Join the family and friends of Margaret Gorecki in her battle against breast cancer. All support appreciated!

My sister, Margaret, was diagnosed with triple negative invasive ductal breast carcinoma in September of 2010 at the age of 40. Margaret underwent a mastectomy and endured six long months of brutal chemotherapy, all while continuing to care for her four young children. She maintained her courage and strength through it all and we believed she had won her battle against cancer.
Unfortunately, on June 5, 2012 Margaret was told the devastating news that her cancer had returned. Margaret has what they call a triple negative cancer, which makes her cancer complicated as it limits it responsiveness to treatments. It will not respond to hormonal therapy, so her only chance of beating it is through intensive chemotherapy and radiation. She will begin her fight again on June 18, 2012 when she will once again have surgery. This will be followed by even stronger doses of chemotherapy than last time and finally she will undergo radiation treatments in the hopes that the cancer will be beaten this time.
As we are all well aware of, insurance does not cover all medical costs. Margaret needs to continue raising her children and caring for herself and her home while not working and going through her medical treatments for the next several months. She unfortunately has not fully paid the thousands of dollars of medical copays and deductibles from her first battle with cancer in 2010. These next few months will only add to the financial burdens she has while trying to fight her cancer once again.
Margaret faced her first cancer battle with the grace of an angel. Even while being pumped with chemo, she showed concern and care for her nurses and made sure they took their lunch breaks and put smiles on their faces each week. She has a loving soul and a heartwarming smile. Her laugh is contagious and she is an amazing, strong woman who has been through so much in her young life.
I am praying that she can get some assistance with her financial burdens so that she can have one less thing to be troubled with and she can concentrate on this fight for her life. Her only wish is to be able to see her children grow up.
All thoughts, prayers, and any donation, no matter how small, are appreciated more than anyone can imagine!
