I am a breast cancer patient, involved in dog rescue and working part/full time, who desperately needs help to pay my chemotherapy co-payments!   In October, 2011, I was diagnosed with Stage ll Breast Cancer.  While undergoing my initial chemotherapy treatments, my Stage ll designation changed to Stage IV due to the fact that the cancer had metastasized to my bones! The following summer - 2012, I underwent a double mastectomy after which things seemed to be going fairly well until March of 2013 when (not even a year later) , during a routine exam, doctors discovered a new tumor.  I immediately began a much more aggressive chemotherapy treatments followed by radiation treatments.

I followed this treatment program while still caring for over ten dogs in my home, continuing to be actively involved in rescue as well as working part/full time at my job. Unfortunately, I am alone here in the United States.  My Parents are living overseas, so I am all alone with no other source of financial help.  As you well know, chemotherapy and radiation can be a terrible drain on your health and stamina.

I now have a total insurance co-payment due in the amount of $12,000, which represents a yearly $5,000 co-payment from 2011 through 2013. For 2011 I payed $3000 off. An additional $5,000 co-payment will start in 2014.

I have tried every which way to make ends meet, but I simply cannot afford to pay these outstanding balances to the hospital and to the doctors who have been involved in my care.  I've been haunted by calls from collection agencies and I am now at my wits end.

If anyone reading this message can spare even the smallest amount towards a fund which would be used solely to meet these outstanding co-payments, this would be such a blessing.  I have to worry about paying my hospital bills while I am fighting for my life!

Please, if you can afford anything at all to help me by contributing to this fund, I will be so very, very grateful.  

Thank you and may God bless you for your kind generosity and give you good health
