Fundraiser set for family of Grayslake woman losing battle with cancer
You may remember a year ago our own Julian Crews shaved his head to help build awareness for a community fundraising effort in north suburban Grayslake, IL.
But despite valiant efforts and alternative treatments, sadly the mother of three, Yvonne Block is rapidly succumbing to the ravages of cancer.
As Yvonne’s husband and children provide in-home hospice care for her, friends and community members are rallying around this grieving Grayslake family.
To make matters worse, the Block’s have exhausted their personal funds and savings in the desperate effort to extend Yvonne’s life though experimental and alternative treatments not covered by insurance.
As a result, the Block family is in danger of losing their home.
So the community has set up a secure, on-line fundraising website to help defray the family’s medical bills with the goal of raising $15,000.
