My name is Barbara Deering.  I am an actor and a private music and acting teacher.  My family and I live in the Seattle area.  This campaign is for my daughter Lotus.

Lotus is a beautiful, kind, loving woman.  

She has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  

She is only 42.  

Lotus is the mother of 3 and a major bread winner in her household.  

Lotus had insurance with a company who pulled out of Washington and she is no longer covered for her surgeries, chemo, radiation or drug treatments.  Her ability to work, cleaning houses for others, will be greatly impacted for the year ahead.  This is not work you can do while sheltering your system from bacteria and viral infections.

Her first surgery was the 20th of March.  Following surgery we took her on the family vacation we had planned all year. When we returned, she had to have a second surgery before her chemo, radiation and drug treatments began.  The second surgery was also not complete so following her chemo she will undergo a third before radiation begins.  She is expected to be in treatment until Thanksgiving.  

I am hoping to raise money which would allow her to rest and focus on getting well and being with her family until her health is restored.  The ability to continue paying the bills she has always covered, groceries, electric, water, insurance and activities for her children will help us continue to create a steady home environment for her and her younger children as she battles her cancer.  On top of these she now has to shoulder the expense of her treatments and surgeries.

For anyone not wanting to use an on line format, I am opening an account at Key Bank in her name for this purpose.  The account name is Standing With Lotus.

We appreciate any gift you feel led to share.  Your prayers are equally as important and valuable. I will post updates as her treatment progresses.  Thank you for your generosity. God Bless.
