The world is about to lose a great woman. Crystal Masionis of Round Lake, IL is about to lose her fight with cancer.
Crystal has been battling melanoma for a couple years. Just a few weeks ago, she learned it spread to her brain and that it was terminal. She was immediately put on hospice, and this weekend was put into in-patient hospice. She does not have long.
Crystal is a wife and a mother of three children. Her youngest child, Eva, was born with a genetic disorder called CHARGE syndrome. She became an advocate for her daughter's disability. She has given so much of her self for the CHARGE community.
Now, after fighting for the past 7 years for her daughter, she is losing the fight of her life.
A fund has been set up for her husband Dan and their three children. We are not asking for a lot of money, but any that you may be able to give. If not money, at least prayers for the family. The link to the fund is http://www.gofundme.com/Crystal-Masionis. Any other way that you can help would be greatly appreciated.
I also am looking to set up some sort of fundraiser for her family in her name. I am not sure where to start with that, so if you can help with ideas, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
