On or around January 2009, our mother, Patricia Ann McCoy, was diagnosed with colon cancer. At the time of the operation to remove the tumor the doctors agreed that based on the information they collected, the cancer had not spread. They were wrong. One year later another 25 lb tumor was found in and around her stomach area and subsequently removed. About a month ago, after experiencing stomach pains, she was taken to the hospital and diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer.

Stage 4 cancer is by no means a death sentence but she does need active treatment. Every doctor she has visited within the past month has agreed that chemotherapy would be ineffective in treating her cancer and could actually kill her. After conducting our own research and consulting with several physicians we decided to have her treated by the Holistic Medical Clinic of Wilkesboro, NC, not far from Winston-Salem. The treatment she's currently receiving there includes daily injections of vitamin C, oxygen therapy and other forms of blood cell stimulation.
We believe this treatment will extend our mother's life for many years and allow her to see her grand kids grow into adults.

Unfortunately her insurance does not cover her treatment as it is considered "alternative care". Considering that alternative care is her only option, the four of us are desperately trying to cover the costs. Thankfully we have received a few contributions but we need more.

With that we ask if you would please help us extend our mother's life. Any donation would be greatly appreciated no matter the amount. We wouldn't ask if we didn't need the help.

Thank you,
Khepra, Dominic, Shannon & Heather
