Stephanie Bloch

  Dear Friends and


                                                          As most of you probably
already know,  Michael and Stephanie
Bloch and their children are going through a very difficult time emotionally
and financially.  Stephanie was recently diagnosed
with a rare type of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy
every other week for the next several months, at memorial Sloan Kettering
Hospital in New York City. After the chemotherapy is done, she will then begin
many rounds of radiation.  Her diagnosis
remains positive, and her chance of recovery is excellent. 


are starting this bridge fund because almost every person we know has been
robbed in some way by this insidious disease. Many have lost loved ones and sometimes
forced into bankruptcy, to reimburse the hospital, doctors and laboratories for
their exorbitant fees.   The fact that
Stephanie cannot work, and contribute financially to her family, is an
extremely overwhelming situation for her. 
This causes her great concern, and anxiety; this could also hinder her
positive attitude and recovery.  The Bloch’s
are being overwhelmed from bills, due to the lapse in coverage from Michael’s
health insurance provider.   Plus the College tuition for their daughter,
Spencer. Stephanie continues to endure the struggles of what her chemotherapy
treatments bring on daily, and weekly.  
Stephanie handles all of the adversity like Superwoman. She never
complains, or asks anyone for anything. 
She just continues to DO for everyone else, even when she has absolutely
no strength.  She continues on as if
nothing in her life has changed.  If you
know Stephanie, you would expect nothing less.


Bloch’s Friends and family continue to provide emotional support for them
during this time of need. Their daughter Spencer is settling in for her
freshmen year at University of Buffalo in Upstate NY. She’s working hard to
remain focused on her studies, even though her heart remains at home with her
mother.    Stephanie’s main concern through all this is NOT
herself, but her husband, and children.  This is an important time for their
daughter to embark on her future.  Stephanie
and Michael would have it no other way.  They are extremely proud of their daughter,
and will continue to support her emotionally and financially so she can
continue and excel in her education. At The University of Buffalo.    Their
son Adam is a sophomore in high school.  Adam
has taken on a large part of the caretaking responsibilities for his mother.
  Adam has been an angel to his mother. 
. Adam and Michael share the everyday duties, as best as they can.
Michael and Stephanie are also so very proud of Adam as well.    Adam remains focused on his studies,
combined with his consistent and arduous athletic training in preparation for
the upcoming baseball season. School, training, and care taking of his
mother.  This situation would be
challenging for anyone, let alone a fifteen-year-old boy. 


 In conclusion, we are asking any of those who
care for The Bloch’s to help.  Any
financial assistance that can be afforded will help them work to clear their growing
financial hurdles.  Whatever is within
the means of those reading this, will be heartfelt and profoundly appreciated.


contributions can and will be anonymous, so there is no pressure to donate, if
you are unable to do so.  Your love and
good wishes are always very appreciated.


We would like to thank all of
those offering support of any type from the bottom of our hearts. 



The Friends of

Stephanie, Michael, Spencer
and Adam Bloch
