Our Mom has stage 4 esophageal cancer. Please donate to assist with expenses and allow her to focus on fighting the fight of her life!

Zeljka, age 54, was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in September of 2010.

Since her diagnosis she has faced many set-backs and challenges, including the cancer spreading to her hip bone and lungs, and not being able to eat even after months of treatment.

Due to her weak state she is unable to work, and as a result has lost her full-time income. With only one income (her husband), and constantly increasing medical bills, it is extremely difficult to even pay normal daily expenses.

Our Mom has gone through 5 weeks of intense chemotherapy and radiation. Before her scheduled surgery to remove the cancerous part of her esophagus, the pre-surgery CT scan showed that the cancer had spread to her hip bone and her lungs. Unfortunately, surgery is no longer an option. Now, she has chemotherapy every two weeks, as well as constant tests and an increasing list of medication. She has the spirit to fight her cancer, but needs everyone’s help to win!

Our hope is that we can help alleviate the financial burden so Mom can concentrate on fighting this battle and not worry about how she will pay for her treatment and her daily living expenses.

Whatever you are able to give will be greatly appreciated, however small. Anything will help!! This website requires us to set a goal but truly the goal is to help as you can. She also needs your prayers and words of encouragement!

Thank you for your generosity and compassion!
