The family & friends of Becky McHenry are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against Glioblastoma. Please show your support!

Becky was diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastoma on November 11, 2011. Glioblastoma is the most aggressive malignant brain tumor found in humans. After not feeling well for several weeks and thinking it was just the flu, a diagnosis of Glioblastoma was quite a shock.

The current treatment plan is to shrink the tumors to a point where they no longer or minimally effect the quality of her life. The treatment will include rounds of radiation (6 weeks of daily radiation treatment) and inclusion in clinical trials.

As you can imagine, this unexpected crisis will take quite a toll on Becky and her family, emotionally and financially. As a teacher sick leave which would allow her to continue to receive a pay check to cover many crucial expenses- like her mortgage is limited.

Becky is the mother of 3 wonderful children (Angie, Jessie and Marty) and the proud grandmother of Madie, Ryan, Ellie, Sopie and Izzy.

Becky has dedicated her life to education. She has helped so many students excel in reading, writing and social studies.

Becky is continually telling us that she is going to live until she is 95 yrs old so this cancer really doesn't stand a chance against her determination!

All your generous contributions, thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated!!

The McHenry & Schweitzer Family and Friends
