The Christmas season is a season of giving. Suffering is around us…..Let us take heed!

This family is in dire need and so I am putting out an appeal to you, if, in your charity, you can squeeze out something monetary to help them. And please assist them with your prayers!

From Father Z:

“Please, please pray for this faithful Roman Catholic family.
They so desperately need us.
She needs a miracle. She won’t make it without one.
We are praying through Our Lady of Good Success, and through the intercession of Mother Marianna Torres.”


***From the GOFUNDME page:

My brother’s wife, Michelle, recently learned that she has pancreatic cancer. At 21 weeks pregnant, she underwent major surgery on November 10th, 2015 to remove her spleen and 50% of her pancreas. Michelle has been recovering slowly while their baby girl continues to thrive and grow in utero. The baby is due March 25th, 2016. The doctors informed Tim and Michelle that this is a very aggressive form of cancer which remains active. They are recommending intensive cancer treatments after the baby is born.

Their youngest child was born March 2015 with Down’s Syndrome. He participates in the Early Therapy Intervention Program bi-weekly and is a very happy 9 month-old who has been a real joy to their family! Next in line is his three-year old sister who loves to keep up with the older girls.

Michelle homeschools the two oldest girls, who are very good students. Since Michelle’s surgery, it has been necessary to have additional assistance in the home during the week so that Tim may continue working to provide for the family along with maintaining their health insurance.

Their parish community has been very supportive to the family during this time; Tim and Michelle are extremely grateful for their kindness and generous donations of food, prayers, and childcare. The Cascios are members of St. Stanislaus parish in Milwaukee:

Along with her excellent doctors, Michelle has entrusted her medical condition to Our Lady of Good Success through the intercession of Mother Mariana Francisca de Jesus Torres. The novena to Our Lady of Good Success is included below if you would like to join them in prayer.

Please help support the Cascio family through your prayers and, if possible, financial contributions. Your donations will be used for medical expenses, home and child care needs, and the future welfare of the family. All donations will be transferred directly to Tim.
