Wife, Mother, Sister, Daughter and our Dear Friend Michelle has been battling Multiple Sclerosis (which is an immunodeficiency disease) for most of her adult life. Michelle and her husband Bill just celebrated 8 years happily married and now have two children (thanks to dedication and hard work at IVF.) Connor is 2 years and Riley who is 10 months young.
Unfortunately right after Riley was born and Mom still on maternity leave, Covid started threatening. Adaptations, quarantines, staying safe (Especially because of MS) we never thought what would happen next.
Michelle (who will be celebrating her 42nd birthday on Nov 14th) was diagnosed this past July with Stage 4 Lung Cancer that has metastethized to her brain and her spine as well. The neurological combination of conditions Michelle has to battle and fight are eye opening for doctors to fully grasp. The treatment plan consists of multiple aggressive recovery plans that will force Michelle to be a Wonder Woman for herself her family and friends.
Please help support her and the family during this time. These funds will go towards assisting the family with some relief on the mundane day to day activities, hospital, doctor, lab bills, medications, time off of work to go to doctors appointments, transportation, extra day care, healthy meals, stress reliever items. These are just some of the items Michelle and her family will need to get through this unexpected battle.
Michelle and her family cannot be more Grateful and Thankful for all the love generosity support and compassion that you all have shown. Thank You!
As we approach a potential new covid season, The Astarita Family wishes you and your family to stay safe and have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! ❤️
