Bekah is happy, goofy teenager, and an 8th grader at Derby Middle School from Derby, KS. On 9/11/12, at only 14 yrs old, doctors found a large mass in Bekah's lower abdomen. It was found to be malignant and diagnosed with Ovarian Carcinoma. It is an extremely aggressive and rare cancer and even more rare in children Bekah's age. Because of the aggressiveness of the tumor, Chemotherapy was started on 9/18/12 and an aggressive approach remains. Bekah's mom is a single mother and not able to work right now to care for her daughter. Child support isn't enough to maintain keeping the bills, rent, health insurance premiums, car payment and so on needed to keep a roof over Bekah's head, drive here back and forth to at least 2 doctor appt's weekly, and even groceries and needs. Insurance doesn't cover many expenses Bekah requires. But Bekah had been doing well until 11/12/12 when Bekahs health began to take a down turn. During surgery performed on 11/18/12, doctors found that Bekahs cancer had progressed into her many parts of her stomach and there was nothing more that could be done. The original tumor was excreting a high amount of fluid into Bekahs stomach cavity to complicate an already dire situation. On 11/2012, Bekah was taken home and put into Hospice Care. Her family have been working tirelessly to grant wishes she has made before she goes to Heaven. And ahead her single mother faces an expensive funeral expense which is a hardship just as a thought. We wish to thank EVERYONE who has supported us along the way!
