Please join all friends and family in a full-throttle fund raising effort to raise a minimum of $5,000 for Denny's new cancer treatments at Sloan Kettering in NYC More ...
dear family and friends of denise filera-miksza ~ my name is gregory dibisceglie and i have known denise for 27 years this fall. we met at Rutgers University with a terrific story that's worth sharing someday. as you may or may not know, our beautiful friend denise has recently been diagnosed with IBC - Infamatory Breast Cancer. i had a long and uplifting conversation with denise this weekend about her determination to "win" by going the holistic route at this time at The Schachter Center for Complementary Medicine in Suffern NJ ( http://www.mbschachter.com/) listening to her strategy about her recovery, i feel her approach is 100% right-on given the fact that no one treatment (chemo/radiation/holistic etc) is a guaranteed cure. she trusts that strengthening her body with Vitamin C, Clacium, Magnesium, DMSO and  B-17 infusions along with a regimen of suppliments is the way to go right now and i say - go for it denny with all your heart and soul and we'll all be there to support you every step along the way! LONG STORY SHORT: her expenses will run about 4K per month, almost all out of pocket! she is hoping to complete a minimum of 3 months of treatment to get her through the holidays and assess her health in the new year. ironically, this approach costs 1/10th less than chemo and radiation, but is not covered by insurance. (same old story, cancer is a massive money maker for the insurance and drug companies who'd rather not have anyone to take the holistic route). denny is determined to pay for her own treatment until January when she will evaluate her next course of action. WHAT WE CAN DO: i am hoping you will join me in a full-throttle fund raising effort to raise a minimum of $5,000 before Thanksgiving for Denise to receive her complimentary medicine through the end of January. i know we can do it together and reach out to all who know Denise to show their support too. PLEASE: simply mail any donation directly to denise as funds are needed right now. mail your check made out to Denise Filera-Miksza to her home address by Friday, 11/18/11, when we will tally the total amount we've raised together: Denise Filera-Miksza 11 Orange Ave. Elmwood Park, NJ 07407 i have set up a "Group" on Facebook (Fundraiser for Denise Filera-Miksza - https://www.facebook.com/groups/196634593747500/) to monitor the growth and development of this cause - please join now! ALSO, please forward this message to anyone you know who loves denise as the are a ton of people who are sure to help as well. i am a firm believer that "WITH LOVE ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE"... let's all prove this to be true. p.s. denise knows that i am proposing this effort and 'all is well' :)
