Organized by: Aimee Kahn

THE STORY:

Our musical brother, Chick Borkowski and his wife Denise are in grave need of our help.

10 years ago, Chick suffered his first heart attack. Since then, he was diagnosed with diabetes, underwent 3 heart procedures and developed atrial fibrillation. Just 4 months ago, Chick suffered another heart attack while caring for his wife, Denise, who had just been diagnosed with a serious form of cancer.

Before Denise’s cancer diagnosis, her job as a visiting nurse had become their primary source of income due to Chick’s failing health. But even before the cancer diagnosis, Denise suffered with Lupus. A debilitating disease that rendered her unable to drive or navigate porch steps and stairways. To overcoming this obstacle, Chick and Denise formed a team and travelled together to her job sites helping each other to do the work necessary to keep the family afloat.

However, when the cancer and enervating treatments left Denise too ill to work…the income stopped. In short order, their financial resources were quickly swept away. Now, the immense physical and emotional suffering caused by this dread disease have been compounded by the haunting stresses of growing mortgage arrearages, aggressive bill collectors and mounting medical expenses.

We never know when tragedy will strike, but when it does, giving people are a blessing.

We urge you to help support these two good people as they struggle through these difficult times.
