Steve and Kari ( my parents) are hard working and extremely loving and caring people but have been battered by sickness and financial strain for many years now. My mother, Karen, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1999. After a quick battle and chemo it seemed all was well but the cancer returned in 2009 and she was re-diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer that had spread into the bone and more recently into her lungs and liver. My dad Steve, puts his head down and works as hard as he can to make everything work but recently has had to pay for some of the chemo out of his pocket after exhausting medical aid options. I am starting this fundraiser to give them the means to have a break, take a holiday and address the medical bills that are looming. If you are willing to donate towards this cause our family will be truly grateful.
