Steve Zielinski also known as Crazy Steve from Crazy Steve’s Pickles & Salsa is a dear friend of ours here at ILoveItSpicy. It saddens me to hear the trouble his wife Cathy is presently going through for Breast Cancer. People often do not think about such things until it hits their lives, and when it does, it will chop you down at the knees. I know because my Dad died of Cancer and my Mom is presently going through treatment for Lymphoma. It can be such an emotional drain as you can imagine, but with only partial help from insurance it can also be a financial drain as well. Steve has made a video asking for help and a donation page to help them out. It is a very emotional plea, and I urge you to watch it, and give whatever you can, even a $1 goes a long way. This is my way of helping support a friend and his lovely wife who really needs help, so I hope you will really take it upon yourself to do something even if it is a little bit.Read more
