Hello,

I'm Jessica's dad, Walter, and at the moment I'm trying to get my daughter the medical help she desperately needs. Jessica is 34 years old and was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer which later spread to her stomach. She also suffers from an hereditary liver disease (NASH) which is technically Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. Her mom died from this at the age of 51 mainly due to it not being diagnosed early enough.

Within the last year Jessica had undergone chemotherapy treatments which resulted in the Ovarian and Stomach cancers to go into remission.

We were informed by one of her doctors that the liver was probably adversely affected by steroid injections given as part of the chemotherapy she received and liver tests currently are severely elevated indicating immediate action is necessary. Treatment in the form of blood tests, an ultrasound and likely immediate surgery, are planned to take place at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in New Brunswick beginning this week. The cost of this treatment is high, and since Jessica is self-employed, her medical insurance is very costly with an extremely high deductible. Making the financial obligations for this treatiment more than we can currently afford. 

Since the Chemotherapy was paid for by our immediate family we've been depleted of the necessary cash and convertible assets to meet this amount. Over the past couple of weeks we've managed to gather together approximately $15,000 and felt a crowdfunding effort would be a last resort. Applications for charitable assistance were fruitless.

As we have run out of means to raise the remaining $7,000 I am asking for some financial help to reach the goal set by the physician office for Jessica to get the help she deserves as a kind and hard working person. Please help us to help Jessica get the medical help she needs.
