenses total over $67,000 and she's just begun to fight...

This request is on the behalf of my sister-in-law, Michelle Tucker Maddox, who found herself diagnosed with cancer over five years ago. After 5 months of abnormal bleeding Michelle was scheduled to have a hysterectomy only to find out that the cause of the bleeding was because she had adenocarcinoma of the cervix and endometrium staged at 1b1. Adenocarcinoma is a very rapid spreading cancer occurring in the cell tissue that lines glandular types of internal organs, including lungs, breasts, prostate, stomach, liver, pancreas and cervix. Immediately she sought treatment at Rush and after undergoing 5 weeks of radiation treatments, Michelle appeared to be in remission.

Unfortunately in February 2011, working as a nurse Michelle started noticing and recognizing pain and received the news that we all prayed we would not hear again, the cancer has returned and metastasized. Michelle had to quit her job and temporarily moved back to Oklahoma for treatment, but she is now back in Indiana struggling to get insurance in place to continue treatment as she battles this horrible, ugly disease and fights to stay alive to raise her seven year old son, Andrew.

Friends, family and loved ones will be holding a benefit on June 30, 2012 at the Mohawks located at 4040 Calumet Avenue in Hammond from noon to 6:00 pm. We have food, drinks, a live band, dj...bounce house for the kids...Cubs, Sox, Railcat Baseball tickets are just a few items you can win.. and most importantly - Supporting Michelle!!

Today I am asking you for your support to make this fundraising effort a success as the mounting medical and household bills are staggering and the support YOU give now is what she needs to get through this tough time.

Michelle is a strong fighter, but needs all of our prayers, love and support…your generosity is appreciated in any amount as every dollar helps.
