Purple Ribbon for Leiomyosarcoma

Christine Kirsch Cancer Fund

A Pittsburgh woman is fighting a rare form of cancer.
Christine is a loving wife and mother of three young children.

About Christine:
 Christine Giuntini Kirsch, mother of three young children, is battling a rare form of cancer called Leiomyosarcoma (“LMS”). LMS is chemotherapy and radiation resistant. Recently, Chris’ cancer has rapidly metastasized to her lungs in the form of 35 tumors.

Chris has only been able to find one doctor at UPMC who is willing to try surgery. However, even this surgeon said there is very little hope that he will be effective in removing the tumors. LMS has invisible tentacles (cells), which means the surgeon must not only remove the tumors, but a large margin around each tumor. This surgery would likely leave her with very little lung tissue.

Fortunately, with the help of friends on her cancer board, Chris has been given a glimmer of hope. There is no cure, but these tumors can be lasered out of the lung leaving healthy lung tissue, and hopefully adding years to her life. This surgery can only be performed in Germany, and insurance will not cover this procedure. That is why, we ask you to help give Chris a chance to survive and to allow her three wonderful children and heroic husband the gift of having their Mother/Wife with them for every possible moment.
