Bucks for Barb

Benefit tomorrow at Bourbon Street. 1-6 p.m. See below:

In January 2008, Barbara Szykowny, was diagnosed with small cell Cancer, which was sited in her lung. Later, she would find that the cancer spread to her liver, parts of her spine, and hips.

Barbara has been enduring chemotherapy and radiation for the last several months and continues to undergo these treatments today. Aside, from the chemotherapy and radiation treatments, she continues to undergo testing on a regular basis to monitor her cancer. These tests include, bone scans, MRI’s, blood tests and doctor visits. These treatments, tests and visits are costly and insurance doesn’t cover much.

Family and friends have rallied together to form a benefit called “BUCKS FOR BARB” to help Barbara cover the astronomical medical bills during the course of Barbara’s heroic journey with cancer. Although, Barbara will never be cured from this type of cancer, this is a battle she will continue to fight everyday for the rest of her life.

Barbara (Colby/Sparr) is married to David Szykowny. Barbara is the mother of four loving children and the grandmother of eight. She lives in Mt. Greenwood, Illinois with her family. To help alleviate worrisome medical expenses, a benefit is being held.
