Kathy Sanders is fighting breast cancer for the second time. As if getting breast cancer once in your life isn't bad enough, Kathy Sanders, wife, mother, and grandmother, is in the middle of another fight for her life.

Kathy has spent her entire life giving to others, first to her own three children, and then to other people's children. At the age of 50-something Kathy earned her Master's Degree in Education adding to her Bachelor’s Degree in Content Mastery. She and her husband Martin have mortgaged everything to provide a learning center devoted to changing the lives of children with learning differences. Their dreams have been realized. Everyday children are being equipped with the tools they need to learn, grow and over come. Nine months ago doctors told Kathy that her 5 years of cancer freedom had ended. The cancer returned and was much more extensive than first thought. After radiation, chemo, and a double mastectomy had taken everything from her; the doctors had more challenging news Kathy had yet a second type of cancer and the extent of the disease is not yet clear.

What is clear is that the Sanders Family can't afford these treatments. The four hour drives to MD Anderson in Houston, Texas, and the motel stays are unsustainable. They have used ever drop of saving, maxed every credit limit and sold every last valuable.

This family is orginally from Pittsburgh, Pa and are HUGE Steeler fans. Let's show some team support for folks like these who are on the front lines everyday fighting this disease. Everything is on the line for this family. These folks need our help! It's time to pay it forward!
