The tightly knit North Fork community is coming together to help one of her own as she faces her greatest challenge.

Her friend Michele created a Go Fund Me page for  Linda Mysliborski, of Greenport, to help defray some of her medical bills.

"As most of you know Linda has had a tough year medically. She has beaten colon cancer and is now living with IBD, or inflammatory bowel disease," she wrote. "This is a very painful and debilitating disease yet Linda still manages to work full-time, volunteer as EMT and firefighter for her community and raise a son."

Many of Mysliborski's treatments, procedures and tests are not covered fully by her insurance and her medication is expensive.

"I know times are tough for everyone but I just want to help out someone who gives so much back to others and who really puts others needs before her own. Every little bit will help and I know will be appreciated," Michele wrote.

Of the $3,700 goal set, so far, $400 has been raised.

"The amount I am hoping for is far less than $5,900 she already owes but I know every bit will help," Michele wrote.
