Hi my name is Rachel Woodbury, and I thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I was diagnosed with Colon Cancer in August 2005. Since then I had an operation to have a portion of my colon removed. After my initial surgery, I was tested in 2006 and 2007, and my results were negative. It was not until 2012 that my body started to experience pain in what seemed my lower back and left side.

In the spring of 2013, I suffered from heavy mucus buildup, shortness of breath, and excruciating pain in my lungs, back, and both sides of my liver. As a result I went to the Emergency Room at a hospital in Manhattan, and I had a chest X-ray.The results showed that I had multiple lung nodules. A doctor walked over to me with a panicked look on his face, and asked me if I was out of the country? I told him I was not. At first the doctor thought it may have been a viral infection. Since that point I was scheduled to have a lung biopsy, and when I went for my biopsy results on December 2013, I was informed that I had Stage 4 Colon Cancer, which had spread to my lungs.

I have subsequently lost my child care job, and have been getting chemo treatments ever since. I live alone and I'm in desperate need of funds to assist with my medical bills, food, rent, and other necessary living expenses.

I'm a proud woman, and I don't like to ask anyone for help, but in my situation I have no other recourse. With that said, no matter what amount your donation is, it will be highly appreciated. I'm a loving and fearing child of God, and not a fraud. Thanks so much for your support!

God bless you,

Rachel Woodbury
