On February 26, 2014 Mary was diagnosed with Stage III-C colon cancer. In March she had colon resection surgery, removing 1/3 of her colon and 19 lymph nodes. Four lymph nodes had cancer.  Also two nodules in her lungs were suspicious of metastasis. In May she was to start chemotherapy. This would give her 15% probability of a 5 year survival, and if it had metastasised, the likelihood was lowered to 2%. Weighing 100lbs, fearing she was too weak to survive the ravages of chemo and the odds against her, she opted for alternative treatments.

However, as of her last CT scan in November, it appears that the nodules in her lungs are growing, as have the lesion and nodule in her liver along with what appears to be multiple deposits in her lymph nodes. 

My objective is to raise enough money for Mary to have a relatively new, innovative and effective treatment called PNC-27. Studies have shown its effectiveness in late stage cancers like Mary's, with much greater odds than chemotherapy . Please watch the attached video.

Aside from Mary being the love of my life; she is caring and compassionate, always looking for the positive side of things and the good in people. She always has a smile readily available even when times get tough. Mary has lost 2 cousins to cancer in the last 4 months; yet she remains positive and optimistic.  Mary has touched the lives of everyone who knows her, and even some that don't.  She has given much of her time and efforts to enrich the lives of so many. 

We all know how much of a fighter she is, but this is one battle she cannot fight alone. She needs our help and support. So please let’s band together and do whatever we can. You know she would for us!
