Marta's treatment was fully funded on January 03, 2013.

Marta is a 43-year-old wife and mother with with papillary thyroid cancer. Her doctors are confident that her cancer can be cured with surgery and radiation therapy. Without treatment, Marta could face debilitating symptoms that would prevent her from living a normal life.

Marta has a loving husband and a 3-year-old son she adores. She came to the doctor when she noticed a lump growing on her neck. A biopsy immediately showed that the lump was cancerous.
