Kim Czekalski's family and friends are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against uterine sarcoma. Thank you for your support!

***Update***: Kim passed away Sunday, April 29, surrounded by her family and loved ones at home. She continued to show amazing courage throughout this battle and she will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her. Our deepest sympathies go out to all affected by her loss. Memorial arrangements are pending.

In late November 2011, Kim was diagnosed with stage IV uterine cancer, an extremely rare and aggressive cancer. Kim's diagnosis was shocking to all who know her and devastating to her family. She had been a relatively healthy, young mother of two beautiful children (ages 5yrs and 20mos). Her family, friends, and even her doctors, have been stunned by the aggressive nature of her cancer. But, through it all, Kim continues to fight.

Since November, Kim has demonstrated remarkable courage and grace as she has endured multiple surgeries, countless hospitalizations and aggressive chemotherapy. Moved by her commitment to her children and family, her strong spirit to fight, and her drive to remain positive through her treatment, we created the Czekalski Family Trust to help raise money to pay for medical expenses incurred by the family.

There is no cure for uterine sarcoma, and Kim's disease has rapidly advanced. However, we remain hopeful that she will beat the odds - she is a fighter. Kim has been a stay-at-home mom and while the family is fortunate to have insurance, this has been an enormous battle for the entire family to deal with both mentally and financially. Kim is in the fight of her life and whatever we can do to help relieve some of the financial burden for the family is something we'd welcome the chance to matter how small or large.

If you don't feel comfortable donating online, you can donate by check (Czekalski Family Trust) and send to Educators Credit Union, 4000 W. Loomis Road, Milwaukee, WI 53221.

Thank you all for your donations and support! This one's for Kim!!
