Vanessa Zialcita was my classmate in elementary at Miriam. She is 35 years old and was enjoying life with family and her 7 year-old son.
However, last August 2018, she was diagnosed with stomach cancer and is now admitted at East Avenue Medical Center for medical management. She has lost a lot of weight but is currently stable. Due to depleted funds, we are knocking on your good hearts to help in raising money for her treatment. The doctors plan for her to undergo abdominal CT scan to assess the spread of the cancer, then surgery to place a feeding tube in the small intestines for nutritional upbuilding, and ultimately, chemotherapy once she has gained weight.
If you could support her by making a donation and then sharing her story with your network, we would greatly appreciate it. Money can be tight but please know that any amount will help in her treatment. Let us know if you have any questions and we'll be happy to answer them.
