Patti’s cancer recovery

My name is Marc, I am the old guy in the background of the photo. My wife, Patti, the beautiful woman next to me, who is also the mother of these two great children in the foreground, was recently diagnosed with Stage IV Small Cell Lung Cancer. The cancer has spread to the lymph nodes, adrenal glands and the brain. Patti has always been the most selfless person I know. Even now, always worried about everyone else despite her own issues or feelings. She is a lovely wife, but an even more wonderful mother always putting her kids first, no matter what.
Patti has impacted so many people’s lives by just being...well....Patti. If you know her, you probably love her and if you don’t know her, you would love her, I promise you.
We know that upcoming treatments will put stress on her which is the last thing that someone healing needs. It is very difficult to ask for help, but sometimes we must rely on friends, family, and even strangers for the help you need. Any help is greatly appreciated as are as many prayers and as much positive thinking as humanly possible. We, Marc, Patti, Ana, and Jimmy, are grateful from the bottoms of our hearts for your help, prayers, blessings, etc.
We are using this site to keep family and friends updated in one place. You can find links to everything related to Patti's journey here, such as meal delivery, fundraisers, journal entries which will provide information about her progress. In addition, you can send messages of encouragement, photos and anything else that you feel will cheer her up.
We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement so very much.
