EVENT DATE Jul 18, 2015
Our dear friend Karine, loving wife and young mother of three beautiful children, has recently been diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia and breast cancer. To say that this has been shocking and overwhelming is an understatement. She has begun treatment for both of these devastating diseases at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital. We have created this fundraising page, and are planning a fundraiser on Saturday July 18, 2015 at the Knights of Columbus Monsignor William F. Burke Rockaway Council, to ask for your help during this difficult time. According to studies, the AVERAGE cancer patient pays $8,500 a year in expenses not covered by insurance. With two cancers, living in NYC, it's hard to even imagine how quickly Karine's bills will pile up. Through your support, we are looking to alleviate the mounting medical bills, loss of wages and miscellaneous expenses the family will incur, which in turn will allow Karine the peace of mind she needs to focus solely on her recovery.
Karine has always been a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, cousin and friend, enriching the lives of so many throughout her life. Let's repay her kindness and generosity by helping her and her family during this trying time.
Every dollar raised will go directly to the Cook family, so please- whether you know Karine and Dennis from elementary school, their days at CK, college, sports or the wonderful life they have built together in Rockaway, please find it in your heart to help out in any way possible. Anything you can spare will not only be helpful, but greatly appreciated.
