COCKTAILS FROM HELL
The public is invited to dance and party for a good cause! Kristina Klezcko’s community of family and friends are throwing a fundraising celebration, with a silent auction from 6 to 9pm, and music, drinks and fun on into the night. Restaurant Roy owner Roy Gandy, who employs Kristina as a waitress, is generously donating his wonderful restaurant space and drink proceeds to AKure4K. Co-organizer Nancy Black explains, “Let’s raise some funds to keep our friend Kristina stocked with her holistic meds that are working! She’s doing as well as can be, under the circumstances, and has wonderful treatment options, but needs funding.”
Kristina has been treating her stage IV cancer with a combination of therapies for over 11 years, especially with the care of Dr Han, crediting holistic medicine for her great quality of life and longevity. According to statistics, she’s outlived her death-date by a few years already. The cost of this holistic cancer treatment is staggering, though. She underwent chemo-therapy in 2005, while doing every affordable holistic treatment she could do herself at home. She’s put her heart and soul into the search for a cure, and after years of study has found some incredible possibilities.
Kristina had worked through physical and mental barriers to graduate from the Exotic Animal Training and Management program. Graduating in 2010 with three degrees in animal science didn’t lead to the beloved career she worked for; instead she was told her cancer had returned and she was given a terminal prognosis. Since then she’s been working with Dr Han and other wonderful doctors, successfully maintaining stability. That’s the goal, to return to that stability despite the tragedy and transition of losing her beloved caregiver. She has great ideas and support for this.
There is hope for more time for Kristina. Her oncologist told her she should be the poster child for surviving a terminal disease so well, but she faces a new challenge now, with the cancer in her liver. There are still many treatment options, and effective (but expensive) therapies to continue.
