This fundraiser to to help Lisa McDowell, a 45 yr old  single Mom who for the past 17 years  has been a caretaker in the health industry taking care of others, especially focusing on handicapped children. She now faces her own challenge in struggling through her own diagnosis of Stage 3 Colon cancer.  The monies raised are to be used to help Lisa keep her home that she has resided in for 10 years,keep the utilities on and relieve her of the financial anxiety she is facing  as the pressures of creditors are compromising the healing that she desperately needs.

In only 8 months,Lisa has undergone 2 surgeries, 7 unscheduled life-saving surgeries,spent 10 weeks in the hospital, lost 1/3 of her body weight and against all odds ,refuses to give up the ghost.

Doctors tell her that the last leg of this journey to heath will take approximately a year. Lisa is not without friends and family and everyone has come to her support her as best they can. It's just not enough..Lisa herslf is full of pride and only by twisting her arm for her password are we on here in her FB page

Here is a breakdown of where the monies will be headed:

Mtge: $768.-  (Currently 4 months behind)

Electricity:  $110-

Sewer & Water: $400 every 3 months ( Additionally,NorthEast Township is threatening to charge Lisa $300/day because she hasn't met local mandates to connect her "sewer line and connection")

Verizon: $230 (includes interne,.cell for Lisa, cell for daughter , no cable)

Natural fuel: $78

Car lease: $300 

Car Insurance: $ 280- ( trying to get Progressive insurance co. to suspend coverage as she isn't driving, but lienholder won't let it be suspended.)

Lisa has applied for Social Security disability  and is hoping for a speedy determination.      

Please contribute to her cause in whatever denomination is comfortable for you, It doesn't have to be all at once.

 Those who know Lisa, know she's got the biggest heart and ask to share her cause and above all keep her in your prayers.
