Madison woman’s family seeks cancer support

May 21, 2019

A Madison family seeks your support in their battle against laryngeal cancer.

Tani Chladek, a young woman from Madison, Wis., was diagnosed with the malignant throat cancer on May 8.

Chladek, a mother of three (ages 1, 3, and 11), is asking for community support for her GoFundMe, as she enters treatment.

Tani Joy’s Support Fund on GoFundMe will help pay for radiation therapy to remove tumors from her vocal chords.

The radiation therapies will continue every day for six weeks, and any money raised by the GoFundMe will pay for missed work, medical expenses, travel costs, childcare, and anything else the family needs during Chladek’s treatment.

Laryngeal cancer describes tumors that form in the larynx, also called the voice box.

Radiation therapy, wherein high-energy beams deliver radiation that kills cancer cells, may be the only treatment necessary for early-stage throat cancers. More serious cases may require additional chemotherapy or surgery.

Chladek is a former Kasson-Mantorville High School student, class of 2006. She is a stay-at-home mom and is working on her bachelor’s degree in Human Resources.
