Karen Anstine Lamb is a 37 year old woman from Sedalia, Mo.  Five years ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a mastectomy.  Chemo and radiation were not indicated at the time, so after recovering from her surgery, she went on with life with her husband Chris, and her three children: Jacob, who is now 18, Madison, who is now 14, and Erika, who is now 9.  This past November, the family moved to Crystal Lake, Illinois, for Chris's job.  During the packing and moving process, Karen noticed that her back was hurting, but thought it was from all of the moving labor.  After they were unpacked and settled, the pain continued to get worse and she went to see an oncologist.  After several tests, it has been determined that her cancer is back and is now in her thoracic spine.  At this time, they are still trying to make sure that it has not spread anywhere else.  We hope and pray that this is the only new location!  Regardless of the outcome, she will need radiation and chemo to treat the disease.  If the cancer is only located in her spine and they are able to operate, they will perform a major surgery to remove it to give her the best chance at a cure.  Chris has been able to accept another position within his company so that he can get Karen home to be with family and friends during this very difficult time.  The goal of this fundraiser is to help them with the expenses they will incur to make the move to get her home and the expenses they will incur for her cancer care.  Karen is loved by so many people and this is one way that we can try to help take some of the burden off of her and her family!  Thank you in advance for any and all support for our dearest Karen!
