SPARTA, NJ – A Sparta widow, mother of two and currently battling Stage 4 cancer is looking for support from the community. She is in a contest for a free roof and needs people to vote for her to win the No Roof Left Behind prize from Jeff Alte, Jr. Roofing and Siding contractor.
In January 2002 Kathy Kwasnik’s husband of 15 years died, leaving her with a six and three year old. Kwasnik works at a local non-profit helping preschool children.
Kwasnik suffered a seizure in 2018 and was diagnosed with a brain tumor. She later found out it was metastatic uterine cancer.
“Any spare money I had has had to go toward treatments and medical care,” Kwasnik said. She said her roof is old and she is afraid it may fail.
People can cast their vote for Kwasnik through this link until August 12. The winner will be announced on August 20 according to the contractor.
“I have been thankful to stay in my home through the help of many but have not been able to do larger jobs like roof replacement,” Kwasnik said.
