Faith, Hope, Love, & Gratitude Helps a Local Mother Through her Second Fight Against Cancer After originally, going in for a normal doctor visit because of a pain in her side, Brenda Marquardt was sitting patiently in the waiting room when she received a phone call from her doctor stating she had colon cancer. This news, in that manner, would be a blow to anyone, yet that wasn’t the first time Brenda had heard the words “you have cancer” from a doctor. Twelve years prior she was told she had breast cancer after she discovered a lump near her armpit. Her three children were very young during her first battle with cancer & didn’t quite grasp the whole “cancer thing.” Now the children, ages 14-20, are learning a lot more about cancer & how it effects their entire family. This time the Marquardt family was told the Colon Cancer is Stage 4 & is INCURABLE. Cancer is a hard hit & when you hear the word “incurable” it can take all your wind & crush your spirit, but Brenda isn’t going to let it take her down. She has always persevered with faith, hope, love & gratitude & she isn’t about to stop now. To fight the breast cancer Brenda underwent a mastectomy, chemotherapy & radiation treatments. After a long hard battle, she was given the good news that she was cancer free & to continue with her medications & follow up visits. Even though the cancer was gone, Brenda still had to deal with the side effects & damage the treatments had done to her body. This time around she has been doing extensive research on treatments that will help keep her body & mind healthy as she takes on the disease one more time. To help cover the cost of the Marquardt family’s medical expenses, Brenda’s lifelong friends have set aside a day to “Celebrate Life with Brenda (Brooks) Marquardt” on Saturday December 9th at The Office Bar/Starlite Club W2091 County Rd JJ, Kaukauna, WI 54130 from Noon-10:00 p.m. This event is open to the public. Please Join in! Enjoy Painting Classes, Christmas Bake Sale, Faith, Hope, Love, & Gratitude Apparel Sale, Raffles, Games & many prizes including Autographed Sports Memorabilia from Red Sox David Ortiz & the Green Bay Packers.
