Still getting fatigued at times. But my nausea is better. Please keep sharing my page out to help and thank you again for all you help.
Well I was able to get my y90 treatment yesterday, but I still need help with the very large copays for it. Thank you to all who have helped and please, please share my page. I'm looking at larger bills from the treatment to help save me.
Still here at home. Now its raining constantly. I'm feeling OK, just really achy from the weather. Our power was out all last night. Power was back on this morning. Thank you again for all you support. And please share my page to everyone. :)
I've been snowed in since this blizzard came
I'm just thankful to have heat and power. Please everyone on the roads, be careful. Thank you again for all your support and please share my page.
I live in Northwest Indiana. We are under a blizzard warning right now. Most roads around me are closed, including interstates. Please, everyone be careful in this cold . In the bitter chill coming, one could get frostbite in 10 minutes from the -50 wind chil If you can, check on the elderly or home bound. My doctors appointment tomorrow was cancelled along with many schools. Please stay safe and if you are traveling I will say an extra prayer you get home safe. Thanks again for all the support and please keep sharing my page.
Brrrr. Its cold and gonna get colder in my neck of the woods. Still no final announcement about if I can.have the y90 yet. Thank you for all your help again and please share my page.

I do apologize for not posting more these last couple of days but I have been resting and sleeping alot. Please be careful if you're in the areas with snow and ice and as always, thank you for your support. Please share my page, also.
Today I am just exhausted and sleepy. Chemo and radiation takes a lot out of you and it can take weeks to bounce back. I hope everyone is going to have a good holiday with their families and friends. Thank you again and please keep sharing my page. :)
Bad day today. I hurt, feel exhausted, and keep praying my y90 radiation gets approved . Thank you for all your help and please share my page as much as you can. :)
Just finished radiation. I am exhausted and think I'm getting a sinus infection. My docs starting me on antibiotics today. My immune system is way down due to the chemo. Thanks for everyone's help and please keep sharing my page.
Radiation and seeing doctor is done. Thank you for all your help and the shares.
Another fun filled day of chemotherapy and radiation today. And its snowing again. So since i just got home, I'm gonna curl up and rest. Thank you again for all your help and please keep sharing my page. :)
We got a lot of snow here, so I did a lot of resting inside today and watched the snow come down. Please keep sharing my page and thank you again
Radiation done for this week. No decision yet for my liver therapy yet. Maybe next week. Thank you all for the help and please keep sharing my page. :)

Please help if you can and please share out my site to as many others as possible. Thank you again for all the help so far. :)

Todd just set up the humidifier for our bedroom. I keep waking up in the morning with a very dry nose. I wanted to tell everyone thank you so much for all the likes, posts about different treatments that might work and sharing my page across the social networks. Thank you.
Woke up aching more today. Weather changes seem to make me ache in my bones more. Todd's taking Tarren to school and I have radiation later. Thank you for all your help and please share my page to as many as you can.
On the way to another radiation treatment. I have to have them 5 days a week for a couple more weeks to help the tumor in my right hip. I am so astounded by the amount of support from everyone. Thank you so much.
Thank you all for your generous support. I am amazed and humbled by all the help so far. So thank you again.:)
On February 27th 2014 Sarah Reinert lost her battle with breast cancer. Thank you so much to everyone that donated to help her fight.
Below, is a small part of her story.
Hello, my name is Sarah Reinert I am just 35 and I have stage 4 breast cancer that has spread to my liver and bones.
Insurance premiums and co pays have eaten our savings and we are now facing very frightening times. Just last week, the day after my 35th birthday I found out that the chemotherapy I have been on is not working and the cancer is progressing.
I am a mother,
and a registered nurse.
However now I am the patient.
I now will receive very harsh chemotherapy one time a week and radiation every day to attempt to keep the cancer under control, but the doctors do not seem optimistic. All this and now because of the side effects from treatment and the advanced stage of my cancer I am no longer able to do the job I love. My work helped me stay positive knowing that I was helping others. For now that is gone and I have to focus on me and spending as much time as I can with my children. One small bright spot is that many doctors have told me that there is still hope, it is a liver direct treatment called Y90. They say it is the best chance to extend my life. But my insurance company is denying coverage due to the FDA not approving it as a breast cancer treatment yet. They call it experimental even though It has been proven to extend life in people with liver and colon cancer in the liver. However the FDA has not approved the Y90 for advanced breast cancer. The problem is that on top of all the expenses we have now the Y90 is very expensive.
And with our now crippled income I am worried I may even lose the insurance I do have. I am faced with very few choices but to turn to friends, family and even kind strangers for help.
So please help if you can. I am not ready to leave this world yet. I need to be here to watch my seven year old daughter grow up. I need to be here to see my step sons walk down the aisle. I want to be a grandmother, and I want to go back to work so I can help people heal and return to their lives.
I am going to stop now because I am crying again.
Please help if you can.
