In July Karol, my sister was diagnosed with lung and brain cancer. Her oncologist gave her 1 year to live WITH treatment, but with a 15% chance of survival for 5 more years if they are able to eliminate the tumors. She began aggressive chemo and radiation therapy Monday, August 12th.

We, her family, are determined to help her beat it!

Karol had just begun a new job and had a new outlook on life. Due to the cancer, Karol has been forced to take an indefinite leave of absence from her job, causing a financial burden on our entire family.

Karol has no health insurance and has no means of income. Her 19 year old daughter (see pictures & video) is working hard to help her mother in every way she can. Taylor is a 3rd year Carthage College student, majoring in Social Work. Her goal one day is to help patients, like my sister, who are burdened with the hardships that horrible diseases and illnesses can cause.

Our family is small. There's just my parents, my sister, my brother, me and my niece. We all help in every way we can, but it isn't adding up.

Karol has worked hard her entire life, as have I. My parents worked hard their whole lives too. We're not deadbeats, we don't live off the system - we are simply people who've been dealt a horrible blow that are asking for help for my sister whom we love very much.

Karol has to pay her rent, utilities, travel back and forth daily to her radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

We're asking that each of you donate $1.00. $1.00 doesn't seem like a lot to a lot of people, but $1.00 from a lot of people can really add up and help out. Can you please?

If you can help with a dollar, with more, with anything - we'd appreciate it. We also greatly appreciate prayers and messages that you can leave for Karol here on this page.

Thank you so much,

The Floyd/Wilson Family
