Funds raised here will help offset the medical bills in Kathryn Engebretsen's cancer treatment. We appreciate your support!

Kathryn Engebretsen is an amazing mother and friend. She has a passion for teaching, genealogy, chocolate, and movie quotes. She also has a rare form of cancer.

In March 2012 Kathy's eye doctor noted that a mole on her eye had changed shape and size. Further tests confirmed that a cancerous tumor was behind the mole. In early May, Kathy underwent a specific radiation treatment for this tumor. We won't know for 6 months if the treatment worked.

However, we need to pay for the treatment. Kathy was one of the many teachers over the last few years that was laid off due to tightening school budgets. Without health insurance, Kathy's procedure will be costly.

Without a full-time teaching position or health insurance, it will be hard for the Engebretsen's to pay for this procedure. Won't you join us in helping this family?
