The friends of the Sweis family are uniting to raise money to help Jackie in her 2nd battle against non-hodgkins lymphoma.

Jackie has had many difficult years. She lost her mother to Colon Cancer 2 1/2 years ago. She was only 61. During her mom's illness, she was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Her family was forced out of their home only 3 months after her treatment was over. She was trying to get her feet. Last year her husband Nick was in a car accident that resulted in his heart stopping for 15 minutes. He has only partially recovered, though he will have permanent brain damage. Jackie has continued to be in a stressful work environment, when in March she was not feeling well. After a 2 day hospital stay, biopsy and multiple tests, it was determined that her cancer was back. Even with health insurance, the bills are piling up. She recently had to put off treatment due to a cracked tooth. Part of this money will help with that repair, it's at least $3000. This family doesn't just need the basics.They are living with family, she doesn't own her own car. Jordan her 11 year old son is going into 6th grade. He needs clothes, $6500 braces, and glasses. Nick her husband is on Oxygen and so much medication that out of pocket is over$100 per month! This money will go to good use. Jackie's goal when she is well is to give back to people who have no one to turn to.
