The family and friends of Kris Stefanac are uniting to help raise money and help her win her battle against IBC. Please show your support!

This fundraiser is to help Kris Stefanac fight Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC). All funds will be used for her medical expenses and to get her the best treatment possible. Thank you!!

At the prime of her life… just 34 years old, happily married, and the mother of two young children; Claire, age 2, and Drazen, age 5 months. Her beautiful world was turned upside down. She was breast feeding Drazen and noticed a lump in her right breast. Her sister in law was battling breast cancer and Kris thankfully persuaded her doctor to peruse the situation since she was originally told it was most likely a clogged duct. She had a mammogram and in April, just one month after her son was born, she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

As a lot of you know Mark lost his mother to Cancer in February at the young age of 67. It seems unfortunately that every family has a loved one/friend that has some type of this terrible disease. When I first heard I thought not Kris. She is the epitome of health, very active, eats great, vegetarian. How could this be??

Her and Mark did their research (still on maternity leave from the birth of their son) and she picked her physician team at UH. She has the best at their game but unfortunately her health insurance has a lot of gaps and the medical bills are starting to pile up.

Cancer is draining both physically and emotionally. The last thing Kris and Mark need is the stress of medical bills. She has had five chemotherapy treatments when we received some devastating news. Her breast cancer is now confirmed to be Inflammatory Breast Cancer. Typically this is a rare, yet very aggressive & advanced form of Breast Cancer, but can be beat!

This is where we need your help. They asked the doctor what the plan of attack was and she was told by her Oncologist that if it was him, he would get to Houston, TX to the MD Anderson Cancer Center as soon as possible.
I know times are tough, but we need your help! We have to get Kris & Mark to Houston as quickly as possible and we don’t know how long they will be there. Any amount that you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Kris has a strong faith and a wonderful support team with her family/friends. There is strength in numbers! And remember… EVERYONE DESERVES A LIFETIME®
