Margo's Team,

All of you know Margo Sisco Long, and many of you have been touched by her amazing ability to make so many people she encounters feel loved. Margo has given so much to so many, and now it is our turn to give back to her. This is a fundraiser for Margo to assist with the large unexpected bills she is accumulating while battling breast cancer.

Life has confronted Margo with many difficult obstacles over the years, and she has continued to triumph over these obstacles, while remaining humbled by life’s journey.  Throughout these obstacles she has not asked for assistance, and has continued to support everyone around her.  Recently Margo was given the opportunity to focus on herself, and thought 2014 was finally “her year”…she met her sparkle, Steve, who is now her husband; joined the Air Force to follow her dream of becoming a flight nurse; and moved into her dream home to continue raising her 6 children. Just as she began to settle into this new chapter in her life she was presented with the word CANCER. Margo quickly realized that not only were many of the hopes and dreams she had planned for no longer going to be a reality, but that she was also going to be fighting for her life itself. The baby she and Steve planned to have together, and fulfilling her dream of being a flight nurse with the Air Force were taken away in an instant. And without an opportunity to plan anything she began the fight of her life…  Along with battling the physical symptoms of chemotherapy, attending countless doctors’ appointments, assisting her children in adjusting to the obstacle that has now been presented in their lives as well, Margo is also continuing to work fulltime as a nurse in a level 3 NICU, and her husband is working overtime as a firefighter/paramedic so that they can afford their unexpected bills.

Life presents obstacles to each of us unexpectedly and at what seems to be very inconvenient times.  It is extremely important for all of us during times like these to support each other in the best way we can.  With each card, message, and gift you have given Margo, her strength to fight continues to grow. However, she and Steve still have a long journey ahead of them, and need our assistance during this tremendous battle in their life.  If you are able to assist them with the financial burden they are experiencing while these large unexpected medical expenses accumulate please donate to this fundraiser.

Thank you all for supporting Margo while she is battling breast cancer!
