On November 25th 2016, on Black Friday, my cousin's wife Silvia, 40, was diagnosed with breast cancer.
The cancer has the size of 3cm ∅ and has spread into the right lymph knods and there are also cell anomalies in the other breast (more test results are coming).
Silvia is a wife and a mother to six wonderful children. Four girls, and two boys. The oldest kid is 15, the youngest 2 years old.
Her diagnose is a horrible shock to us all !
She is know forcing surgery before christmas and chemo therapy right afterwards.
My Cousin, her Husband (39) had a serious heart attack this year (June 2016) and a few smaller ones. He had weeks of rehabilation.
He lost his job and isn't able to work again as a builder. Every excercise causes heart rhythmic problems, which is terrible for him and the family, since he was the strongest of the family. And now his loving wife was diagnosed with cancer.
After my cousins heart attack, his wife Silvia wanted to find a job, to bring the money into the family. But now she's unable and the family is in serious lack of money.
Not only it's christmas around the corner, they also don't know how to pay the bills (especially a huge back pay of electricity bill)
The help from me and within the additional family members is exhausted, and we really looking for help. Every pound counts and will help my cousins family and his children to get through this hard time. Since they need all their energy, strenght and thoughts to stay together as a loving family, without the trouble of an upcoming financial disaster.
Thank you all for reading and considering Silvia's long road ahead. PLEASE help spread the word by sharing this page with your friends and family.
