Rachel Routon's Cancer Help Fund

$2,309 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 35 people in 57 months
Hello. My name is Rachel Routon, and last year I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. I am unable to work a regular job due to my constant pain, and chemo therapy schedule. I do get SSI, but it only covers rent. At the end of the month I have no money for bills, food, or gas. Now my car is mostly borken (check engine light on, idle problem, doesnt always start, breaks grinding) and I am scared that when it is gone for good I will have a hard time getting myself to and from my chemotherapy infusions, and other doctors appointments. 

For those wondering, my cancer is non curative. I do not know how much longer I have, but I have high hopes and I try to stay as positive as possible, as hard as that is sometimes.  I have had several surgeries for tumor removal, as well as other procedured that are meant to help me live as long as possible.  I am usually in a great deal of pain.

Any little bit helps, I appreciate everything.  What I have received over the last year or so through this go fund me has enabled me to pay rent on time, and also pay bills and buy groceries... I hate to have to rely on people for help, but that is the situation I am in.  If you have already donated, or if you even just put this up on your facebook or website- thank you SO VERY MUCH.  Everything helps, honestly.  Everything.

I got second place in a writing contest that you won. And that's the only way you know me. It's a shame to see someone as talented as you suffering like this. I'll do what little I can to help.

I've shared your story with as many people as I could. I hope this helps. Even if it is just a little.
