Kevin Williams of the Shore Sports Network brought this story to my attention. He's already shared it through our sister station WOBM, but the more people that can hear about this, the better.

Colette Gruber is a 41-year old Beachwood woman, a single mother of five children ages 2-21.

Just over a year ago Colette was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent a partial mastectomy with reconstruction and had 12 lymph nodes removed and all indications were that she was cancer-free. However, the cancer came back, with a vengeance. A recently PET scan confirmed that Colette has stage 4 metastatic cancer which has spread to different parts of her body.

Within the last week Colette’s cousin Kristie Marino created a page on youcaring.com which is a free online medical fundraising site described as a “compassionate crowdfunding platform.”  The goal is $50,000 and they are about one-third there.

A Zumbathon to benefit the cause will be held on Sunday, April 30 at Toms River Fitness from 5pm–7pm.

By helping Colette you are also helping Alyssia, Michael, Khloe, Brody and Kole, the five most important people in her life and the driving force behind her planned victory over cancer.
