Kukus Family in Breckenridge

A very good friend of mine is battling stage 4, in-operable stomach cancer. Cyndy Kukus may be the bravest person I know. I used to work with Cyndy at K99 and currently work with her husband Josh. They met at the radio station. Josh is the guy sitting at the front desk when you come to pick up prizes. Cyndy used to have that job.  Brian and I consider Josh a little brother and we love Cyndy equally. It absolutely breaks my heart that their family is faced with fighting cancer at such a young age.

Cyndy’s Story in Her Own Words:

I’m a 32 year old mom of 2, wife, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. I was diagnosed with stage 3 stomach cancer on April 24th, 2013.  I endured numerous rounds of chemo and a major surgery where they removed half of my stomach, part of my esophagus, and part of my diaphragm.  After I completed chemo on December 31st, 2013 my next PET scan showed that I was finally cancer free!  We rejoiced and life slowly returned to normal.  In May of 2014, I got sick again and I noticed a lump in my abdomen.  I learned I had a large mass on my right ovary.  My stomach cancer had spread and now was stage 4.  They couldn’t remove the mass without compromising my other organs…my life.  After being released on May 30th, I learned that the tumor was too aggressive for further treatment.  My oncologist told me that I was going to have weeks, possibly months, to live and I needed to go home and spend as much quality time with my family as I possibly could.  There is nothing they could do.  This was almost 2 months ago.  Although I know what the doctor said, I am not giving up!  We are truly praying for a miracle but are also preparing ourselves the best we can.  One thing holds true…this isn’t over and we are fighting until the very end.
