Shirley is a senior citizen who worked in Center High School cafeteria until diagnosed with colon cancer. She needs $326.40 to clear her account balance with Colorectal Surgery Assiciates.

I was SHOCKED when I heard about her situation.

After undergoing treatment for Colon Cancer, paid under Medicare, Shirley is cancer free, but cannot return to work until a colostomy bag is removed. The medical business would not perform this operation until she paid some of her outstanding balance. I paid them $20 and they will now operate, and hopefully she can return to work. There is nothing illegal about it, but it feels wrong, to me, to withhold the final step in an already paid for treatment to accelerate debt collection. It is not extortion, but it feels like it!

I would like to help Shirley get back on her feet, back into her own home and back to work.

If WE can raise $326.40 we can clear her medical bill.

If WE can raise $5,000 we can clear all her other outstanding debts.
