SADDLE BROOK, N.J. – The community is rallying around a Saddle Brook mother battling colon cancer.
Maria Mack, a Lodi native, was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer in 2013. Her condition has recently “taken a drastic turn,” and chemotherapy has stopped working, according to a GoFundMe page created to raise funds for treatment at an alternative cancer research center.
“They are making great strides in saving lives, although they are not covered by modern insurance leaving the treatment very expensive and making it very difficult for us as a family to keep up,” the page states
The page was created Friday and had raised more than $2,000 by Monday afternoon.
