BANKS - After years of fighting breast cancer, Staci Rizzo's family says that her battle has reached its final stage.

And the Banks community has rallied around the family—recently, and in the past few years—in a big way.

A GoFundMe fundraising campaign to raise funds for Staci's palliative and hospice care was established by Amy Nelson.

Now 15 days in, at least 280 people (as of publishing time of this article) have donated $37,000 to support the family and help pay for medical bills, time off work for Nick, and other expenses that will come up. It's been shared on social media more than a thousand times.
